DESTINATIONS SIBENIK | CROATIA & THE BALKANS


Franje Tudmana towards its northern end. Here there’s a collection of waterside bars and terraces, which make a chilled-out place for a Croatian beer or a cocktail.


20.00: There are only five Michelin- starred restaurants in Croatia – and one of them happens to be in Sibenik. In a prime spot by the cathedral is Pelegrini, which does exquisite things with local ingredients, while keeping the essence of Croatia. Afterwards, enjoy a nightcap at Azimut, which has an outdoor terrace by the cathedral, as well as a funky bar downstairs with live music.


Day two 09.00: With Krka National Park so close, it would be a crime not to take a trip to one of Croatia’s great natural beauties. Buses to Skradin leave from the bus station at 9am,


or clients can go on an organised excursion. At the main reception at Skradin, there are hourly boats that go along the Krka River to Skradinski Buk, a tremendous series of waterfalls that tumble down travertine barriers. From Skradinski Buk, more boats


carry on into the national park, stopping at Visovac on the way. This peaceful island monastery allows 30-minute visits and gives visitors the chance to explore the 15th- century church and its grounds. Next on the boat tour is Roski


Slap, a dramatic waterfall that plunges into the river and can be seen from the boat as it arrives. Once the boat docks, take the trail that winds past a series of small cascades (nicknamed necklaces) and up the 300 or so wooden steps for magnificent views. The area around Roski Slap also offers some rustic places for hearty lunches.


11.00: For a day out closer to Sibenik, holidaymakers can discover the city’s green side on the isthmus of Zablace. Either walk or take a taxi boat and explore the five miles of trails that lead to the Unesco- listed, 16th-century St Nicholas Fortress, a massive structure on its own island, linked by a footpath. It’s a tranquil spot, and very different from the bustling beach resorts on Zablace’s southern edge.


17.00: It’s time to hit the beach. Plaža Banj, at the northern edge of Sibenik, is a long expanse of gravel in front of the stylish Petrus restaurant, bar and nightclub. There’s also an outdoor gym and a basketball court.


20.00: For dinner, head to Tomaseo along the Riva, which serves generous portions of Croatian risottos, pastas and meat dishes.


TW EXCURSIONS


The 89 barren but beautiful islands of Kornati National Park have long attracted sailors, but there are only 25 permanent residents. Boats take holidaymakers to one of 24 bays on excursions that usually include lunch and a chance to hike through the karst landscape and swim in clear waters. Some boats leave from Murter, which is worth a visit of its own. The island, connected by bridge to the coast, has pretty villages such as Betina, which is the home of traditional shipbuilding. Visitors can discover the history at the fascinating Betina Museum of Wooden Shipbuilding through multimedia exhibits, models and first-hand accounts from craftsmen.
