Two hundred forty beautiful islets and reefs adorn the crystalline waters of the Šibenik region, one of the fascinating Adriatic area and a fantastic holiday destination for families with children. The unspoiled landscapes of the Kornati archipelago or the mind-blowing waterfalls and lakes of Krka are designated national parks and only two of the unmissable stops on your island-hopping route. In Šibenik, you are bound to have a memorable holiday!
Uncover the historical treasury in Šibenik, a town known by its four towers and by the Cathedral of Saint James. As soon as you arrive in the city, you will be greeted by the 38-meter high cathedral, the only building in Europe that was being constructed entirely of stone for 105 years. Thanks to that, Šibenik is included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Šibenik is a stand-out Dalmatian city where cultural heritage, local cuisine, and mesmerizing nature blend into the perfect Mediterranean holiday experience.
The Šibenik cuisine is, in fact, a typical Dalmatian cuisine, which forms a gastronomical holy trinity of Mediterranean herbs, fish, and olive oil. On the coastline of the region, you can taste different kinds of fish and, by far, the best known Šibenik mussels, picked at the green Krka river flows into the Adriatic Sea.
The comfort of the traditional taverns and a drop of the aromatic Babić wine, whose sun- bathed vineyards spread across the Primošten vine-growing area. On the other side, the Dalmatian inland area complements gastronomical stories with meaty tastes of lamb, sheep and goat cheeses, and the Drniš prosciutto, whose one-hundred-year-old manufacture tradition has been maintained until today.
To the Šibenik region landscape, nature gave a wealth of islands and islets, the unique beauty of the sea, and the delightful landscape of the Krka river, all ideal for an active holiday. Embark on the adventure of island-hopping, or hike and cycle the fantastic trails of Krka National park. Visit this unique karst beauty, which springs at Knin and flows into the Adriatic Sea at Šibenik, and take a swim in the most emerald green lakes!
The beauty of Kornati National Park will also take your breath away, an archipelago with its islands scattered across the sea like pearls, which, by so many things, represents a true paradise. Is it because of the immense landscape beauty, large coastal indentation, bizarre rock shapes, high cliffs, or something else? It is up to you to decide. Dare to explore the attractions of the Šibenik region!
