Krpanj is the smallest, lowest and most inhabited island in the Mediterranean with an area of 0.36 square kilometres and an average altitude of 1.5 metres. It is known for its tradition of harvesting and processing sponges and is 300 metres from the nearest land, where the village of Brodarica is located.
Located 15 kilometres from Šibenik, Skradin is a romantic Mediterranean town with narrow cobbled streets, passages, arches and stairs and is located at the entrance to Krka National Park. Its history dates back two thousand years, accounting for the notable archaeological sites in the local vicinity. The entire town of Skradin is a protected cultural heritage monument.
St Jacob’s Cathedral in Šibenik
This unique example of European sacred architecture has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Adorned with a frieze of 72 heads carved in stone, it is Croatia’s most significant architectural creation of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
Knin Fortress on Mount Spas
This military fortress was shaped by the early Croatian cultural heritage in the ninth century and is found on the southern side of Mount Spas, which dominates Knin and its surroundings and offers breathtaking views on all sides.
Krka National Park
With its seven travertine waterfalls at a total height of 242 metres and the Skradinski Buk, the largest travertine barrier in Europe, the Krka National Park is a natural and karstic phenomenon. The island of Visovac with its Franciscan church and monastery is also worth visiting.
