Welcome to Šibenik

Šibenik is located in the central part of the Adriatic, in a picturesque, indented bay in which Krka, one of the most beautiful Croatian karst rivers, flows. Today Šibenik is the administrative, political, economic, social and cultural centre of the Šibenik-Knin County. A look at Šibenik reveals a unique harmony of urban town poetics with its natural surroundings. The port, which is connected to the open sea by St. Anthony’s Canal, has for centuries been the driver of the development of navigation, trade and overall economic growth of the town. The entrance to the canal features the most significant Renaissance fortress on the east side of the Adriatic – St. Nicola’s Fortress. Together with St. Michael’s Fortress, St. John’s Fortress and Šubićevac Fortress which surround the city, the fortress is a symbol of a hundred year old invincibility of Šibenik.
