ibenik is definitely one of the prettiest gems of the Dalmatian coast. While other Dalmatian cities, such as Split and Zadar, date back to ancient times, the stone that was used to build Šibenik was placed by hardworking Croatian hands. Every stone street, building, and palace tells a story of history, culture, and tradition of one of the strongest Croatian cities in the past that resisted all the attacks from the Ottomans, but was destroyed by the plague like no other city before then. The old city center full of picturesque houses, palaces, squares, and archways will also tell you about that. City Hall, and the Duke's and Bishop's palace are amongst the most beautiful examples of Renaissance Šibenik, and it's also not a bad idea to take a walk through Trg Četiri bunara - an interesting complex of 15th century water reservoir, where various exhibitions are often held today.
