Welcome to Šibenik, the Adriatic city you’ve probably never heard of, which combines the charms of newly-cool Zadar with the more classic allure of Dubrovnik and Split, minus the crowds.
Behind it lie rolling vineyards and olive groves, lush forests and canyons through which twines a river of awe-inspiring waterfalls and serene lakes. Before it stretches the Adriatic, speckled with tiny islands of rugged, untouched beauty, each with its own set of aquamarine coves and inlets to discover.
Within it, you’ll find a charming old town with Unesco-listed cathedral, and to either side, long stretches of beach with sleepy coastal resorts that transform in summer with buzzing bars, catch-of-the-day restaurants, and stellar music festivals.
