Historic city with four amazing fortresses,St.James Cathedral, crystal sea and close to two national parks - Krka i Kornati.
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.
