Enjoyable church, great to see the inside and enjoy the hospitality of the staff. Amazing to see such a nice church, ok, there are lots of churches but this one is ok. Charge is only to cover maintenance and us heavy footed tourists.

Wonderful architecture that are under unesco protection. Icon of the city center. Don't expect miracles it's only church but looks wonderful.

A real shame they charge to go into a church. I was disappointed with both the charge and the limited things to see inside.

Lovely place to visit. A must when visiting sibenik. Very reasonable entry to the cathedral, with free information leaflet in all different languages. The cathedral is in main area and easily accessable.

If you have seen any big churches or cathedrals before, you may no find this very impressive. However it is in the UNESCO list so you can pay a visit. The inside is not big, but the decorations outside are nice.
