A very proud and historical town of Šibenik calls itself Krešimir`s town since it was mentioned for the first time as early as 1066 in a document of the famous Croatian king Petar Krešimir IV.

The town is situated in the middle of the indented eastern Adriatic coast. Throughout the centuries it had been referred to as a cultural, scientific trading and military centre of Dalmatia.

Owing to its location and geographic features Šibenik is considered one of the most important ports in the strategic and nautical sense. Recently, it has taken an important place in the tourists` destination map of Croatia due to its location, transport nets and supply.
