Sibenik is a medieval town founded by Croats. It successfully resisted the invaders. Especially the Ottoman Empire. Thanks to its walls and fortress, in 2017 it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The most valuable building in Šibenik is the Cathedral of St. Jakuba. It was built in the years 1433–1555 and represents the most valuable Gothic-Renaissance building in all of Croatia. Today, this cathedral is a popular place for fans of the Game of Thrones saga. 13 km from Šibenik is a popular place, the Krka National Park.

City of red roofs

The city is very large and this is a classic view of it. More than 30,000 people live here.

Melting alleys

The more I get to know Dalmatia, the more I like the secrets of the alleys.

Cathedral of St. Jakub as the Iron Bank

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

Baron Fortress

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.
