Discover pet-friendly hotels in Šibenik, Croatia

On the dreamy Dalmatian coast, the mediaeval charms of Šibenik include an Old Town tangled with steep stony streets, the Unesco-approved St James’ cathedral – famous for its frieze of 71 sculpted heads – and, just off the coast, a sprinkling of snorkel-ready islands that form the Kornati archipelago. The city makes the perfect base for a day trip to the waterfalls and hiking trails of Krka National Park or, if that sounds a bit keen, stay put and wander the waterfront, popping into the brilliant bars and restaurants along the promenade.
