Private Sibenik Sightseeing Tour

1. Private Sibenik Sightseeing Tour

This oldest native Croatian city on the Adriatic is located in the most protected natural harbor in the center of the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. This is probably in the same place where some of the original Croatian settlers first saw the blue sea. Sibenik's narrow winding streets, stony houses, many staircases and the remains of the city walls give it a romantic Mediterranean atmosphere. St. Jacob's Cathedral is the most famous building in Sibenik. It was constructed over a period of a century, and is testimony to the determination, sacrifice and belief of the generations of inhabitants of Sibenik. It is unique not only in Croatian architecture, but in European architecture as well. It is entirely built 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 in the harmony of its architecture.

We enjoyed the tour very much. Veronika was great. She told us a lot of details and spoke very good German. She even understood our dialect very well. All questions were answered and at the end we got tips for the rest of the day. Thanks a lot for this!

I highly recommend this tour. Mrs. Irena talks enthusiastically and happily about her city. She drew our attention to details that we would never have noticed. We really enjoyed every minute of this tour.
