The Mediterranean as it once was

Dalmatia - Šibenik

Do you know that the inventor of the parachute, Faust Vrančić, was born in Šibenik? Unique because of its fortresses and towers such as Sv. Mihovil [St. Mihovil], Sv. Nikola  [St. Nicholas], Sv. Ivan [St. John] and Šubićevac, Šibenik is most famous for the cathedral of Sv. Jakov [St. Jacob] that was built in the 15th century. Constructed by the masterful hands of Juraj Dalmatinac and Nikola Firentinac, and because of its original architecture of large stone slabs, this cathedral was entered on the UNESCO list of world heritage and voted at the same time to be most beautiful sacral building in Croatia. Not far from Šibenik, hidden between two of the most beautiful waterfalls of the river Krka, there are two buildings that are almost as famous: the orthodox monastery of Sv. Arhanđela [St. Archangel] and the Franciscan monastery on the island of Visovac with a rich treasury of art, books and a variety of other valuables.
