Adventura Šibenik: Fun and winter ambient spirit in Christmastime
The city of Šibenik has lots to offer its guests during the summer season, but the city has more to offer throughout the year too, especially in Christmastime. See some lovely Christmas decorations and taste local delicates and mulled wine which will blow you away!
Adventura is an event that starts on the 7th of December and lasts throughout the month until January 1st. This year, 2019, two more locations have been added to give the visitors more of Šibenik's Christmas cheer.
The most famous location that is included in this amazing event from the beginning is the Park of Robert Visiani, which spreads from the Riva, the city's famous promenade, and the statue of a Croatian king Petar Krešimir the IV, to the Poljana square that is the city center.
The other two locations include the Medulić square in the old part of the city. Medulić is very charming with its location among the narrow stone streets and buildings as well as many hotels that blend into the city's stone motifs. Another location is the Small Loggia located on the square in front of the famous Cathedral of St. James, a stunning monument protected by the UNSECO.
Adventura slogan, "Nema zime" roughly translated as "No Winter" gives an idea of the high temperatures and calm weather traditionally around Christmas, so don't worry that you will bee too cold to enjoy those tasty sausages and wine! Be sure to try the tasty Luganiga, special sausage only found in Šibenik whose recipe is kept hidden for generations!
Adventura is the first plastic-free Christmas-themed event in Croatia that will rise your sense of the environment and bring you closer to nature. The very center of the park, a game is set called "Earth, don't be angry" which is intended to increase our care for the environment. Everyone can play, just take your glasses and roll the dice. The rest is history!
Šibenik locals love their untouched nature and always look for new opportunities to keep their beautiful green surroundings safe and protected. Did you know that the island of Zlarin near Šibenik city is a plastic-free island?
