Review: D-Resort Šibenik, Croatia


Book A Stay

Šibenik is the oldest Croatian city on the Adriatic coast. First mentioned in 1066, it offers the safest natural harbor in the Adriatic. The town of Šibenik, which grew around this unique harbor, is known for its medieval town with high stone houses, winding cobbled streets, numerous staircases, archways, churches, and monasteries St. James cathedral, which is part of the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage.

Three fortresses surround Šibenik. The Fortress of St. Nicholas is the most important renaissance fortification on the Eastern Adriatic coast. It stands in the St. Anthony Channel, which connects Šibenik harbor with the open sea. Besides its rich history, Šibenik is close to two national parks just 30 minutes away. Šibenik is also home to one of Croatia’s spectacular Krka Waterfalls, beautiful lakes with excellent fishing, and the town’s cathedral, dating back to 1434, which remains one of the marvels of the Dalmatian Coast today.
