Šibenik is a small picturesque tourist resort in Croatia , situated between the cities Zadar and Trogir . It lies at the mouth of the Krka River on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Šibenik has about 52,000 inhabitants.

Little bit of history

The first written record of the city comes from 1066. Šibenik was founded by the Croatians. In 1298, it was given the status of a city. The inhabitants managed to defend their city from Venetian and later Ottoman attacks. In the 17th century, fortification walls and a fort were built. After the First World War, Šibenik became a part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. It was later annexed to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. During the Second World War, Šibenik was occupied by Italy. Since 1992, it has been a part of independent Croatia.

The most significant architectonic monument


The city is dominated by the Cathedral of St James from the turn of the 15th and 16th century. The construction of this impressive building took more than 100 years. The cathedral is characterized by harmonic proportions, lightness and masterfully carved statues made by several Italian artists. The cathedral was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site List in 2000. The entrance to the cathedral is free of charge from May to October. Outside these months, you can visit it only during the masses.

Other monuments


When in Šibenik, you cannot miss the architectonically interesting town hall built in the Renaissance Style. The Church of St Barbara was built in 1461 and today, there is a collection of religious art inside. Other monuments in the city include the Bishop's Palace from the 15th century, the Church of St Nicholas from the 18th century and the Duke's Palace with the city museum.

National parks


North of the city Šibenik, there are two national parks: the Krka National Park and the Plitvice Lakes National Park.
