Sibenik is a town which successfully combines famous history and natural beauties.
Do you know that the inventor of the parachute, Faust Vrancic, was born in Sibenik? Unique because of its fortresses and towers such as Sv. Mihovil [St. Mihovil], Sv. Nikola [St. Nicholas], Sv. Ivan [St. John] and Subicevac, Sibenik 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 Sibenik, 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. Arhandjela [St. Archangel] and the Franciscan monastery on the island of Visovac with a rich treasury of art, books and a variety of other valuables.
