Zadar Airport Zemunik (ZAD) has good connections with most cities in Europe and Croatia. It is situated 20 minutes from the city centre and there are several ways to reach it.

By car

There are few roads that lead to Zadar, but we recommend highway A1 (route Zagreb-Split). You should take exit Zadar istok (Zadar east) or Zadar zapad (Zadar west).

By ferry

If you are coming from Italy, the shortest possible route is through Ancona by ferry to Zadar. The journey lasts about 8 hours (departure is normally at 22:00 and arrival at 06:00) and the advantage of such a trip is that it is much more pleasant and you are under less stress.
