Šibenik is known for its fortifications, from which visitors can enjoy a beautiful view out across the islands. Šibenik is a city you have to experience for yourself to feel the echoes of a rich and glorious past.

Trogir

Trogir is more of a palace than a city. Many poets have attempted to eulogize over their fascination with the historical city of Trogir.

Stone houses, lovingly built, exude a deep calm in a symphony of contrasting light and shadow that changes not just each day, but almost every hour. Visitors from all over the world are enticed into the intricate web of side streets and market squares, some of which seem completely abandoned whereas others bustle with activity. It’s little wonder that Trogir was declared a city of world cultural heritage in 1998.

Split

Split is a UNESCO-protected city. This eternally-young city with approximately 300,000 residents in the surrounding area has a warm Mediterranean atmosphere, and has existed with its distinctive urban rhythm for 1700 years. It boasts a wealth of cultural and historical landmarks, with one of the best examples being the world famous Diocletian’s palace. The palace is the most important example of Roman architecture on the eastern Adriatic coast. It was built around 300 AD, with a floor plan in the shape of an irregular quadrangle. The Pristil is the name of the central open space in the palace. Split’s mild climate, a result of 2700 hours of sunshine per year, makes it an oasis even in mid-winter, where you can enjoy the sun on the harbour front.
