The town of Zadar, represents the largest urban agglomeration in the costal belt stretching between Rijeka and Split. The town nucleus was formed a long time ago on a tiny peninsula lying parallel to the mainland and enclosing a natural harbor. It was after salt water filled in a tectonic depression created where the continuity of lime-stone layers was broken, that the harbour appeared. Of all towns on the coast, Zadar is the only one not located at the foot of some mountain chain. Instead, it lies on the ridge of a fertile plain known as Ravni kotari or Lowland Counties, the largest plains-area on this coast, with gently modelled relief and interesting geomorphologic features like the broad and shallow sandy coves of the Ninski, Ljubac(ki and Plemic(ki Bays (corresponding to the nearby coves of the island of Pag), or the fresh water Lake Vransko (a sunk Karst valley) located close to the sea.

Numerous islands, of which 24 larger ones and approxima­tely three hundred islets and rocks, arranged in three rows and parallel to the coast-line, are of crenulated outlines with deep coves and inlets. Of supreme beauty are the south part of the Dugi otok and the precipitous and picturesque cliffs (known among natives also as “stene” and “krun”) of the outer string of the Kornatski Islands. The islands Ugljan and Pašman, located closest to Zadar, form, together with the coastal strip stretching opposite to them, the Channel of Zadar.

To the north of Ravni kotari lie two connected bays known as seas – Novigradsko and Karinsko more which together with the river Zrmanja, whose waters flow into the sea of Novigrad, mark the borderline between the lowlands and the hillsides of the Velebit mountain, whose highest peaks rise over one thousand metres above sea lavel. Downstream from Obrovac and all the way to the mouth, the river forces her way through a canyon whose faces are devoid of vegetation. Maslenic(ko ždrilo (a narrow pas­sage) of the same characteristics connects it with the Velebitski Channel. Owing to its topographical position, Zadar has a mild climate. In summer a gentle lendward breeze called “maestral” circulates in the Channel of Zadar refreshing , hot air, while in winter the vast level country in its background moderates considerably the violent blows of bora.

Very early humans settled in the area of Zadar. Single archeological finds witness to the way of life of the early stone age (Paleolithic) cultivators who inhabited this part of the Adriatic when it had a radically different appearance from what it looks like now. The history of Zadar begins with a 4th century Greek inscription found in Faros (present-day Starigrad in the island of Hvar). The inscription records a Greek victory won over “Zadar and its allies”. Based on this evidence, historians concluded that Zadar must have led a group of belicious tribes which were offering fierce resistence to the Greek colonization of the east Adriatic coast. The fact that the north part of the coast was settled by the lllyric Liburns makes it probable that he dwellers of Zadar were their stongest tribe, or that Zadar was one of their centers, maybe even the principal one.
