Let’s go to ŠIBENIK, CROATIA with kid(s)!

Krenuli smo prema Primoštenu, četiri ujutro je … Ideja je da izbjegnemo gužvu (uspjeli), i da klinci odspavaju dio puta (savršeno uigran tim da ti ne dozvole ni minutu predaha, kada jedan nakon dva sata priče odluči zaspati, drugi se iste sekunde budi)… A zapravo su većinom oboje budni …

//

We’re headed towards Primošten, it’s 4 am … The idea is to avoid traffic jam (success) and to travel while the kids are sleeping (we have a perfectly coordinated team which doesn’t leave you even a single minute of free time … when finally after two hours of talking one of them decides to fall asleep the other one is just about to wake up) … And most often they’re both awake …

Negdje oko Zadra počinje kiša … U smještaj možemo tek od 14 h pa prvotnu ideju da jutro provedemo na nekoj od primoštenskih plaža mijenjamo posjetom Šibeniku. Jako sam sretna jer (nije baš pohvalno) u Šibeniku još nikad nisam bila … Iako je kišan i tmuran dan ne sumnjam da će Šibenik nadmašiti sva očekivanja … Parkirali smo pokraj autobusnog kolodvora (12 kn/h) i krenuli prema starom dijelu grada … Da bismo došli do starog dijela grada prolazimo pokraj šibenske luke od kuda se pruža prekrasan pogled prema gradu.

It started raining somewhere near Zadar … We can check in at 2 pm, so we changed our first idea to spend the morning on one of  the Primošten beaches by visiting Šibenik. I have to say that I’m quite thrilled with this fact cause (I’m not proud of that) I’ve never been to Šibenik before … Even though it’s quite cloudy and a bit rainy morning I have no doubt that Šibenik will outdo all my expectations … We parked near the bus station (12 kn/hour) and headed towards the old part of the town … To get there we passed near the Šibenik port from where you have a nice view towards the town.

Dolazimo do starog dijela grada i praćeni pokojom kapi kiše počinjemo istraživanje grada … Još nema ni 8 ujutro, blagdan je pa je i grad nekako posebno miran i uspavan okupan sitnom kišom. Lutamo gradskim ulicama i dolazimo do katedrale Sv. Jakova (kako li si je samo bio važan jedan od naših malih putnika shvativši da se katedrala zove jednako kao i on) … Više o katedrali ovdje.

Followed with a few rain drops we arrived to the old part of the town and started our exploration … It’s not even 8 am, it’s holiday and probably that’s why the town is somehow quite peaceful, serene caped with rain. We’re wandering down the city streets and getting to St. James cathedral ( how excited was one of our little travellers when he realised that the cathedrals name is the same as his) … More about the cathedral here.

Nakon katedrale i užeg središta grada počinju se otvarati i prvi kafići pa dio našeg “malog maturalca” odlučuje da je vrijeme za kavu … Ostatak nas odlazi “potražiti” tvrđave (Sv. Mihovil i Barone) kako bismo uživali u panoramskom pogledu na grad … Dolazimo do vrha ali na ulazu nas dočeka obavijest da je radno vrijeme od 09-20 h (i ako sam dobro vidjela ulaznica je 50 kn za obje tvrđave) … Budući da smo uranili nekih 20 minuta odlučujemo dalje istražiti grad… Evo što smo sve vidjeli putem prema tvrđavama …

After seeing the cathedral and the narrow city center the first coffee shops are starting their working hours, so one part of our little excursion decides it’s time for coffee … The rest of us decides to search the fortresses (St. Michaels and Barone) so we could enjoy the panoramic view of Šibenik … While coming to the fortress entry there’s the sign that the working hours are 09-20 h (and if I’m not mistaking the price of the entry ticket is 50 kn for both fortresses) … Since we’re about 20 minutes early we decide to continue with town sightseeing… This is what we saw on our way to fortresses …

Nakon kave i sladoleda (znam da je tek prošlo 9 ujutro 🙂 ali bez prigovaranja su se popeli skroz do tvrđava) odlučujemo potražiti šibenski aquarium/terrarium koji sam im obećala u slučaju kiše (više o aquariumu/terrariumu u idućem postu).

//

After coffee and ice cream ( I know it’s 9 am 🙂 but they climbed all the way to the fortresses without saying a word) we decide to take a look at aquarium/terrarium Šibenik which I promised in the case of rain (more about the aquarium/terrarium in our next post).

Nakon oduševljenja svime viđenim krećemo polako prema autu i pravac Primošten … Još jedan pogled prema ovom lijepom gradu i obećanje da se vračamo ponovno ako ništa drugo onda zbog tvrđava koje ovaj put nismo stigli posjetiti …

//

Being thrilled with everything that we saw, we are continuing our field trip and are headed towards Primošten … Another look at this beautiful city and a promise that we’ll come back, if nothing else than to see the fortresses that we didn’t get the chance to see today …
