Children’s Festivals

Children's Festival Šibenik - Croatia villas

Šibenik is a fantastic destination for a family-friendly holiday in one of our Croatian villas. The city has so much to offer. Parents may wish to visit one of the ancient churches, whilst children often enjoy climbing the city’s towers and exploring the fortresses, which also offer magnificent views of the sea. After that, head to the beach for a spot of well-deserved relaxation! A stay in one of our Croatian villas is not complete without a visit to the local museums. The town is brimming with history; for example, the city was once home to the famous polymath and inventor, Fausto Veranzio. An example of his work is his book, Machinae Novae, which deals with the problems of his time. Veranzio also developed many ideas, which were well ahead of his time, such as the parachute.

Croatia villa holidays and the International Children's Festival

A stay in one of our apartments or cottages with hot tubs offers the perfect opportunity to visit the International Children’s Festival which takes place during late June/early July. During this time the city celebrates children’s imagination and creativity – it is the perfect destination for adults (who have never forgotten their playful side) and children alike! From June 20th-July 4th, the town is brimming with theatre groups, local artists and has countless programmes specifically designed for children. Theatre productions take place on the outdoor stage at the St James Cathedral, as well as other locations across the city. Wherever you stay during a Croatia villa holidays, you will find that all the locations are easily accessible – in fact, they are just a few hundred metres from each other!
