Šibenik city

Šibenik is a political, economic and cultural center of Šibenik-Knin county. It is situated almost in the centre of the eastern Adriatic coast, in a colourful and indented bay in which the Krka River, one of the most beautiful karst rivers in Croatia, flows into.

Surrounded by fortresses St. Nikola, St. Ivan and Šubićevac, Šibenik is a harmonious combination of the old city centre with narrow and steep streets and the modern architecture. Šibenik is mentioned for the first time in the charter of king Petar Krešimir IV, the reason why it is called Krešimir’s city.

Closely connected to the territorial expansion and development of the early Croatian country, the historical city of Šibenik is rich in cultural and historical monuments. The most famous among them is without any doubt the cathedral, one of the most original buildings of the European late Middle Ages, closely connected to the famous local master Juraj Matejev Dalmatinac. In the proximity of the cathedral there is also the bishop’s court, the city hall, the prince’s palace... 

Šibenik today is a tourist centre situated in the area where the best-indented group of islands in Europe (the Kornati archipelago) and karst hydrographical phenomena (Skradinski buk, Visovac, Roški slap) come together into the most attractive ecological, aesthetic, tourist and recreational area on the Croatian part of the Adriatic.
