    Very nice experience We were looking for two bikes so we could ride to Nin, a small city near Zadar. In Zzuum they welcomed us in a friendly way and gave us all the information we needed. For only 200 kuna we rented two brand new bikes for 24 hours. The road to Nin goes up and down but with the bicylce gears it was child's play. We would really recomed Zzuum!


    Wij hebben hier een dag mountainbikes gehuurd en zijn met kinderen op eigen gelegenheid naar Nin gefietst. Prima materiaal en vriendelijke eigenaresse.

    Reasonably priced - brilliant service Great little bike hire shop with all the equipment you need to explore the area by bike. The staff were really friendly and happy to give us information on good routes. We had a wonderful day - will definitely hire bikes from Zzuum again when we're next in Zadar.

    Enjoyable day of Cycling We rented 2 bikes in the morning for the day. We asked for the route to Nin and we were given a map as well as oral directions on how to get there. The bikes we were given were in great condition and simple to use. We were also given a bike bag with a lock, a spare wheel, pump and tuning at no extra cost. There's also the option of keeping your bikes overnight if needed. We really enjoyed the opportunity to see more of the area and to get some. exercise in too. I'd highly recommend renting bikes from these guys for a cheap yet thoroughly enjoyable day out.

    Friendly bike rental service This was the only physical bike rental space that we found on Zadar. The others deliver.
    Zzuum staff were friendly, gave us island maps and ferry times, and the bikes were fine.
    The cycle paths on Ugljan are not well marked! But Zzuum's advice on hidden swimming coves was perfect and we had a great day without the crowds.
    Remember to go to the (very modern and efficient) Gazenica ferry port with the bikes to get to the islands, and not the pedestrian-only ferry in the Old Town.
    The next day we cycled to Nin. Again cycle path signs are not good and all the one way route out of Zadar is against you. But this made coming back a doodle! Nin is spectacular with the salt pans and very exposed beach. Mid August is not the time to go! Crowds and too hot for those withnsun-sensitive skin

    Bike renting in Zadar from zzuum - Active Vacation We rented bicykles from zzuum - Active Vacation when we was in Zadar. It gave us the possibility to see and feel the beautiful coast/landscape. zzuum - Active Vacation gave us a map with biking routes and they sent with us spare parts in case something happened with the bike. We can recommend zzuum - Active Vacation. Torild and Bertil

    Excellent bike hire right in the centre of old town. The owner was really helpful and even gave us directions for our amazing bike ride around the coast to Nin. Great service all round.

Bike route to Nin goes along the seaside which allows you to enjoy the scenery and to discover several small villages while you ride the bike – Diklo, Kožino, Petrčane. They are all situated on the coast and surrounded with old olive groves and pine forests. If you decide to take a rest and go for a swimming, no problem! Just choose the beach you like the most because there will be lots of them on your way to Nin.


Church St. Nicholas was built in late 11th century and at the beginning of 12th century. It is situated on the field of Prahulje and represents the only Dalmatian early-Romanesque church of that type. It is only 5,9 m long, 5,7 m wide and 6m high. This church has an important place in Croatian history because seven kings of Croatian dynasty were crowned there.


For those who want to learn a bit more about the history of Nin, The Museum of Nin Antiquities is the place where you should start. There you can see the remains of Prehistoric, Roman and Old Croatian life of Nin displayed in seven rooms depending on the period and the theme they describe. The most valuable findings are two original typical Croatian boats from 11th century called Condura Croatica.
