As I am a physically disabled person who uses a wheelchair to move, it was important to me that the Tourist Board website provides information on where and how disabled people can move around Zadar, or whether they can visit restaurants, theater and museums, or how to access apartments and the like. . In that sense, I expect the site to have more and more information day by day. Now we finally have a unique place that can be visited by a large population of people with disabilities, regardless of the type of disability”Concludes Jadrijev.  Which Zadar restaurants are adapted for people with disabilities, which directions to move around the Peninsula or which routes are most suitable for people with disabilities to get to the museum or sports hall? – only a part of the new content is on the web pages of the Tourist Board of the City of Zadar, and the same and plenty of other information on their computers can be reached by people with disabilities.
