Small cafe for light lunch or just an ice cream. This is a city that has no space for gardens, so it is a little oasis for the town, but medicinal herbs are never the most colourful creatures so I see why some people are disappointed. But a sweet spot to sit and rest while indulging in an ice cream.

Sibenik is built on the side of a steep hill, so wherever you go involves steps and stairs. Having climbed up to the fortress of St. Michael, only to find it closed for building work, I had a look round St Ana's cemetery (highly recommended) and then stumbled upon the medieval Mediterranean gardens. It's small, compact, with a bar selling... More

This is a small garden attached to what use to be a monastery. Only the bell tower is left. I'm sorry but, in all honesty, this garden is no big deal. It contains various shrubs and plants, most without color when we visited in September. The walking paths might be shaped in a cross, but does this really matter? There's... More

The garden is laid out in the shape of a cross, with medicinal plants as well as ornamental. Have a water or coffee , it is very serene and a lovely garden to spend time with friends in or alone admiring the garden.

Perhaps too early to see much in blossom (end May, should have been great but 2013 spring had dismal weather), there were a lot of plants that were well labelled but not very impressive since it was mostly greenery. Well kept with a cafe at the entrance, this garden is very tiny (maybe 10 x 20 meters) and can be... More

This was the perfect place to sit on a hot day. The garden is well laid out with a fountain in the centre. The cafe serves drinks and ice-cream. It was a great place to relax and write postcards.

A beautiful garden in the midst of 15 century buildings. You feel in a middle of a movie set. Worth to sit at the cafe to enjoy a cold drink or a gelato
