Croatia is full of medieval forts but they usually disappear in ruins which is sad considering how many we have and how awesome stories can be told about them. Guests visiting our country are missing the opportunity to learn some more about the history. That's why I was so satisfied with St. Michael's fortress, birthplace of City of Šibenik, because it was taken care of. Every step I made inside was experience to remember. Viewpoints, audio guide, maintained paths, preserved walls of the fortress and info boards it let's you learn the history while taking a walk and enjoying the view of Šibenik! This is how all medieval forts should be treated, it is our heritage! Congrats!

We really liked our visit to the fortress. First of all, it's easily accessible. Unlike most forts, this one is practically in the old town, and hike up the hill is not tiresome at all. The fortress is nice, you can get an interactive tablet with the information on the history of the fortress. But the thing that is the best, the thing that makes the ticket's money worth is the view. We went there at the sunset, and it was one of the best things we've seen that day.

Mighty fortress, standing tall and guarding the City of Šibenik. Cool place whith wonderfull view on the City and the sea in front. Really beautiful and relaxing. Inside you can read about soldiers and architects who over time built and extended the fortress that defended Šibenik from the Ottomans. The fortress offers a stage for concerts and nice bar under the auditorium. Really nice. There are more interesting things to look at like a computer graphic of various representations displayed on the walls inside the fortress in two places. Nice. My love and I liked the fortress. Come and see for yourself.

It's getting improved every year so now the water cistern are used to display the historical findings in the fortress by using beamers which create nice visual effects. Go in the morning or in the evening bc we were there at 10 AM and it was already hot. It's ok to go by foot from the city, even if it seems so uphill, the climb is not that hard. Cheap tickets... you can buy combined tickets for both fortresses (Barone) for €10. There is a bar in the shade to relax so don't be afraid of the sun.
