Though from the outside it might seem as an old town, with outdated architecture and a lifestyle which makes people get in bed by 9 o’clock, Sibenik can surprise many yacht charter aficionados who come to visit. On a second look, it turns out to be a more happening place than appearance will allow you to think, one that is suited for a yacht charter Croatia holiday.
Why is it worth it
Being situated on the mouth of the river Krka river where it meets the Adriatic, yacht charter Sibenik can turn out to be an alternative to the more popular and more crowded cities of Split or Dubrovnik. Unlike other parts of Croatia, here you’ll find a lively and youthful atmosphere which suits perfectly the younger yacht charter sailors.
What to see
The city of yacht charter Sibenik happens to have been a very popular place during the Renaissance, and, as a result of that, it has a lot of remaining architecture from that period which impresses the yacht charter visitor. There’s the St. James cathedral, the fortification of the old town, and some other old churches scattered in the neighboring hills. The Krka National park with its seven waterfalls is famous throughout yacht charter Croatia, but you could also sail to the Kornati archipelago from here.
Where to hang out
In case you’re searching for a place to eat, make sure you stop by the Dolac area which is similar to a food court, packed full of different eateries that serve anything from pizza to fresh fish dishes, all washed down with copious amounts of local wine which is famous for its body and aroma.
At night, the city’s narrow streets become alive and crowded although in some places you can’t even lay two tables side by side. But that doesn’t seem to bother the hoards of youthful tourists who come here to enjoy a yacht charter Croatia holiday. As a testament to the local nightlife, yacht charter Sibenik is home to one of the largest entertainment centers in the Adriatic, the Aurora, where 3000 people can party at the same time.
The local annual regatta takes place in December, but that isn’t the only time the town celebrates, there’s also a famous International Children’s Festival in June and the day of the patron saint, St. Michael, which is celebrated by food and music, a real temptation for yacht charter tourists.
