    Poljana (Tito's old square)

    by solopes Updated Dec 17, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Exiting the old town we arrive at this large and modern square, without any shock. A small garden beside it and a flea market help to integrate everything in an acceptable harmony.

    This reminded me that we spent a week in historic Croatia, but didn't see much of "modern Croatia". Or did we?

    St Jakov cathedral

    by solopes Updated Dec 17, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm not an expert in architecture nor history, so, don't ask me why did this cathedral deserve to become UNESCO heritage, as it did in 2000. I saw Gothic elements with Renaissance ones as in many other churches around.

    I read that the combination of both styles is particularly well succeeded here.

    OK. That's it, nice, but it didn't impress me that much!

    Old Town

    by solopes Updated Dec 17, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's easy to explore the old town, with two main streets housing all the interesting locations.

    Commerce is well integrated, with discretion, but always allowing a varied look, with the narrow streets easing the walk under their shades.

    St. Ivan Church

    by shavy Updated Aug 24, 2014

    Walk through the narrow streets we came to this church. We have the view of the tower from the distance. The tower looks very nice and neat, apparently the rest of the monument is not so impressive as the rest of it. The reliefs represent the masterpieces of Dalmatian medieval sculpture. A big stone dial of the first mechanic public clock in Sibenik was built in the upper part of the west wall of the bell tower

    The Canal

    by solopes Updated Dec 12, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sibenik stands at the end of a long canal, well protected by several ancient fortress.

    Approaching from the sea has that additional revelation, with the boat slowly turning left and right as the town unfolds before it.

    We don't even notice that the approach takes more than half an hour!
