Intro Sibenik stands in central Dalmatia, at the point where the river Krka flows into the beautiful Adriatic. While the river flows ever onwards through time to fill the bluest sea, in some ways Sibenik seems to stand still - its beautiful historic buildings giving an amazing sense that time is not passing. It is almost easy to feel as though you are in the Middle Ages, especially when Sibenik is in party mode, and the streets of the old town erupt in a joyous festival of Mediaeval-style celebration and fill with entertainment, music, laughter and artistry. Places to visit If you are interested in history and culture then Sibenik is the place to come! The St. James Cathedral stands as a beautiful testament to the skill and artistry of generations long gone, and all around you can see the work of skillful hands. From ecclesiastical architecture, to the four fortresses, to all the city's traditional Dalmatian accommodation, Sibenik is a place of history and solidity and beauty. St. Nicholas' Fortress seems to guard the ancient harbour against encroaching modernity, letting through only that which is right and good and keeping out that which is not true to the spirit of the city. History of Sibenik In Sibenik, history is a living, breathing thing. It is something that is claimed, owned and kept alive by yearly festivals and by skilled craftsmen who learn the skills of their forefathers and keep the historic buildings in good repair.
