Best Sibenik Hotels
Sibenik HotelsWith its terracotta-roofed houses, and winding medieval alleyways, Sibenik’s magical Old Town is a place to lose yourself below flower-knotted balconies, and stone walls encrusted with tiny seashells. The Venetians, French, Austro-Hungarians, and the Yugoslavians have all left their imprint on Sibenik over the years, and the city's historical highlight is undoubtedly the domed St James Cathedral, which is perhaps Croatia's most spectacular Renaissance wonder. Bathed in the Dalmatian coast’s envied mild winters and hot summers - and close to beautiful stretches of sandy beach, and sprawling national parks - Sibenik is one of Croatia’s best kept secrets. Things to seeTo encounter Sibenik at its most peaceful, take a relaxing stroll through St. Laurence’s Garden, where plump pomegranates hang from the trees. The perfumes of dill, sage and basil will swirl around you in the monastery garden, which hums gently as bees dance between its glowing flowers. It’s not always been so peaceful here, however, and Sibenik’s struggle for independence has left behind some amazing crumbling fortresses, which sit high above the city, watching out over the waves warily. The Fortress of St. Michael gives you spectacular views of the sea of orange roofs below, as well as the Krka River, which bursts from the gorges of Krka National Park. Visit the national park to track down the roaring torrent that is Cascate Krka - a huge, multi-tiered waterfall. On a sunny day, there’s no better way to cool off than by swimming in the emerald pool at its base, feeling the waterfall’s misty spray on your face. Back in the city, throw your map away, and lose your bearings in Sibenik old quarter’s labyrinth of ancient alleyways, medieval churches, and old stone houses. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of St James Cathedral rises dramatically from the quaint streets, and you’ll be welcomed through its magnificent arched entrance by painstakingly-detailed carvings of the apostles.Hotels in

The attractive hotels in Sibenik offer everything you could need, whether you want to self cater in a peaceful home-from-home, or simply need a base where you can dump your bags, before heading out to explore this vibrant city. Where to staySibenik has a small, but stylish, collection of hotels located in the town itself, and these are perfect if you want to tuck into the local restaurants. You’ll taste crisp, olive oil drizzled salads, and Dalmatian food like red wine soaked Pašticada beef, before stumbling back to your hotel in a happy haze. The beachside town of Solaris – just a few miles from Sibenik, is another great option, letting you enjoy hotels that back onto soft boomerangs of golden sand. Share a sweet grappa liqueur on your hotel’s terrace, or paddle in the fizzing waves, while taking an evening stroll in the last of the sun’s rays.How to get to SibenikSibenik sits between Zadar to the north and Split to the south - and you can fly into either city from a variety of European destinations.
