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.”
