Šibenik

Full description

Sibenik is placed in the central part of the Croatian Adriatic Coast, in the picturesque bay where the Krka River, one of the most beautiful karst rivers in Croatia, enters the sea. This oldest native Croatian city on the Adriatic, is located in the most protected natural harbour, in the centre of the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea, probably in the place where some of the original Croatian settlers first saw the blue sea. Its narrow winding streets, stony houses, many staircases and the remains of the city walls give Sibenik that romantic Mediterranean atmosphere. The St. Jacob’s Cathedral in Sibenik is the most famous building in Sibenik. It was constructed over a period of a century, and is testimony to the determination, sacrifice and belief of the generations of inhabitants of Sibenik. By many things it is unique not only in Croatian architecture, but in European architecture as well. It is entirely built of stone, no other material was used. It is unique in its brave structure of stone slabs and ribs, with no binding material; it is also unique among renaissance churches in its trefoil front facade; finally, it is unique in the harmony of its architecture and the row of 71 realistic sculptural portraits around the apses.
