Nice lovely and peaceful garden on a hill somewhere in the city. There is a small cafe, so you can enjoy a refreshment while looking at the garden.

This tiny garden, hidden among the houses of the steep old town of Šibenik, is a nice and peaceful spot to just sit down on one of the benches, admire the view and smell the herbs surrounding you.

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.
