Tour overview

    It is a true pleasure to escape the breakneck speed of modern life and return to a simple way of living. Such is the place of Ravni kotari where you can meet the traditional way of life from the local folks directly!

    Every region writes its own history and has its own specific customs, traditions, attractions and culture. The area of Ravni kotari and Benkovac has been marked by numerous events that have shaped this region’s history since ancient times up to today.

    On this tour, take a walk and explore the local settlements in Ravni kotari and see the once magnificent town of Asseria near Podgrađe. In what used to be one of the most important Liburnian and, subsequently, Roman settlement in the area of north Dalmatia, you can now find authentic Roman milestones, together with many other remnants of Rome’s advanced lifestyle and construction methods.

    Afterwards, we will take a tour through the city of Benkovac. The region of Benkovac and its people will familiarise you with the rich history and customs of the area, as well as with the authentic products and food that is still made by hand, in a natural way. The population there is becoming increasingly focused on preserving the local identity, traditions and customs, preserving the environment and strengthening autochthonous, traditional and ecological production, thus significantly stimulating the development of rural areas.

    At the end of our journey, we will take you to a local family-run farm for wine tasting and sampling of the traditional Benkovac dish „prisnac“.

    Get to know the heart of Ravni kotari and find out why Benkovac has played a pivotal role in the development of Zadar since ancient times, and why the sea and the hinterland can’t live without each other!
