The island of Zirje is located far from the Croatian mainland surrounded by the deep blue waters of the Adriatic Sea. A compact island comprising of only about 15 square kilometers, this quaint island is ideal for budding historians, nature lovers and escapists. It is lyiing off the coast of Northern Dalmatia. Don't let the fact that Zirje has only 250 residents fool you – the island has a long history, which becomes evident upon viewing its impressive fortress. Casting an imposing shadow into the indigo hued Adriatic Sea below, the fortress is truly a sight to be hold, whether viewed close up or from the town of Gradia and the Gustijema hillside. Evidence of historical activity can be found all over the island, you just need a keen eye for it! The historical theme continues away from the coast as well – indeed, many consider a visit to the Sibenik city in Croatia a once in a life time opportunity due to its cultural heritage, fortresses and sacred monuments. If you want to stay close to the action and really explore the historical sights here, then by all means book a Zirje apartment in the city. Our coastal Zirje villas might just change your mind though!
