Sibenik is located in Mid-Dalmatia, where the Krka River runs into Sibenik Bay. The historic buildings in the old part of the city provide an excellent insight into some of the phases involved in the evolution of a medieval city.
In addition to its numerous monuments, the city’s most outstanding tourist attraction is the 15th century St. Jacob’s Cathedral – a masterpiece of Dalmatia’s Gothic-Renaissance architecture. The Cathedral appears on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Nearby to the Cathedral stands the 15th century, Renaissance style Town Hall, with its decorative loggias. Sections of the medieval city-wall and its bastions have survived to the present. From the fortifications dotted on the hills overlooking the harbour – those of St. Ann, St. Michael, St. Nicholas and St. John – a brilliant view can be had of the sea.
Sibenik is an excellent base from which to explore the nearby Krka and Kornat National Parks.
