  • From Split or Trogir: Krka National Park with Entry Ticket

    2. From Split or Trogir: Krka National Park with Entry Ticket

    Begin your day with a drive that takes you between the Dalmatian coast and the hinterland, as you enjoy views of Trogir, Split, and the surrounding landscape that features abundant greenery and picturesque villages. On this full-day excursion your first stop will be in Šibenik to see the sights of the town, including the UNESCO-protected St. Jacob’s Cathedral. As you continue the drive you’ll have great views of the coast and offshore islands, and hear from your guide about the history of the area. The next stop is in Krka National Park, at the Krka waterfalls. Walk along the wooden paths through the park’s stunning scenery, hear the singing of rare birds, and see water mills that have been in action for centuries. See the magnificent Skradinski buk, the biggest waterfall in the park, and one of the most beautiful cliff waterfall in Europe.

    The tour was really nice, it is a good option to go to Krka if you don't have a car. It is a plus that you stop in Sibenik on the way (maybe it would be nice to have some more time there?) and then you go swimming in Primosten. The price is ok, taking into consideration that the entrance to Krka is 200 kunas. The guide Nina was funny and professional. Thanks!

    The tour with Ivan was great. He picked us up at our hotel with a brand new Mercedes at 9:00 (we asked for that time) and took us to the park. The park was beautiful and since it was November it was almost empty which was great. Ivan took us on a small walking tour inside the park and then he gave us some time so we can enjoy it ourselves which was actually a nice touch. On the way back we stopped at Trogir where he took us on a tour as well. It was an amazing tour. Thank you.

  • Private Sibenik Sightseeing Tour

    10. Private Sibenik Sightseeing Tour

    This oldest native Croatian city on the Adriatic is located in the most protected natural harbor in the center of the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. This is probably in the same place where some of the original Croatian settlers first saw the blue sea. Sibenik's narrow winding streets, stony houses, many staircases and the remains of the city walls give it a romantic Mediterranean atmosphere. St. Jacob's Cathedral is the most famous building in Sibenik. It was constructed over a period of a century, and is testimony to the determination, sacrifice and belief of the generations of inhabitants of Sibenik. It is unique not only in Croatian architecture, but in European architecture as well. It is entirely built of stone, no other material was used.
