One of the best ports of departure is Šibenik, a city from where you can cruise the warm Adriatic, calling into islands as well as other parts of the Croatian mainland. With your yacht charter, you can anchor anywhere and enjoy the lovely beaches in the region. There are islands fairly close by, Zlarin and Prvic both of which are worth visiting. The archipelago has almost 250 islands, reefs and islets, largely northwest of the City of Sibenik.
Sibenik itself is famous for the St. James Cathedral which has UNESCO World Heritage status. It was begun in 1431 but took just over a century before it was finally completed. Its first mention in history was in the 11th Century when it was the seat of the King. It is the oldest town on the eastern coast of the Adriatic. The Venetians spent three centuries here and they have left their mark in churches and palaces. In addition, it was situated at the boundary between Christianity and Islam with the Ottomans seeking a move further north. As a direct result there are four impressive fortresses to see St. Michael, St. John, Šubićaevac and St. Nicholas which were built as a defence.
There are two National Parks, with Krka known for its waterfalls and Kornati, an archipelago of around 150 small islands. With the independence of a yacht charter, you can explore at will. The Krka National Park is just over 100 square kilometers and covers the final stretch of two Croatian Rivers, the Krka and the Cikola. It is a well-preserved environment that is able to cater to tourists. One feature of the Krka is its waterfalls and the Park’s formation was official recognition of its importance. Its management is in Sibenik itself.
