Interesting, but not great
Sep 2021
Sibenik is not so interesting as Dubrovnik or Split and not so beautiful as Trogir, so it is not worth special visiting from Split. Two hours are enough for observing it's highlights, first of all the Cathedral of St. James - impressive from outside, but poor inside.

If you´re traveling by road between Split and Istria Peninsula, this stop is a must. The town in lovely, although very hot in Summer, but the Cathedral is worth it. It has a beautiful façade, with geometrical perfection, that served as an inspiration for the one in Zadar.
But besides its symmetric balance, it´s full with sculptures and carvings that make it unique. Take a parasol and surround the building, to admire the lions gate and the heads in the apse.
The locals are so proud of their church, they built a great museum to give more information about it.

Worthwhile Stop

We stopped here en route from Zadar to Split. The church was pretty impressive and we were able to grab a nearby parking spot. We were glad we saw it.

Note that you can take photos without a flash. We were unaware of this as the sign at the entrance indicated no cameras allowed. Also, there were about a dozen people there when we visited. We were the only ones wearing masks despite their rule requiring masks.

Probably the finest church in Dalmatia, I was amazed from the Baptizer fine artwork and took some of the most interesting photo inside.

There is lots of history at this cathedral. The carvings on the outside are great. I particularly liked the lions on either side of the doors.

Quick and easy visit of the cathedral was quite impressive. You will be able to walk inside, visit as you please and take pictures. Take your time, there are quite a lot of details all around inside. I love the light coming in behind the altar, it is quite dramatic.

Highly recommended + the city museum.
