Tourism in Šibenik in recent years has been constantly developing and the number of guests each year has been increasing. Most tourists who visit Šibenik stay near the beaches in Šibenik or few kilometers away in Vodice, Primosten, Rogoznica, or on islands like Zlarina or Prviæ. The panorama view of Šibenik is breathtaking, especially in the summer. The beaches are very clean, with great atmosphere, and are a magnet for tourists. There are many bars, clubs, and restaurants that serve local sea specialties.
However, the city has much more to offer. To start with, the International Children's Festival starting in late June and lasting two weeks has been held here since the sixties and it is the largest cultural event in Šibenik, which brings together dance, drama, art, and other artists from around the world. Arsen Dedic, one of the most respected authors in Croatia, founded the Festival of Dalmatian Chanson, which quickly gained recognition in Croatia. Having been part of the Venetian Kingdom and the Habsburg Empire for many centuries, and then part of Italy, Šibenik has interesting sights such as the Cathedral of St. James, the Town Hall, the Duke's Palace (now a city museum), and the Church of St. Nicholas.
Šibenik hostels are quite numerous, although most Šibenik hostels operate only during the summer season. However, you can find a Šibenik hostel even during the winter, when there are not so many tourists. Like any other summer resort, Šibenik has hostels very close to the beach. You can book Šibenik hostels that are literally meters away from the beaches, and even if they are a bit further, this is not a problem as the city is not so big and it will take you not more than fifteen minutes to reach the nearest beach. Šibenik hostels offer outstanding conditions and their prices are moderate.
