If you are in Sebinek, you must go to Old Town and the fortress. Such history and quaint apartments tucked into the old walls are an amazing sight. Be sure to stop at the cemetary and see old and new grave sights.

Dear travelinggrandmaWy, thanks for You review. We love it that You liked the fortress and recognized it as central part of Šibenik's Old Town. St. Anne's cemetery is also an important sight, although not a part of the fortress. Regards, Iva

We enjoyed the walk up to the Fortress, and the views from that location. Its interesting to see how they are repurposing this old site for modern use as a theater.
