Holiday highlights

St. Michael’s Fortress, Sibenik

Due to its immense height, the tower is visible from everywhere in the town. Erected among the buildings of the old town, 70 meters above sea level, the fortress was ruined and rebuilt several times until the beginning of the 15thcentury.  Today it stands proud in white dressed stone and is the location for many music and cultural events. 

The National Park Krka

Declared a national park in 1985, this is one of seven National parks in Croatia, and is named after the river that runs through all 35,000 acres. Visitors can choose to take a boat ride through the park and enjoy the breathtaking views on spectacle waterfalls. The park is a few kilometres northeast of Sibenik and can be visited independently on one of the leisure days.

Diocletian’s Palace, Split

Located in the Old Town and dating back to the 3rd century, these Roman ruins could be considered a town in itself. Measuring around 30,000 square metres and home to over 3,000 people the Palace is the heart of Split with many shops, restaurants, bars, narrow cobbled streets, impressive arches and stone columns for visitors to explore.
