ACCESS

St. Michael's Fortress has two entrances. A north entrance (from the fire station or Ana Rukavina Park) and a south entrance (from St. Anne’s Cemetery). You can see the Fortress map here. In case a visit to St. Michael’s Fortress is included in a city tour, we recommend the Fortress as a starting point. The Fortress is the oldest inhabited area of the city, so it makes sense to begin the whole story about the history and development of Šibenik at the Fortress. This way, the group goes down the streets and steps through the old town towards the Cathedral and other sights, which makes the tour of the city a lot simpler and easier. Upon completion of the tour of Šibenik, guests accompanied by a guide may simply reach the parked buses by foot and in a short time.

 

ACCESS FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

Access for persons with disabilities is available on the plateau below the Fortress via access road from the fire station. From the plateau, visitors with mobility problems can access the elevator that leads to the underground level of the Fortress (the so-called info room and cistern - the northern part of the basement) and the upper level - the stage. St. Michael’s Fortress is equipped with restrooms adapted for persons with disabilities. Accordingly, the object St. Michael’s Fortress is partially accessible for tours of persons with disabilities.

 

RESTROOMS

The Fortress has two spacious and modern restrooms in its underground premises, adapted to its capacities.

 

PARKING

St. Michael’s Fortress does not have its own parking area for a large number of vehicles. Therefore, the available city parking areas in the Fortress' vicinity are used. The nearest parking area is located beneath the Fortress on the north-western side, just behind the fire station. For group visits to St. Michael’s Fortress, the large parking area located at the premises of the former TEF factory is used. Here you can find a flyer of the company Gradski parking d.o.o., a company that manages parking lots in Šibenik, with all marked parking lots.
