A few facts about Šibenik
Šibenik is a small port-city on the northern Dalmatian coast and is most famous for its Saint James Cathedral, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage list, as are the city wall, dating to the Venetian era.
Šibenik was first mentioned under its present name in 1066 in a Charter of the Croatian King Petar Krešimir IV. and was the seat of the Croatian King. That's why Šibenik is nicknamed Krešimir's city.
It is the oldest native Croatian town on the eastern shores of the Adriatic and a statue of King Petar Krešimir IV stands between the park and the beginning of the promenade along the sea.
It was a very important town in Venetian-Turkish wars and was a frontier of western civilization and Christianity for many centuries, eventually becoming a part of Austria-Hungary, Yugoslavia and now independent Croatia.
The 16th-century polymath and bishop Faust Vrančić, known as one of the inventors of parachute and perhaps the first man who ever used it, was born here and lived here.
The famous basketball player Dražen Petrović, and Maksim Mrvica, the famous piano player, were also born here.
A trademark of the city is the traditional Šibenik hat, a coloured orange and black, which are also the city's official colours.
What to see while in Šibenik
Šibenik is famous for its St James Cathedral, whose construction started in 1431 and was not finished until 1536 due to the Turkish wars.
Several successive architects built it completely in stone, without any kind of binder, in the 15th and 16th centuries, both in Gothic and in the Renaissance style. The interlocking stone slabs of the Cathedral's roof were damaged when the city was heavily shelled by Serbian forces in 1991, in an attempt to split the country in half. The damage has since been repaired.
Another curiosity of this church are the 72 human heads carved in stone on the external part which belong to unknown individuals, passers-by, sailors, merchants and peasants who posed as the cathedral was being built, as well as the statues of Adam and Eve, because Adam is covering his breasts, and Eve is covering not her breasts, but her stomach.
