Sibenik holidays are all about history and architecture, surrounded by crystal-clear bays, lush national parks and distant islands.

Like a fine wine

Medieval architecture and cobbled streets paint a pretty picture in this age-old city on the Dalmatian Coast, and its silver-haired charms don't end there. From its striking stone fortresses to its terracotta-tiled houses, Sibenik's a wonder to behold. And Croatia's famous Krka National Park is only a half-hour drive away.

Chasing waterfalls

Take a 30-minute drive inland to Krka National Park for something truly special. The seven successive waterfalls here cascade in turquoise tiers and can be discovered by boat or on foot. Be sure to bring your swimsuit – visitors are allowed to dive right into the clear pools.

Stacked with sights

Slip on your comfy shoes and take to the streets. There are guided walking tours if you want to squeeze the most out of your surrounds, or simply stroll solo and discover the highlights for yourself, including the Cathedral of St James, St Michael's Fortress and the cobbled old town.
