We arrived by bus to Sibenik from Trogir in August 2012. From Trogir we paid 36 Kuna to Sibenik. You will find the Sibenik bus station a short walk from the old town. It is situated right by the bay.
The bus station has public pay toilets, snack bars and a ticket office. Across the road close by there is also a "DM" shop. This is a German chain shop that sells mostly toiletteries, hygiene products etc.
We also took a bus from Sibenik to Skradin at 10:30 which cost 25 Kuna. From Skradin you can visit the Krka National Park.
We left Sibenik by bus to Zadar at 9.45 am and paid 53 Kuna for the ride.
As usual, there are no places to be usually found on the street, and if you do, they have zones to charge for the time. Some limit to 2 hours maximum. We ended u parking over by the bus station, and that is a place that they direct you to once you get off the highway and head for the city. So it seems to be the best place to park, and be safe.
Most parking is $6-8 kuna range. WE paid 7 kuna an hour, of about $1.25 for the main lot down below the market area, as another benchmark beside the bus station; both are on the south end There are a lot of places along the Riva that are restricted to local parking, and have blockades up. Be careful.

Sibenik is well connected to many european citys. The connections to Germany are the most frequent with 6-8 busses going daily.
At 11:30 the busses will enter the station and some panic will occur as there are no fixed platforms for the different lines.
The price of a one way ticket to München is 380 kn. and baggage storage will cost you an additional 15 kn per piece.
Tickets for the international connections can be bought at the ticketoffice inside the station.
From the large Solaris Resort there is a special bus to and from Sibenik. It only stops once in the city and two places at the resort. Its only avaible for people staying or working at Solaris.
The price for a trip is 9 kn.
Almost all north-south intercity lines in Croatia stop in Sibenik, so its no problem to catch a bus.
However prices differ a lot between the different bus companys and a little background check will save you some money.
Generally though the buslines along the coast (Dubrovnik-Spilt-Zadar-Rijeka) will be more expensive than busses going to Zagrab.
When going to the Krka national park from Sibenik you will need to take the local bus the goes to/though Skradin.
The bus costs 15 kn. and the ride takes about 30 min. From the stop in Skradin you will find signs to the boat to the National park.
Try to check the return times at the informationcounter at the busstation in Sibenik, as there are only 6 busses a day.
Getting to-around-away from Sibenik is done best by bus. The busstation is located just outside the old town. The local busses hold at one side of the station and the intercity lines and international lines depart form the other side (the main area).
Tickets for local and intercity busses can be bought in the busses and on the station.
Tickets for international lines should be bought at the station and preferrably some time in advance as the busses can be full.
Thousands of yacht owners from all over the worls are regularly visiting area of Šibenik during the whole year. There are not too many destinations on earth with two national parks so close to each other.
National Park of Kornati consists of approx. 200 small islands, great many of them totaly isolated. It is a real paradise on earth for yachting.
There are couple of small islands and islets right in front of Šibenik, and in the close vicinity there is the National Park of Kornati with over 200 islands. The small boat is required to visit all of them, especially to those who are searchin for secluded beaches. The whole area around the town of Šibenik is nature protected zone and the sea-water is crystal clear.
One of the possible ways to get there is by sailing ship, for those lucky persons who have oportunity to sail around the world.. :-))
Sibenik is very crowded during summer time, so it's sometimes difficult to find a parking place in the center of town..
The best mean of transportation to reach this part of Dalmatia is a bus. Or you can just sail there :-)
If you don't have a car on your own, you can take local buses or boats for excursions to the islands.
If you, on the other hand like to cycle, you don't need anything else.
