Sightseeing:

Sibenik is famous for its Cathedral of Saint Jakov, a three-aisled basilica with three apses and a cupola 32 meters in height. Construction of the cathedral was begun in the Venetian Gothic style, but was completed in the Toscana Renaissance style. More than 15 decades ensued from the time the decision was made to commence construction, from 1402 up to its final consecration in 1555.

Tours Excursions Transportation:

Everywhere in the city is within walking distance.

Nearby Places:

Take a swim! Beaches around Šibenik (Solaris, Žaboric, Grebaštica, Brodarica, Jadrija, Srima...) are extremely clean and fun (although sea in Šibenik bay itself isn't very clean). You must try the beach game of picigin, an invention of nearby city of Split's youth. All you need is shallow, sandy or not so stony beach, small ball and company. The aim is to hold a ball as much as you can up in the air, and you're allowed to use all body parts.

Shopping and Food:

Walk through Kalelarga (officialy King Tomislav's street) and visit its shops, squares and cafes.

Currency:

1 Euro = 7.50 Kuna.

Bear in mind that the Croatian kuna is not exchangeable outside Croatia so you'll either have to change it back into your home currency in Croatia or do some last minute shopping.

If you come to Croatia equipped with euros you can pay for most excursions and car rentals and nearly all shops in euros without getting ripped off on an exchange rate as most of these items are priced in euros anyway.
