While staying in Vodice, do not forget to visit Šibenik, the ancient Croatian town carved in stone, only 11 km away from Vodice. At the central town square you can see a masterpiece by architect Juraj Dalmatinac – the Cathedral of St. Jacob in Šibenik. The construction of the cathedral lasted, with interruptions, for over a hundred years. The whole erection is built of stone, the roof and the dome as well. It is a recognizable detail of the Šibenik panorama. The wreath of human heads surrounds the walls of the cathedral.
In the summer, Šibenik is the host of the International Children’s Festival, a manifestation that has gathered children from around the world since 1958. Rich drama and music programs, performed by the selected ensembles from Croatia and the world, and art workshops are only some of the events that presented in the framework of this festival.
