We are happy to announce that on July 7, 2017, St. Nicholas Fort was added on the prestige list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, joining The Cathedral of St. James as the second World Heritage Site in Šibenik!
The Days of Carnival on Murter Island have being held for almost 130 years. The event starts on Shrove Tuesday throughout the island and gathers a large number of participants, so it has become a traditional event of fun, relaxation and reactions to social problems and life circumstances.
Every year on Easter Monday the Šibenik Tourist Board, together with the departments for catering and production activities of the Šibenik Tradesmen Association, organize an Easter Breakfast, a tradition that marks the beginning of the tourist season.
Croatian Lions regatta is a humanitarian fund raising event that has been organized on Murter Island since 1998 with the goal to support drug abuse prevention and rehabilitation programmes in Lions District 126, Croatia.
In 1988 there were already 118 boats participating in the Kornati Cup and the event has since turned into one of the biggest regattas on the east side of the Adriatic, presenting a unique union of sport and fun, professional yachtsmen and those for whom the final score is not the most important one.
The Vodice area has a network of over 350 km of road and mountain bike tracks. The tracks are generally reasonably easy and suitable for recreational cyclists. On the other hand, there is the famous track "Orlov krug" (Eagle's Circle), which hosts a World Cup MTB XCO race and is one of the most demanding mountain bike tracks in Croatia.
At the Church of St. John in Vodice the local tourist board is organizing a nice gathering of local citizens and visitors, with a programme that includes "klapa" songs performances, preparation of traditional dishes and the excursion to the Arauzona archaeological site.
