Worth the hike up just for the view. Not much else in the fortress to see. A map is provided and there are some historical facts listed around the ruins, but overall the view is the best.

St. Michael's Fortress offers a very nice view to the old town of Sibenik and to the shore. It was just wonderful to watch sailing boats to sail by. The outdoor auditorium was a splash of color and looked wonderful.

The climb to this site is quite tough if you approach it from the Cathedral. It's easier walking up the Main Street which gives you a gradual walk up a reasonable incline taking you to the last climb. There are still some c170 to go...More

As you slowly wander up the side streets of old Sibenik, keep your eyes open and you will make all sorts of discoveries. In fact, half the value of visiting the fortress is the hike up and back. We found a great little restaurant on...More

Not much to read or see inside except the view on the surroundings area which is really grand as is to be expected from a strategic fortress. You can get some of that view going around in the gardens but nothing as good as from...More

Lots of steps but there was a lift I think. Great views over the estuary. They have a rooftop theatre so might be worth checking to see what's on when you visit.

We had a great walk up to the fort through the winding streets. It was well sign posted and relatively cheap entrance fee. There are great views from the top. We would highly recommend a visit.

For me there are two best spots in Šibenik with the best view, one is this fortress and the other one is the view-point at St. Anthonies Walkway. This you get for the price of a Cappuccino in Venice, but the memories last longer...
