Vinjerac, Croatia - holiday information

Vinjerac, Croatia – visitor information

If you are looking for a real relaxing vacation, in peace and quiet, away from the noise and crowds of big tourist centres than Vinjerac is a place for you. It is located only 35 kilometres northeast from Zadar, on the slopes of mountain Velebit on the south side of the Velebit channel. Although it is a small settlement it takes pride in its rich historic heritage. The settlement was under Venetian, Turkish, French and Austrian dominion. Since the population was mostly made of fishermen and sailors in the past the settlement has a typical look of a maritime fishing village. Today Vinjerac has a population of about 250 people whose main vocation is tourism. Beaches, that are for the most part gravely, are adorned by clear clean sea and the vicinity of the mountain makes the air extremely fresh and clean. Accommodation is available in private apartments and/or rooms. While staying in this little settlement don’t miss on tasting the fish specialities in one of the local taverns and restaurants out of which we recommend that you visit the tavern Pece. And since Vinjerac is on such ideal position, in the vicinity of national parks (Velebit, Kornati , Paklenica i Plitvicka jezera), the wonderful river Zrmanja and its waterfalls as well as cities Zadar and Nin it can be a base for many excursions.
