Stout rugged Šibenik hosts

During the 19th century, foreign travel writers began to discover the Croatian coast, predominantly from England. They were especially attracted to the Šibenik-Knin County. In these old days, tourism was not yet formed as we know it today, but travelers were on their way even then. The motives for traveling to a specific region was, as it is mostly today, the valuable monumental heritage and unspoiled and surprisingly beautiful nature.
