Zadar’s canal divides the town Zadar from Ugljan, its closes island. It is also the island with most frequently visited ferry port on an island at the Adriatic, Preko, distanced from Zadar just 8 kilometers. Within reach of Preko there is the smallest settlement on the island, Poljana. It is the tame and pretty place bounded by a picturesque peninsula St. Peter with the same name Romanic church from 13th century on one side, and the line of private house on the other.
Private hoses of Poljana hide cozy and silent private apartments and rooms, maintained by kind hosts, whose hospitality is unobtrusive as the village is itself. Small and peaceful, it is a place for all of those who appreciate unspoiled peaces of nature and rural environment with no rush and fuss, typical for tourist centers.
Poljana has savage pebble beaches and clean bluish sea. Mild climate conditions allow bathing at the sea from May till October. Sport courts in the open, such as the one for basketball, football and bowling, along with bicycle tracks, can add a bit of activity into your peaceful and lazy mornings and afternoons.
Poljana is settled on a part of the island with the great number of wellsprings and another great number of sunny hours, which favors growth of various breeds of vegetable and fruits throughout the whole year. Maybe that is the reason why the main occupation of 270 inhabitants of Poljana, is agriculture and especially olive growth. The gastronomy of the whole island reclines on home grown products and ecological healthy environment.
