About the tour

Why should you visit Šibenik? To learn about its past, see its architecture, walk its charming narrow alleys or enjoy the coastline? The answer is all of the above! Join me on a walk around old town Šibenik and learn why the Cathedral of Saint James is so unique. It is truly an architectural masterpiece! You will see the finest examples of medieval stone architecture and masonry. Stories of the town’s past will take you to an intriguing old world. Some stories are happy and heroic. You will hear about artists and other brilliant people who left their mark here. Also, Šibenik was the greatest town on this side of the Adriatic at one point in time. You will learn what life was like then. Other stories are sad, like the one about a major plague that brought the town to its knees. The old town has much to tell and show you. Share its charm with you. Let’s explore Šibenik together and fall in love with its stone beauty!

Meet your local guide


This is Vjeran ("faithful" in Croatian) or, easier, V.J. He's in love with his country and would love to present its beauty, history and everything else about it. He was born in 1981 in Split, where he grew up. He still lives in this area and it would be hard for him to call any other place home. He's blessed with a wonderful wife and three children (two boys and a girl), who are his motivation and inspiration. Vjeran has worked as a licensed tourist guide since 2012, but has been involved in tourism since he was 14. After graduating from high school, with an emphasis on tourism, he obtained my undergraduate degree, again, in tourism. He really enjoys spending time with people with whom he can share why he's so passionate about Croatia. Simply said, he loves what he does! Join him in Split!

Vjeran has been guiding since Mar 2012
