What makes Sibenik very special is that unlike the rest of the cities on the coast that were founded by the Illyrians, Greeks, or Romans, this is a true, native, Croatian city founded by a Slavic tribe upon their descent into the area. Sibenik was also the seat of Croatian King Petar Kresimir and its strategic position at the mouth of the river Krka, boasting as many as 240 reefs and islands in the surrounding channel, make it a stunning gem in the heart of Dalmatia.
St. Jacob's Cathedral is the most important architectural monument of the Renaissance in Croatia, and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Next to the cathedral you will visit small artisan's workshops scattered throughout the Old Town of Sibenik: painters, sculptors and designers. Another spectacular landmark is located on the side of the Old Town facing the sea: St. Nicholas' Fortress, built by the Venetians in the 16th century to ward off a Turkish invasion.
The final delicacy is lunch at Pelegrini Restaurant, a gourmet wine-pairing package created by Chef Rudi, one of the best Croatian chefs working today. This six-course menu accompanied by the best Dalmatian wines is a reinterpretation of traditional Dalmatian cuisine, but with a twist, as they say in the restaurant.
