Discover Šibenik region

Sibenik lies almost in the middle of the Croatian Adriatic Coast, in the picturesque and indented bay around the mouth of the river Krka, one of the most beautiful Karst rivers in Croatia.

Today Sibenik is the administrative, political, economic, social and cultural center of a county which stretches along the 100 kilometer long belt between the Zadar and Split Rivieras, reaching up to 45 kilometers deep into the hinterland.

The Sibenik region covers about 1,000 square kilometers and is composed of an island and a coastal region, and its hinterland. The county of Sibenik has 242 islands, islets and rocks. Most of this archipelago lies in the north-west part of Sibenik's waters and is very indented, bare and sparsely inhabited.

The county of Sibenik has only 10 island settlements. The most numerous group of islands are the Kornati, widely known for their bizarre shapes and luxurious and magnificent landscapes. From Sibenik bay the open sea and the islands are reached through a narrow winding channel about 10 kilometers long and 300 - 1200 meters wide. More than enough reasons that makes Šibenik yacht charter a perfect summer holiday option.

A view of Sibenik reveals the unique harmony of urban poetics of the town and its natural surroundings.

The harbor, connected with the open sea by the St. Anthony Strait, has been the initiator of development of sailing, trading and the overall economic prosperity of the town for centuries. At the entrance into the straight, there is the fortress of St. Nicholas, the most important renaissance fortress at the eastern coast of the Adriatic.

The town is surrounded by the fortresses of St. John, St. Michael and Subicevac that, together with the fortress of St. Nicholas, make the symbol of the centuries long no subjugation of Sibenik, confirmed in the recent Fatherland War. The St. Jacob’s, the cathedral of Sibenik, built for over a century, is a testimony of persistency, sacrifice and belief of the generations of inhabitants of Sibenik. By many things it is unique not only in the Croatian architecture, but in the European as well: it is entirely built of stone, no other material being used; it is unique by the brave structure of stone slabs and ribs, with no binding material; it is also unique among renaissance churches by its trefoil front facade; finally, it is unique by the harmony of its architecture and the row of 71 realistic sculptural portraits around the apses.

Last week we rented the Sportski Vuk (Grand Soleil 37R). I would like to share that we really enjoyed sailing the boat.
The boat was in a good condition and the service of the crew was great. Kike responded very promptly on our questions while sailing.

See you again!
