Šibenik Croatia... Old Town and Krka Falls

From Zadar bus terminal I bought a bus ticket to Šibenik  it only cost 56 kuna and 7 kuna extra  charge for the luggage compartment, it's about 1 1/2 hour travel with free wifi on board and beautiful scenery it was a good journey.

As soon as I arrived at Šibenik Bus Station, went straight to find Hostel Mare, I quickly found the place its only 10 minutes walk from the station and just across the road from Old Town. I was early before the check in time so I just sat by the lounge while waiting for the room to be ready I was immediately connected to the wifi. Check in was quick, Nimo checked my passport, gave me my key and towel. I settled myself in my room with air conditioning, I was sharing with 2 lads from Denmark and 3 girls from Texas ( Andrea, Michelle and Olivia ) lovely bunch of girls. It was raining out so I decided to catched up with some sleep, I only had 4 hours sleep from the previous night. After a couple of hours I woke up refresh and I quickly changed and decided to wander around Old Town, as it turned out lovely evening and the sun is shinning.

On my second day Me, Michelle, Andrea and Olivia went to Krka National Park, from Nimo's instruction that we need to go to the bus station and catch a bus going to Skradin bought a bus ticket for 48 kuna, A more or less 30 minutes journey, and when we reached Skradin we bought  ticket for the Krka National Park that cost 110 kuna with free ferry boat ride to take us to the park. We arrived at the park after 20 minutes ferry ride.

Visiting Śibenik isnt complete without experiencing Krka. Krka  National Park is extremely beautiful, the magnificent falls cascading  on the side of the mountain that flows down to the river. I was so lucky  to swim along with other travellers and visitors. It was a lovely feeling close to nature, fresh air, what a spectacular view, the feeling of satisfaction it gives is just indescribable. When visiting Krka bring a pair of bikini and take a dip to the inviting waterfall river. This experience is highly recommended. Theres also walking, hiking trails to explore the whole park.

Let me take you to my wonderful Krka Adventure through the photos.

Other blogger has inspired me to travel solo and experience the best places, activities and meet new people/friends along the way. I hope my blog will inspire others too. Browsing photos of beautiful places uploaded online by other travellers urged me to travel more. Come and join me to my discoveries to different places on my future travels.

  7. I was just in Sibenik this summer, at the end of August and also stayed in hostel Mare...One thing I will not do again is to go to Croatia in summer unless I need to visit a friend in a small village..It is a beautiful country, no doubt about it but Oh, my God...so crowded and so overpriced...(hostels in Japan and Australia have been cheaper!!!) Luckily I managed to escape and hide from the crowds in a small village where no tourist go, the beach was all ours, water was crystal clear :)

  10. It's been nine years since I went to Croatia and I'm very encouraged that it is still a reasonably affordable travel destination. The stones in the old town are so beautiful and historic - love your shots!
