Welcome to Šibenik – a city with two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We will take you on a journey through thousand years of Šibenik's history, starting with the mighty Croatian kings, followed by prosperity under the rule of the Venice Republic, a century-long Austrian rule, and then the turbulent 20th century, full of conflicts and destruction. On our way, we will visit all the main sights but also hidden places known to locals only.

See the St. James Cathedral, an architectural gem built by the famous Juraj Dalmatinac. Take your time to explore the grandiose exterior covered with sculptures and ornaments. Next, we will enter the Cathedral to see the interior and learn about the unusual way the building was constructed - purely out of stone.

Just next to the Cathedral is the Large Loggia, the seat of administration set in the central square. The Rector's Palace once was the center of power and today it's an important museum. The Ottoman threat was so great that Šibenik's fortification system boasts four fortresses that overlook the Old Town. Learn about the need to defend the town and how it was accomplished.

While walking the stone streets you will hear stories of medieval life, legends and facts, noblemen and the common folk, merchants and soldiers, people and events that made Šibenik what it is today - a pearl of the Adriatic in which past times echo through narrow streets.
