This morning meet your guide and driver at the port for a full day exploration of the Krka Waterfalls national park and the town of Sibenik.
For thousands of years the Krka River has obstinately hollowed out its path through rock and has created the remarkable waterfalls. The beauty and diversity of this river resembles a magnificent orchestral symphony under the direction of the Creator himself. In the year 1985 its remarkable beauty was recognized and placed under protection proclaiming the national park. The area of the national park also preserves many cultural and historical monuments, but the most interesting for the visitors is the ethno village that has preserved the old crafts and way of life.
After this relaxing tour, your guide and driver will take you for a short ride to Šibenik, a mediaeval town with the famous Cathedral of St. Jacob. The town was initially created as a castrum, a fortification beneath the St. Michael’s Fortress that still dominates the town. A view of Šibenik reveals the unique harmony of urban poetics of the town and its natural surroundings. The walk through town with your guide will unveil the beauty of Šibenik and its landmarks. The most famous monument is by all means the St. Jacob’s Cathedral, a Gothic-Renaissance masterpiece that has earned its place in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Built for over a century, it is harmonious in architecture and sculpture – with a row of 71 realistic sculptural portraits around the apses. It is entirely built of stone, no other material was being used, which is unique not only in the Croatian architecture, but in the European as well.
After the tour, your guide and driver will take you back to the port of Split.
