The medieval coastal city of Sibenek has been built predominantly with stone, and with most of the streets in the centre being too narrow for cars, it’s a perfect place to wander around and explore quaint little streets and charming squares. Here you will find plenty of small cafés and shops that enhance the feeling of having travelled back in time. A place of strategic importance, the city boasts four different fortresses, all built between the 15th and 17thcentury.
