Sibenik

Sibenik, the oldest Croatian city on the coast, sits as a naturally protected harbor. Though not as popular as Dubrovnik or Split, Sibenik shares the same historical atmosphere of these cities, just with fewer crowds. Another aspect that sets it apart from its neighbors is that Croats, not Italians or Greeks, founded Sibenik, making it relatively young. Here, antique shops line cobbled streets and small squares host lively locals and travelers. Though the city is most well-known for its cathedral, it also is home to several fortresses and offers a fine array of boutique stores, cafes, and restaurants. Add Sibenik and other destinations in Croatia to your travel itinerary using our Croatia family vacation planner.

Where to stay in Sibenik

Unlike most Croatian towns, Sibenik offers few private accommodations, with most of its rooms in large resorts well outside the city. Sibenik's few hostels provide simple but comfortable lodgings near major attractions, but most travelers end up basing themselves somewhere along the coastline and exploring the city on day trips. Get the most out of your visit by staying in one of the nearby villages, which provide quick access to the city and some of the finest beaches on the Adriatic's eastern shore.
