We enjoyed the walk up to the Fortress, and the views from that location. Its interesting to see how they are repurposing this old site for modern use as a theater.

This fortress has a fantastic history and has been restored to a very high standard. Good information on history and archeological dig. Tremendous views of Sibenik and islands. Worth a visit.

Perched high up looking over Šibenik this is a lovely place to wander round and view the panorama that unfolds. You can see right through St. Anthony’s channel, and right over towards the Krka National Park. Some ancient artifacts, and old bits of wall, but...More

Of historic and architectural interest - sympathetic renovation and contemporary use as a concert venue. Fantastic views of the town and the islands. Well worth a visit.

As a concert hall it is bad and I would not be interested in listening to anything there. As an old fort, well, great view of Sibenik, and that is about it. Price to visit those forts is very steep tho.
