Šibenik Plus is the proud winner of The Golden Embroidery recognition, awarded to the best tourist agency in Šibenik-Knin region

 


Truth or dare?! Take a walk around Šibenik in search of at least one person who hasn't been involved in any program of the International Children's Festival once their life no matter how old they are. In short, it might take more time than you think! Why is that so? Simply because the citizens of Šibenik coexist with the Festival for more than half a century. 61 years, to be exact.

    

Established in 1958, the International Children's Festival soon became part of everyday life of Šibenik residents as well as their guests for two summer weeks, the last week in June and the first week in July.  ICF celebrates children's creativity and imagination, it makes Šibenik the centre of children's world. It turns the Old Town into a huge playground interesting for children from all over the world who can express themselves in any art form they like, whether they prefer drama, film, painting, music or literature. That's why ICF rightfully stands for numerous workshops, performances, puppet shows, on outdoor and indoor stages.

ICF, supported by UNICEF, consists of musicians, filmmakers, theatre actors and other artists from all over the world giving their best to make another unforgettable annual program, to give children a reason to believe in magic, in art… 

This year's edition begins on June 19th with the opening ceremony at a well-known summer stage in front of the Cathedral of St. Jacob and Town Hall followed by fireworks. For two weeks children will be able to choose between more than thirty workshops, theatre plays by ensembles from Croatia (Zagreb, Rijeka, Zadar, Split…) and guests from all around world. There will be programs on the streets and squares, as well as a 'Night program' usually reserved for parents. 

International Children Festival will take place until July 3th, so you’ll have plenty of time to discover why this festival makes you feel like a child again. Check it out! 

Tickets for programs on the summer stage and in the theatre will be available at the box office in the Croatian National Theatre in Šibenik and on the Internet site https://www.mdf-sibenik.com/.

There are no reservations for tickets. The box office is open from 10 am to 12 am, and from 6 pm – 8 pm. The price for performances in the theatre is 25 HRK and for the summer stage 20 HRK.

 

Today tourists are in search of “the last uncovered destination.”

This is a huge advantage of Croatia and Croatian part of Mediterranean on the travellers map. But when you have different cultures in one place, effects are unavoidable. It is therefore very important that every interaction with local population, untouched nature and cultural heritage shows understanding and respect for cultural differences and does not affect places of visit. 

Travellers of our time want to be responsible and informed on their travels and companies have been increasing efforts to contribute to development of responsible and sustainable tourism.

Šibenik Plus is actively involved in this area of tourism. From the founding idea, to our overall work, our motive is to promote , to create a nice relationship between tourists and locals and to preserve, and where possible, to enhance the beauty of nature and cultural heritage. 

"In the end, we will conserve only what we love. We love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught." Baba Dioum, Senegalese Poet

If you are a mathematical type, numbers will help you to understand how magnificent this area really is. Šibenik region - situated on the central part of Croatian Adriatic, in the heart of Dalmatia.

Šibenik County is an area with 2 National parks, 14 medieval fortresses, 230 cultural monuments, 300 islands and 600 archaeological localities.
Šibenik is on middle Mediterranean and it is a fortress city next to the sea with an imposing St. James Cathedral, build exactly 105 years ago from white stone blocks and without any other binding material to support it.

St. James Cathedral is a combination of unique Gothic and renaissance style with 71 heads surrounding the walls and with sculptures and mosaics in the interior. In the year 2000 it was added to UNESCO protected world heritage localities.


Two national parks – National park Krka (Krka waterfalls) and National park Kornati, natural parks Lake Vranja and South Velebit; cities and little towns that have become the most wanted Mediterranean tourist destinations: Skradin, Vodice, Primošten, Rogoznica, Tribunj, Murter

Small islands and Dalmatian villages living the Mediterranean as it once was: Prvić, Zlarin, Krapanj, Kaprije, Žirje

Picturesqueness of these Dalmatian islands, tradition that locals are still nourishing, tiny hidden beaches and caves, beautiful coast and the clearest sea in the world will leave you breathless…and will enrich your soul.

Then you will truly know why Šibenik has been pronounced to be the most beautiful nautical Adriatic destination and one of the 5 most beautiful rocky cities of Mediterranean. Šibenik tourism is growing rapidly and Šibenik tourists every year are coming in larger number.

Don't miss to be one of them!

Italy’s La Repubblica brings an article in its travel column entitled “Beach life in the city center”, where, alongside world-famous tourist destinations such as Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Florence, Graz, London, Paris, Prague and Zurich, they list Sibenik as a must-see tourist attraction, in particular thanks to its newly built city beach. 

Sibenik earned its place in the list among these other prestigious cities primarily due to its Banj Beach, just five minutes away from the old city center where “apart from a nice swim in the clean sea, you can also enjoy a magnificent view of the UNESCO-protected St. Jacob’s Cathedral.

According to La Repubblica, this is “a unique cathedral in Europe, made exclusively out of stone and without any materials that would bind the construction, such as cement or wood.” The news website adds that at nightfall, the beach “turns into a stage for concerts and night swimming.”
