Šibenik – A beach in the town centre

22 November 2011 No Comment

Šibenik, a town in central Dalmatia, will from next year offer its visitors a new place for swimming – a beach in the town centre. Šibenik is the only town on the Adriatic that does not have a city beach and the nearest beaches such as Jadrija, Brodarica or Solaris can only be reached by boat, car or bus. But all of this will change next year and Šibenik will get a modern beach which will stretch across 12000 square metres. The beach called Banj will be located a five minute walk from the city centre. Proposed for construction is a promenade, restaurants and bars, changing rooms, showers, a playground, a beach volleyball sand court, a basketball court, a skateboarding ground and a free climbling polygon. With every sunset the beach will turn into an open air summer cinema and a stage for concerts and various events. The swimmers on the beach will not only be able to enjoy the sea but also the beautiful view of the old city core and the dome of St. Jakov Cathedral, which was included on the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage in 2000. This is the only cathedral in the whole of Europe built exclusively from stone, without the use of binding materials and wooden construction elements.
