  • Situated on the mountain, close to the Centre of the old town of Sibenik, is a totally restored Castle. From the quay is a 10-minute walk to get there. It is really entirely in the old (modern) State and looks great. From the Castle you have beautiful views over the city and port. An absolute must. My advice: go have a times over the course of the evening. It is a lot cooler and by lighting will get its own special atmosphere.

  • This visit is paid 50 kuna per person. It's worth! The view is beautiful from above. There is a part that can be visited with tanks and cannons.

  • The fortress is nice on the outside, and the view is really nice, but inside is not just renovated, it's been converted in concrete and there is barely anything left of the actual fortress to see. Not worth the price for these two fortress. Go to St John's instead. It's free, actually authentic and has better views, even though you can't go inside as of October 2017.
  • Even if the fortress is not very interesting inside, I must give the best opinion because of fantastic view on Sibenik and its bay. It is really breathtaking. Very interesting is also amphitheater for different events like concerts and the like. There is almost nothing inside in terms of exhibits, but it is worth to see short movie with animation about the siege of Sibenik by the army of Ottoman Empire.
  • The view is absolutely amazing! Especially during the sunset. It's not to crowdy... Perfect place
  • The view is amazing, there is a bathroom, a café and a summer stage. I enjoyed my visit and recommend to everyone to go. 🙃
  • Nice place, good views from the top. A little too expensive tickets.

Where to stay in Sibenik

Unlike most Croatian towns, Sibenik offers few private accommodations, with most of its rooms in large resorts well outside the city. Sibenik's few hostels provide simple but comfortable lodgings near major attractions, but most travelers end up basing themselves somewhere along the coastline and exploring the city on day trips. Get the most out of your visit by staying in one of the nearby villages, which provide quick access to the city and some of the finest beaches on the Adriatic's eastern shore.
