Where to go

Skradin

Located 15 kilometres from Šibenik, Skradin is a romantic Mediterranean town with narrow cobbled streets, passages, arches and stairs and is located at the entrance to Krka National Park. Its history dates back two thousand years, accounting for the notable archaeological sites in the local vicinity. The entire town of Skradin is a protected cultural heritage monument.

Krapanj – Brodarica

Krpanj is the smallest, lowest and most inhabited island in the Mediterranean with an area of ​​0.36 square kilometres and an average altitude of 1.5 metres. It is known for its tradition of harvesting and processing sponges and is 300 metres from the nearest land, where the village of Brodarica is located.

Kornati National Park

Kornati National Park

Kornati consists of 89 uninhabited islands, islets and rocks in an area of ​​only seventy square kilometres. Due to the dangers of navigating through this maze of rocks, the Kornati feature many old lighthouses and islands such as Blitvenica and Sestrice, which are nowadays a destination for adventure-seeking travellers.

St Jacob’s Cathedral in Šibenik

Krka National Park

With its seven travertine waterfalls at a total height of 242 metres and the Skradinski Buk, the largest travertine barrier in Europe, the Krka National Park is a natural and karstic phenomenon. The island of Visovac with its Franciscan church and monastery is also worth visiting.
