Historical guided tour

2 hour

Sibenik’s narrow winding streets, stony houses, numerous staircases and the remains of the city walls give it a romantic Mediterranean atmosphere. The St Jacob’s Cathedral is the most famous building in Sibenik. It was built over a century, and is a testimony to the determination, sacrifice and belief of the generations of the inhabitants of Sibenik.

It is a unique piece not only of Croatian architecture, but the European as well. It is made entirely of stone, no other material was used. It is unique in its brave structure of stone slabs and ribs, with no binding material; it is also unique among renaissance churches in its trefoil front facade. Finally, it is unique for the harmony of its architecture.
