Welcome to Šibenik – a city with two UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Enter the Old Town and walk the narrow, stone streets while admiring gothic and renaissance palaces. See the St. James Cathedral, an architectural gem built by the famous Juraj Dalmatinac. Take your time to explore both the interior and the grandiose exterior covered with sculptures and ornaments.

Just next to the Cathedral is the Large Loggia, the seat of administration set in the central square.

Did you know that Šibenik has four fortresses defending it? The oldest one is named after the town’s patron saint – St. Michael, the archangel. Alongside the Barone Fortress, it is the perfect venue to enjoy concerts performed by some of the biggest music stars.

The threat of the Ottoman invasion was so great that the St. John Fortress was built in mere 58 days.

St. Nicholas’ Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, guards the only channel to Šibenik Bay, for centuries preventing invaders to approach the town by the sea.

Relax and have a drink in the beautiful Medieval Mediterranean Garden of St. Lawrence.

To end the day, enjoy the traditional Dalmatian cuisine, based on olive oil and seafood, in an authentic local tavern – konoba.
