The famous American director Alfred Hitchcock said that Zadar has the most beautiful sunset in the world. Locals took it very seriously. So, in this three-thousand-year-old historic city, they immortalized that sunset with an excellent installation, “Salutation to the Sun,” designed by the extraordinary Zadar architect Nikola Bašić.
With three hundred multi-layered glass panels, this impressive work of art is placed 22 meters in diameter in the waterfront plane after the sunset shine with the most beautiful colors.
Iadera was its name during the Roman imperium.
Today, IADERA is a 5-star HOTEL & SPA by Falkensteiner situated at Punta Skala, in Petrčane close to Zadar, surrounded by the sea and the olive trees.
It’s been two years since we visited Iadera and have been missing it since then. I love its design, maritime, modern and practical, with nice rooms.
The Mediterranean food is the healthiest food
Mediterranean food is the healthiest in the world. Fish, fruits, vegetables, always prepared fresh and seasonal with the world’s best olive oil.
