The port of Sibenik, Croatia is located in the hinterland and is accessible from the Adriatic Sea by sailing along the 2 km of the Saint Anthony navigable channel. Sibenik is an important cultural centre and a large commercial port with many services available locally.
The historic centre has been well preserved and has a magnificent cathedral, various museums and three forts. There are houses that date back to the Middle Ages and refer to the previous occupations of Illyrians, Greeks and Romans.
St. Jakov's Cathedral is very unusual; construction began in 1433 and ended over 100 years later in 1536. Designed by one of the best Croatian architects, Juraj Dalmatinac. The exterior of the Cathedral has 71 heads carved in stone that would be portraits of local citizens who refused to contribute to construction costs.
Of the seventeenth century is the church of San Nikola which has a long tradition of sailors and shipbuilders and it has an excellent gallery of models of sailing ships.
