Your tour will start from Split, where you will embark on a leisurely drive to Sibenik, about 1 hour north of Split. What makes Sibenik very special is that unlike the rest of the cities on the coast that were founded by the Illyrians, Greeks, or Romans, this is a true, native, Croatian city founded by this Slavic tribe upon their descent into the area. It has also been the seat of Croatian king Petar Kresimir and its unique position on the mouth of river Krka, boasting as many as 240 reefs and islands in the channel surrounding it, make Sibenik a stunning gem in the heart of Dalmatia.
The most important is the Cathedral of Saint James that is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is a Gothic-Renaissance construction built entirely from stone from the island of Brac. It was built in three phases, by three architects, between 1431 and 1535. Its style started out as Venetian Gothic, but was turned to Renaissance by the two latter architects - Georgius Mathei Dalmaticus and Niccolo' di Giovanni Fiorentino.
Lunch at the renowned Pelegrini Restaurant, next to the Cathedral, located in the 700 year-old Villa Pelegrini-Tambaca will follow. Here you will be treated with a special wine-pairing menu created by the Chef and owner Rudi.
After lunch you will head over to the National Park Krka. Known for its stunning waterfalls and the small island of Visovac with a Franciscan Monastery housing some important manuscripts and rare books. Bring a swimsuit as you can take a dip right under the biggest waterfall in the park - 'Skradinski Buk' before you head back to Split.
