Easter holidays in Zadar region

Dyeing Easter eggs in a workshop at Zaton Holiday Resort

Wishing you a happy Easter and a basket full of egg-cellent moments with your loved ones! It’s the time of year when we celebrate the awakening of nature, new life and hope. It’s also the moment when Zaton Holiday Resort has reopened its doors with faith in good times ahead, those irresistible #ZatonMoments you get to share with your family and friends.


Indeed, it’s a very special time of year. So, find out how it’s celebrated in the Zadar region and particularly at Zaton Holiday Resort as the perfect start to a memorable season 2022:


Easter in Dalmatia

It’s family time! One of the most important Christian holidays is observed throughout the country, with family gatherings, spring cleaning of the house and outdoors, and church service. Also, Maundy Thursday through Holy Saturday is a quiet time for contemplation. In Dalmatia it was even customary to tie up the church bells, so they wouldn’t toll. Traditions may partially differ from one region to another, but welcoming spring and celebrating rebirth over delicious food with loved ones is common to all. Also, dyeing Easter eggs is an established tradition everywhere.


The Easter table is an important traditional feature as well. Fish such as common pandora, chub mackerel, sea bream, as well as seafood and octopus are generally taken on Good Friday. Then, a basket with a typical sweet bread called pinca, ham (in bread), eggs, spring onions, horseradish and radish, is taken to a Holy Saturday evening service or Easter Sunday morning service for blessings. The traditional breakfast is then followed by a rich lunch, in Dalmatia often with lamb meat and good red wine.
