It is the most valuable Gothic-Renaissance building in all of Croatia. In the series, Šibenik represented the city of Braavos, where the Iron Bank is also based, which guards the deposits of people from other cities. This place is so much visited
Fortress of St. Michala
It is located in the center of Sibenik. This castle is the dominant feature of the city. It is one of three fortresses.
It can be seen from every side of Šibenik. It is a relatively young fortress from the 17th century, which has two parts and thus forms two fortresses out of three. They were built before the campaign of the Ottoman Empire, because the fortress of St. Michal would not resist pressure for a long time. These fortresses then stopped the Ottoman campaign.
