Šibenik is a historical town in Northern Dalmatia, famous for its natural and cultural heritage. It is the largest Adriatic town originally founded by Croats, and the first town in the world to get AC street lights. The two main sights are St. James’ Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with beautiful architecture, and the monumental St. Michael’s Fortress, offering the stunning view of the town, the mouth of the Krka and the nearby islands. Make sure you don’t miss any of those landmarks, but the wider area is also worth visiting for its beautiful nature and cultural events. There are two national parks nearby – Kornati and Krka. The former is a breathtaking archipelago to the northwest of the town, while the latter consists of beautiful waterfalls and unique karst formations. Many coastal and island resorts like Vodice, Primošten or Rogoznica and Zlarin or Prvić, respectively, attract lots of tourists each summer. The International Children’s Festival, established in 1960, takes place every June, while the Super Uho (Super Ear) Festival, the Garden Festival, Hacienda Vodice and many other nightlife events and destinations in the area are world-known among party lovers. Many notable people are from Šibenik, mostly sportsmen and artists.
