Exploring Sibenik. Today, we are heading towards Sibenik. Unlike other cities along the Adriatic coast, which were established by Greeks, Illyrians and Romans, Sibenik was founded by Croats. Excavations of the castle of St. Michael, have since proven that the place was inhabited long before the actual arrival of the Croats. It was mentioned for the first time under its present name in 1066 in a Charter of the Croatian King Petar Kresimir IV and, for a period of time, it was a seat of this Croatian King. For that reason, Sibenik is also called Kresimirov grad / Kresimir's city. Besides its history, Sibenik is known as a gateway to the Kornati Islands. As you walk through the streets of Sibenik, your guide will introduce you to some of its monuments such as: Cathedral of St. James, the Sibenik City Museum, St. Michael’s Fortress with its open-air theater and views of Sibenik Bay and neighboring islands.

Sail from Sibenik towards the Kornati archipelago.
Visit to Kornat island. The Kornat Islands are the densest archipelago in the Mediterranean. Nowhere else in this large sea is such a great number of islands crammed in so little space. Because of ambiguous criteria of the definition of an island in general, there is no general agreement about their number. But we think that we shall not err much if we determine their number at 150. The area pf the sea in which they are located is about 320 square kilometers. Part of the archipelago, roughly two thirds of the land and the sea, is a national park today. After the creation of the national park in 1980, many scholarly investigations have taken place there, particularly those as refer to the natural heritage. Up to the present, they have identified 537 species of invertebrates, 160 species of fishes, one tortoise and three species of mammals, one of which - the monk seal - is probably extinct.
We will continue our scenic sail towards Dugi Otok.
Lunch in a local restaurant in Dugi Otok.
Telascica Nature Park. Our adventure continues by exploring Telascica by bikes.
The best way to relax after the adrenaline rush is to take a swim in a crystal-clear water and soak the sun!
Lovely farewell dinner in one of the local restaurants in Kornati will conclude this beautiful and exciting day.
Overnight in Kornati.
Zadar Walking Tour. Discover the Medieval treasures of Zadar during this memorable guided stroll through the city's Old Town. The city walls of Zadar attest to its long history of warding off would-be conquerors and rulers, including the Venetians and the Turks. Upon entering the heart of the Old Town, explore the highlights of this magnificent city.
Your first stop is a visit to the Cathedral of St. Anastasia, the finest example of Romanesque architecture in Zadar.
