Subicevac Fortress, Sibenik
(2/5 based on 20 reviews on the web)
Perched hilltop, Subicevac Fortress represents a fortress built in 1646 to protect against Turkish attacks. Today, overgrown stonework is all that remains, but the view is second to none. Terra-cotta clay roofs dot the horizon, amid the lush greenery of this coastal town. Take in the view from the viewing terrace, or enjoy a picnic on the park benches. Along the footpath to the neighboring fortress watch for remnants of World War II bunkers. Make Subicevac Fortress a centerpiece of your Sibenik vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Sibenik tourist route planner.

  • Some complain about the price, but you get a combination ticket for a more fortress further down. The ticket is valid, several days, so that you can see both units on two different days.

Reaching the second fortress from the old town on foot! The prospect of two points is really worth seeing. So if you're already there, you should leave don't miss it! Rather there but cannot be seen. In the visitor centre, there is still some information otherwise for children a pirate ship to play and a kiosk for drinks and snacks.

  • Even the orange ties on the staff make this more interesting than a hundred other Mediterranean fortresses that you will visit. The staff are all friendly and seem to enjoy their jobs. The cafe restau...  more »
