Connections to Šibenik take from 1.5 hours to as long as 9 hours!


Ferries: Central Dalmatia also includes islands, including. Hvar, Brač or Korčula, which can be reached by regular ferry services to major ports such as Split.
Jadrolinija, the largest and official pore line, offers a very wide range of destinations, from the nearest islands to a crossing to Italy.
