The Cathedral of St. Jakov in Šibenik is one of the most significant and most beautiful architectural achievements in Croatia. Since 2000 it is the part of the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The cathedral demonstrates three different styles: Gothic, Gothic-Renaissance and Renaissance. The cathedral is also known for sculptures of 71 heads on the outer part of the sanctuary, which are probably individual portraits of contemporaries Juraj Dalmatinac.

It is unique as can be seen because it is completely built of stone without the use of bonding material.  You can see The Cathedral of St. Jakov in the ninth episode of the fifth season of the popular series Game of Thrones, in which Šibenik portrayed the banking city of Braavos.

At the fortress of St. Ivana filmed a scene of battle pits in the town of ‘Meereen’. At that point, the character of Jorah, defeats numerous fighters, while Daenerys watches the fight from the stands.

Fortress of St. Nicholas

At the entrance to the Channel of St. Ante in Šibenik, is a unique Renaissance building of Venetian fortification construction and an exceptional monument of world architectural heritage. Therefore, the spot we had to include in this one day in Šibenik County!

It was built on the island of Ljuljevac, on the site of the former Benedictine monastery of St. Nicholas. The construction of the fortress according to the project of the Venetian architect Gian Girolamo Sanmichelli began in 1540 after the fall of the city of Skradin under Ottoman rule. The time when the Venetians had to strengthen the defense of Šibenik, its most important strategic port on the eastern Adriatic coast

Beaches of the island of Murter – the best finish for your perfect One day in Šibenik County

The island of Murter, whose highest peak is only 125 meters above sea level, is an island located near Šibenik and which is connected to the mainland by a bridge. Therefore it is a great choice for your trip. Murter can be considered a kind of entrance to the famous Kornati National Park. It is a group of islands that look like pearls sprinkled in the sea that take the breath away of every visitor.

Slightly more than five thousand inhabitants today are mostly engaged in tourism, but they have not forgotten their fishing tradition and olive growing and agriculture. Beyond its beauty, stays its power.

If you like to visit the sights of the destination – Fortress Tureta is an unavoidable building that will knock you off your feet. This time-defying edifice was built by Emperor Justinian around the 6th century, at a time when the Adriatic had once again become an important traffic area. It’s supposed to have had a military function.

It is time for the best part of Your Perfect One day in Šibenik County! The beaches!

Beach Slanica is the most popular here. Best for families, offering all different activities for a long sunny day. Beach Cigrada is a pebble beach. It is famous for its clear water and beautiful surroundings. In one day you can visit both of them.

Primošten Town – Gem of this One day Trip

Primosten is often called the “city of beaches”, because of the abundance of its beaches and bathing areas.

Raduča Mala Beach is the largest beach in Primošten. It is located right in the city promenade. It is surrounded by various cafes, restaurants, and taverns, where everyone can look for a break from a day, spent sunbathing and swimming. It’s a very good idea to rent deck chairs and umbrellas, as well as pedal boats and motorboats.

The viewpoint of Our Lady of Loreto is a place to see. Lady of Loreto is the patroness of Primosten. In May 2017, a 17-meter-high statue of Our Lady located on top of Mount Gaj was unveiled.

This place carries with it the message that Our Lady from this 170-meter high hill actually protects Primosten. In addition to this statue, there is a viewpoint that offers a beautiful panoramic view of Primosten. As well as  Sibenik, the Sibenik archipelago, Rogoznica, Kornati, and the open sea. You can get there by car, but also on foot.

Party time!

Bau Bau Bar is a place by the road, where you can stop to have a swim and a cold cocktail, and stay all day long. It is a very small spot but full of great energy and ambiance – good music, nice beach, and isolation from the crowds. In fact, we recommend stopping!

Here and there, during the fishing festival for tourists, you can enjoy a good atmosphere. At every step, various delicacies stun the nostrils from the grill, and guests are having fun in a real Dalmatian atmosphere with song and wine.

For the most enduring, for whom this is not enough, the possibility of a crazy time you can find in the largest disco in Dalmatia, Aurora, right at the entrance to Primosten. To demonstrate, various world-famous musicians perform here in the summer and it is a real lure for young people from the wider area.

In one day, so much pleasure !
