Many of Šibenik’s beautiful smaller churches are only open around Mass times.


Apart from a couple of hostels, there’s very little accommodation actually in Šibenik, so you might consider basing yourself along the coast and heading to town on day trips. Tribunj, Vodice, Primošten and Rogoznica are all good options. Contact travel agencies for private digs.


There’s a popular strip of restaurants along the harbour front with great views, but for better dining head into the old town.

Drinking & Nightlife

The hot months bring the beautiful people out into the streets of Šibenik, with many cafes and bars setting up terraces along the waterfront and a few clubs opening for business. The rest of the year things are relatively quiet.
