About City of Šibenik
Šibenik stands out among Croatian cities by its unique position in the central part of Croatian Adriatic, in picturesque and spatious bay on the sunken estuary of Krka, the most beautiful karst river which is a national park for the most of its length.
This beautiful city of unique urban expression is connected to the open sea by the picturesque, narrow and winding St.Anthony’s Channel. Entrance to the channel is guarded by St.Nicholas’ Fortress, dating from Renaissance times, which together
with three other City fortresses – St.Michael’s, St.John’s and Šubićevac, stands as a symbol of centuries-old continued resistance of Šibenik, and one of the three such fortifications in the Mediterranean.Tourists attractions in region
