EXPLORING TOWNS

ZADAR

SPLIT

SIBENIK

Not just famous for the nearest airports to Tisno; Zagreb and Split are 2 beautiful ancient towns that have some truly wonderful architecture and well preserved Roman structures. Zadar is a charming mix of ancient ruins, medieval churches and cosmopolitan cafes and shops. Another must see is the light and sound spectacle of the Sea Organ and Sun Salutation designs by local architect Nikola Bašić. The Sea Organ is a set of perforated stone stairs that generates music as the sea moves through organ pipes. The Sun Salutation is a large solar panel made up of multi layered glass panels that lights up the sea front at night, the display of colourful lights is dependent on the energy collected throughout the day as well as the power of the waves.

Split, a bustling, thriving port town is the second largest city in Croatia and is stunningly located between the mountains and the sea. While exploring the maze of narrow streets that lead through the centre’s beautiful buildings, keep an eye out for one of Europe’s narrowest roads ‘Let me pass’ Street leading up to Jupiter’s Temple. There’s plenty of restaurants and bars to explore here and it’s well located for walking trips back out to nature if you wish to escape the city.

Šibenik is the oldest Croatian town along the coast that was originally established by Croats. Added to the UNESCO world heritage site because of the beautiful Cathedral of St Jacob, Sibenik has its own share of beauty and wonder. If you’re using public transport to get to Krka national park this is a good place to head to for buses over and a great place to stop for food and culture on your way back.
