To us coffee means so much more than a simple drink, people fall in love alongside, they divorce, cry, laugh, sign contracts, they discuss neighbour's midnight quarrels with his wife (which are impossible not to hear in those narrow stone streets, with windows so close to one another). Here, coffee represents a whole culture of living.
Therefore, when in
never take coffee to go. Enjoy it like us, for a while and than some, while
deciding what interesting places you'd visit that day. In Šibenik you'll pay
around 10 kn (1.20 Euros) for a cup of coffee, and in the very heart of the old
city centre, in cafe bar Giro Espresso,
you'll get the best coffee there is. Recently a snack bar has been opened next
door to it - Giro Gusto, where you can enjoy a delicious, quick bite ( tramezzini sandwich, sushi, brushetta bread,

When you're done with your coffee, why not enjoy some shopping? It's always a good way to relax, and this time of year always gives us a perfect alibi for it. I would recommend the art gallery of academic painter Lana Čala Martinović, situated in the vicinity of
, in St John
Church Faust Vrancic Street.
Her paintings show motives of Šibenk in a playful, Lana's way, which will
definitely put you under their spell..

In the spirit of Christmas atmosphere, the road took us to Murter, to Boba Restaurant, because we decided to follow the advice of our friend Frane Kalauz, an excellent diver who knows all the best gourmet places. Tartar tuna, tuna on cow curd, lampuga fish and truffles carpaccio, tuna and caper carpaccio, cuttlefish polenta, pasta with crab, monkfish on shrimp tails with truffles, and home made baklava!!! This restaurant should definitely be on top of your must-visit list! Friendly host, top-quality dishes, rich wine list and cosy interior. It's situated in the very centre of Murter, at the
island of Murter
Boba Restaurant, yummy!!
There's nothing better to finish an amazing evening than a glass of good wine, so we decided to go to Vino&ino, a wine bar that quickly got a lot of good reputation, and where you'll also enjoy the lovely interior and a unique view of
. If you're lucky, like we are,
you'll find yourself here right on the 'Vine Tasting Night', where you'll have
the chance to taste the wines from famous Šibenik winemakers and learn something about them. We enjoyed
the wines from Sladić Winery, and trust me, the exclusive premiere of barrique Lasina
was more than a respectable ending to a great festive day. St John Church
