April 2, 2021 - Croatia features in New York's Condé Nast Traveler!

Croatia, as a desirable tourist destination, graces the cover of the April issue of the renowned New York travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler. 

Condé Nast Traveler Magazine is a luxury travel magazine aimed at the upmarket, independent traveler. It provides its audience with the latest travel news, guides, tips, and ideas including some of the most beautiful places, best vacation spots, and places to visit worldwide. 

As reports, a photo of Lake Mir and the surrounding cliffs of Telašćica Bay is on the cover, while the same issue of the magazine published a large article entitled Time and Tide, which describes the beauties of the Northern Dalmatian coast and islands. Croatia is described in the article as "a country of extreme beauty and resilience, where sun-bleached islands smell of sage and salt, and limestone-paved cities proudly carry their history." Special emphasis is placed on the charm of sailing through the Kornati archipelago, but also on the beauty and historical significance of Zadar and Šibenik, which are located in the immediate vicinity.

Condé Nast Traveller Recommends Holidaying in Šibenik in August

August the 14th, 2019 - Šibenik is without a doubt one of the Dalmatian coast's must-see destinations, but in comparison to cities like Split and Dubrovnik, it often ends up somewhat in the shadows. Wrongly so.

This UNESCO city with more history, culture and heritage than one can imagine is home to not only the International Children's Festival, but numerous stunning fortresses, gorgeous beaches, and much more. Often referred to as a gate to the glorious Kornati islands, this city is unlike the majority of other, similar cities dotted along Croatia's stunning coasline, Šibenik was not established by the Greeks, the Romans or the Illyrians, but by the Croats themselves.

This unique city has become not only a rising tourism star but a shining example of the proper use of EU funds. One could go on and on about what makes Šibenik so wrongly underrated and overlooked when compared to other cities in Croatia, but the numbers speak for themselves, and it seems that Šibenik is now firmly on the radar - and on an international scale.

Condé Nast Travelleré Nast Traveller, the internationally known and respected travel portal with its base in the United States, has won as many as 25 national magazine awards and has no trouble grabbing the attention of the masses with its alluring write-ups and glossy images. Šibenik has found itself listed by the site yet again.

Condé Nast Traveller has listed Šibenik on its list of where you should go on holiday in August. 

The magazine writes:

''Croatia, believe it or not, is still actually an option, even though its picture-perfect medieval cities and extraordinary coastline welcomed 20 million visitors last year. And one sometimes suspects that all 20 million turn up in August, when those straight-out-of-a-fantasy-novel fortified towns are bursting at the seams. Thank heavens, then, for Obonjan. This wellness retreat from the team behind the Hideout festival, sprawling across a private island of the same name, got off to a shaky start when it launched in 2016. But the kinks have been completely ironed out, and guests are guaranteed a tempting mix of yoga classes, chill-out music and glamping. Spare some time as well for Sibenik, a short speedboat ride away: a major historic city and a lovely labyrinth of chalk-white stone. A day’s sailing around the Kornati Islands – unpopulated idylls given over to vineyards, orchards, and little else – also supplies some much-needed mellow.''

Why not go and see for yourself just why Šibenik keeps getting mentioned by publications from across the globe?
