Day 2 was followed by another jam-packed day in Zadar, Croatia! Our third day consisted of a trip to the Museum of Illusions, lunch at Proto Food&More, and afternoon cake at Art Kavana. If you’re interested in planning a holiday, or if you’re looking to find out what to do in Zadar, Croatia, here’s my guide.
What To Do In Zadar – Museum of Illusions
I knew that The Museum of Illusions would be a winner with us. We had an AMAZING time! There were so many puzzles and games to do, and there were optical illusions which made you feel physically ill! The morning was full of side-splitting laughter 🙂
Do the red lines look straight or curved to you?
What about these words below?
We had a lot of fun figuring out these illusions! Then came the weird mirrors!
Some of the illusions were very pretty too!
And some shrunk us down!
Next was the Vortex Tunnel, which felt so real, I actually had to hang on for dear life! Check out this video below of us stepping into the Vortex Tunnel.
Then there were millions of us!

We had an awesome time in the Museum of Illusions! So much so that we were starving by the end! When we left we headed straight for one of the best restaurants in town! Proto Food&More!
What To Do In Zadar – Proto Food&More
Proto Food&More was a beautiful restaurant and it had some of the kindest, well-mannered staff. You could choose to sit outside, or just inside the veranda. We selected a lovely table inside.
If you’re trying to figure out what to do in Zadar, you just have to visit this place once – maybe even more than once because there are so many delicious dishes on the menu.
Emily and I ordered cocktails, and Alicia ordered wine.
When it came to the food decisions, all three of us were stumped. There were soooooo many great looking dishes to choose from. The owner of Proto Food&More tended to us personally and advised us of all the options. We decided to take his advice and order the sharing platter!

I decided to go for the Tuna Steak and Cuttlefish Gnocchi because the owner of Proto Food&More advised me to get it. They make the gnocchi on site and even invited us to see how it was made! It was a lovely experience.
I have to say that when the plate arrived in front of me I did panic. I don’t know what it is about eating black food, but I was worried nonetheless. However, I really enjoyed it. It wasn’t something I’d usually pick for myself as gnocchi can be very heavy, and granted, I couldn’t eat it all. But the tuna was cooked well, and the cuttlefish taste was good too!
For lightness and freshness, I think I would have picked Alicia’s dish if I could do it all over again. But I don’t think I would have been able to eat all of it either. They definitely didn’t scrimp on the quantity of food! We finished them off with some nice G&T’s.
What To Do In Zadar – Art Kavana
Despite being full and a bit tipsy, we wandered around for about 30 minutes before deciding to call in at Art Kavana, the best cake shop in Zadar! I don’t know how we managed to eat and drink even more but we did. Zero regrets.
I selected the amazing “Greeting to the Sun” cake, Emily had the custard pie, and Alicia had some tea (shock horror). It was really good 🙂
We ended up having an awesome chat over coffee and cake, which will appear on another blog I’ll link back to. I basically interviewed them about their lives and forced them to answer truthfully about everything! Check back here for a link!
