What to expect

Šibenik and Islands Tour

Built as a part of the Venetian defensive system, the unusual island fortress of St. Nicholas amazes visitors with its unique triangular shape and resistant construction. Due to its singularity, it has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List and just recently opened for visitors. Explore the area, walk through the old chambers of the fortress and learn about the defense of the old Šibenik Town though history.

Continue your boat ride until reaching the old town of Šibenik. Despite holding one of the greatest architectural wonders of the world, St. James Cathedral, and being a hometown of many famous Croats, this city is still often unfairly overlooked by tourists. Enjoy discovering all the little secrets Šibenik has to offer to its visitors. You’ll find local people very friendly and welcoming. Explore its historic core on foot, wander its streets, discover every corner of its squares, taste local cuisine or relax by the seaside.

Don’t miss your chance to visit St. James Cathedral. This UNESCO site will amaze you with its unique building solutions, amazing decorations carved into stone, grandiose interior with beautiful galleries and one of the prettiest baptisteries you’ll ever see.

After visiting Šibenik, you’ll get a chance to explore two exceptionally beautiful and attractive islands nearby – Krapanj and Zlarin. Krapanj is known in the area as the lowest and smallest inhabited island in the Adriatic. Its history hides a very strong tradition of sponge manufacture. Zlarin, on the other hand, is well known for its traditional coral jewelry manufacture. These two are a great stop while exploring the Šibenik area.

The journey continues back south to Primošten. Enjoy the fantastic atmosphere of this well preserved medieval Mediterranean fisherman village. A small town built on an island is more than charming in every way you can imagine with all the local beaches, great inviting restaurants and traditional taverns. Exploring its narrow streets will give you a fantastic insight into the local life.

Enjoy your ride back to the starting point of the tour in the late afternoon.
