A comprehensive catalogue of buildings in the historic centre of Šibenik is in the works

We’ve mentioned on multiple occasion that the city of Šibenik truly deserves a champion title when it comes to EU-funded development projects and preservation of cultural and historical heritage. One more project now joins the ranks: Geonucleus.Si, an information system on the historic centre of Šibenik that will serve as a sort of catalogue, containing important details on all the objects.

Every building in Šibenik’s urban core will be featured in the system, accompanied with all relevant information and renovation guidelines provided by conservators. Once when the list is completed, it will be published on a website that will provide its users with information required to properly maintain the objects. It will also be of use to those who decide to invest in property in the city centre, reported Lokalni.


Nikola Grubić, the president of the Juraj Dalmatinac Society, called Geonucleus.Si a one-of-a-kind project in Croatia. In a way, all buildings located in the historic centre of Šibenik will now have their ID cards available online.

“The project will contribute to the systematical approach to renovation and restoration in the area of the historical core which represents Šibenik’s treasure, its culture, history, and tourism potential. I want to thank the Juraj Dalmatinac Society, the Ministry of Culture and the Department of Conservation for their fantastic idea and the work they’ve done so far”, said Mayor of Šibenik Željko Burić.


Tomislav Petrinec, the head conservator for immovable heritage at the Ministry of Culture, said the historic centre of Šibenik is one of the most valuable and best preserved on the entire Adriatic coast. Considering the goal is to keep the centre inhabited and brimming with life, the project will be of great help to the residents in case they decide to renovate their property, as it will make it easier to adhere to guidelines and regulations provided by conservators.

Some 330 objects have been inscribed on the list so far, and the website is expected to be up and running by the end of the year.
