Šibenik is Croatian town more than 1000 years old, located in the naturally protected harbor on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea and at the estuary of the Krka River.
It was founded as early Croatian fortress at the bottom of St. Michael castle which still dominates the town. Šibenik was mentioned for the first time in 1066 in the document of King Petar Kresimir IV, the most important Croatian ruler. At the entrance to the sea channel you will see the most important renaissance fortress on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea - St. Nicholas' which during the night looks as an amazing alighted island.
Šibenik St. James cathedral had been build for a hundred years at the turn of 14 to 15th century and in its architecture we can see both gothic and renaissance style.
Šibenik has also a very impressive archipelago among which Kornati are the most famous. The Kornati National Park's 150 islands can provide an unforgettable sailing experience as you anchor at any of the hidden beaches, sandy inlets and tiny ports.

Its rich cultural heritage was created under the influence of old Greeks, Romans, and Venetians. Historical city core, with about 10 churches and numerous buildings from 13th century is something you shouldn’t miss. The city gate (17th cent.) and city walls (15th cent.) are pride of Trogir’s citizen and the touristic attractions. Best place, to see spectacular sunsets, is on the cape of small Ciovo Island connected by bridge with Trogir. While sitting on the waterfront enjoy this magic city.
Island Hvar is a magnificent creation of nature and human. The name of the island is without doubt Greek in origin, from Pharos which means lighthouse. Hvar is the longest and the sunniest Croatian island, and one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Town Hvar and other towns and villages on the island have numerous architectural and cultural monuments, which witness to the outstanding artistic traditions of the island, the economic prosperity of its population and the relations Hvar used to maintain with cultural centers of the past centuries.
