The historic town of Sibenik, connected with the expansion and development of the early Croatian state, is rich in cultural and historical monuments. The most representative among them is the famous Cathedral of Sibenik, one of the most original architectural projects of the late middle Ages, primarily linked to the local master Juraj Matejev Dalmatinac (George of Dalmatia).
