  • February 24, 2020

A magnificent medieval city with gleaming white labyrinth of stone alleys, historical fortress and impressive Cathedral against the placid of the bay.

A classic Dalmatian destination in many ways, historic Šibenik is coming into its own after being somewhat left behind by nearby Zadar and Split.

One city with two UNESCO sites, current attractions range from a falconry center to a renovated masterpiece of Renaissance heritage, the Cathedral of St James.

Fringed by a pretty if underused harbor, Šibenik makes a pleasant, undemanding change from its now tourist-swamped coastal counterparts, while still offering quality Adriatic cuisine at an improving array of restaurants.
