    Hotel Vestibul is located in the heart of the Diocletians palace between the emperor's chambers and the emperor's square "Peristile", a place which used to be reserved only for the gods. Hotel was created by merging three palaces from three different periods: Romanic, Gothic and Renaissance with the wall elements of the Diocletian palace, and the original niches from Roman time. This combination optimally displays the physical presence of the eras which past us by, where every stone has a story to tell. Hotel is a combination between the modern and the antique, where the modern design of the interior is interwoven with the original walls of the Roman time. Strictness of the ambiance is broken down by the natural light through the large glass roof of the lobby, and by the pleasant evening lighting.

Day 3

River Krka Waterfalls and Sibenik

Your day begins with a pleasant coach drive through the karsts hinterland of Sibenik Riviera. You will arrive in the town of Sibenik, the oldest Croatian town on the Adriatic coast. It is also called Kresimir's town, since it was the residence of King Petar Kresimir IV, the most important ruler of the ancient Croatian state. It grew from an old Croatian fort near the fortress of St. Michael, which still overlooks the town. Upon arrival, you can enjoy sightseeing one of the most valuable sacral monuments in Dalmatia - the St. James' Cathedral dating from the 15 century. By many things it is unique, not only in the Croatian architecture, but in the European as well.

You will then continue to the famous waterfalls of the River Krka. Here, in beautiful natural surroundings, the River Krka forms picturesque waterfalls cascading over 17 natural barriers. You will visit the restored ethnological monuments to become better acquainted with the customs of the region. The preserved watermills are from the 19th century and have exceptional cultural and historical significance. You will see presentations of milling wheat, washing and pounding of cloth, weaving of fabrics and floor masts, horseshoe smithing, ploughing, planting, the preparation of the food in the old kitchens and more. You will walk along the wooden paths to Skradinski buk - the longest and the loveliest waterfall on the Krka River. This is a spot where the stunning beauty is expressed in full through the perennial play of sun and water. Here you will have free time for walking, sightseeing, photograph taking and swimming in this beautiful environment.

Note: Guests must be able to walk over varying terrain and approximately 100 steps (together in Sibenik and in the National Park). Walking at Krka National Park is at guests' discretion during free time. Swimming is at guests' on risk as no lifeguard is on duty. Conservative attire (no tank tops or shorts) that covers both shoulders and knees is suggested when visiting the Cathedral in Sibenik.
