Lovely garden

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.

A beautiful little garden with a cafe...the perfect place to have a drink or an ice cream and take a break after climbing the stairs.

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. All the plants have name tags with Croatian and Latin names of the plants. The entrance to the gardens is free but... More

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.
