British Media Discovers Sibenik, ‘Dubrovnik Without the Crowds’

Total Croatia News

The British media’s love affair with the Dalmatian coast continues on December 6, 2016, as the Daily Mail discovers Sibenik.

Tourism on the Dalmatian coast is changing. For years the number one destination was the Pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik. Split was known as the Gateway to the Islands, and the Makarska Riviera was a great place to head for a beach holiday. 

But in recent years, especially with the arrival of budget airlines, other destinations have come into play. Split is now one of the hippest destinations in Europe, slowly becoming a year-round destination, while a little further north, Zadar was voted Best European Destination for 2016. Nestled between the two, and with its own UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a Dalmatian destination which is finally emerging from the shadows – Sibenik. A destination featured today in the British Daily Mail, and described as a ‘Dubrovnik without the crowds.’

“You’ll need your swimsuit when you visit Croatia’s Krka national park, named after the river running through it and down to the Adriatic.

For years, local youths have impressed girls by jumping down the largest of its waterfalls, the spectacular 17-step Skradinski Buk, into the foaming waters below — a tradition that continues despite the odd fatality.

‘I did it myself,’ says our guide, with a trace of pride. They’re a hardy bunch here on the Dalmatian Coast.”
