Tour description

Let' take a walk through this interesting city with amazing stairy streets, that make you feel like you are stuck in the Middle Age - ŠIBENIK!
Šibenik is the oldest native Croatian city on the Adriatic.
It is first mentioned on Christmas Day 1066 in the deed of gift of King Petar Krešimir IV, so it is also called Krešimir's town.
Thanks to Nikola Tesla's patents, on August 28, 1895, Šibenik became the first city in the world to receive public lighting on alternating electricity.
What also makes him amazing is the Cathedral of St. James - a unique building under the protection of UNESCO since 2000.
Sibenik is a city of 4 fortresses, which served to defend the city, from the seaside and the land side, and the magnificent fortress of St. Nicholas is today under the protection of UNESCO.

Sibenik is the hometown of many famous people, among them the famous Sibenik innovator and inventor Faust Vrančić, who gave the world - a parachute, a suspension bridge, and a cable car. Also one of the greatest Croatian and world basketball players - Dražen Petrović, who was called "basketball Mozart" because of his sports genius, Maksim Mrvica- a great pianist, Goran Visnjic - an actor, and many more...
Some of the highlights of Sibenik you will see in this tour:

  • Sibenik Cathedral of St Jacob
  • St John's church
  • Unique coats of arms on Sibenik palaces
  • Fat street
  • City Hall
  • The oldest church in town
  • Music Square
  • St Francisco monastery

 and much more...
 
But let it be a pleasant surprise to you. 😊


 -  I warmly recommend booking the tour 1 day in advance.
