Sibenik-Knin County is bounded by mountain Dinara and sea. From its coastal side, it stretches to Rogoznica on the south and to Pirovac on the west. That unusually indented coastal and insular band represents Riviera Sibenik and a group of 125 islands, small islands and reefs above sea level which make National Park Kornati are especially important due to their beauty.
Sibenik is an administrative centre of the County, while towns Knin and Drnis are the centres of Dalmatinska Zagora, known for its rich history and archeological sites. Knin is also a hero town of Croatian War of Independence, while Drnis has become the synonym for high quality wine and prosciutto ham. Near Knin rises river Krka which divides Sibenik-Knin County on two parts, so it seems like the County belongs to both North, as well as to the Middle Dalmatia. On its upper current, Krka creates natural phenomenon preserved as National Park Krka. Then it mouths to Prokljansko Jezero and afterwards to the sea. On its way there are many well-known tourist destinations such as: Skradin, Raslina, Bilice and Zaton (see: Zaton apartments).
The County's tourist orientation has secured accommodation for large number of tourists. Hotels Solaris Sibenik are well-known tourist settlement, 7 kilometres away from Sibenik. However, local people are also oriented towards tourism, so for many people the rent of private accommodation (see: Sibenik apartments) is a very important additional business that improves households' budgets. In fact, many citizens work in Sibenik's economy and places such as Primosten, Prvic Luka or Prvic Sepurine (Sepurina) are their second destination where, in their own houses, they have arranged the apartments for rent to tourists.
Well-known tourist destination are not just the above mentioned Primosten or Prvic Luka. Island Murter (see: Murter apartments) is well known to yachtsmen from all over the world. Fishing, marines, shipyard, tourism are all closely connected to Murter and Betina (see: Betina apartments). And for those who wish to stay closer to the mainland, actually partly on the mainland and partly on the island, there is a great destination Tisno where Murter Island is connected to the mainland by the movable bridge. Hundreds of private houses and apartments (see: Tisno apartments) are at the guests' disposal.
On the way to Murter, Tisno, Jezera and Betina (the largest settlements od Murter Island), on the other side of the bay, in its whole length, you can see Pirovac. Situated on the most western part of Sibenik Riviera, Pirovac is an excellent starting point for even three national parks: Kornati, Krka and Paklenica.
The dillettantes of peaceful atmosphere will surely choose Zirje Island. Apart from its distance from civilization, Zirje is adorned by numerous hidden bays-bathing areas. Although a part of island is tarmac-paved, here you certainly don't need a car, but bycicles are surely welcomed. Numerous paths and belvederes are the paradise for those who wish to relax and ride bycicles, but also for those who own a boat or just want to experience real holiday listening to the song of crickets (see: Zirje apartments).
So, here, within the project Croatia Apartments, we have summoned the part of North Dalmatia. Numerous other destinations of Sibenik Riviera and Sibenik-Knin County can be found on the site Info Adriatic - Croatia Apartments, to which owners we are grateful for the given materials.
