    Northern Dalmatia extends from the island of Pag in the north to the city of Primosten in the south, and is home to the largest number of islands, including Pag, Zirje, Pasman, Dugi Otok and Kornat Island. In northern Dalmatia, there are three national parks, Paklenica, Krka and Kornati, and the main cities of this region are Zadar and Sibenik, very rich in historical sites and monuments.

    At first, a fortification founded near the fortress of St. Michael, which still dominates the town, Šibenik was first mentioned in 1066; and received the status of the city in 1290. Port is linked to the sea by the channel of the Sv. Ante, at whose entrance we can find magnificent Renaissance fortress of St. Nicholas, which, along with towers of St. Michael, St. Ivana and Subicevac represents a major historical landmark of the city. The Cathedral of St. Jakov, built for over a hundred years, is special in many ways, and certainly know by its construction method. In addition to these attractions, history lovers should make a tour around entire old town of Sibenik with numerous churches, fortresses and walls dating from XIV century. We also recommend visiting the museum, located at the bottom of the old town wells that supplied the city with water.

The bell tower, from which one can enjoy a spectacular view on Zadar city and the surrounding area, was completed  in 1894. In addition to already mentioned sites, it is worth visiting the church of Sv. Sime, St. Mary, St. Krševan (Grisogono), as well as the remains of the church Stomorica, destroyed in the 16th century, and many others. In the historic center of the city, which is bounded by walls, there is now a total of eight city gates of the thirty  that were originally made.
