The area surrounding Šibenik is well connected with its many roads leading to other major cities and towns in the Republic of Croatia: Zagreb, Rijeka, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik, but also European destinations.

You can reach it by car from several directions:

Direction Zagreb

A1, the main Croatian motorway connecting cities and towns in Dalmatia with the inland, connects Zagreb and Šibenik, and is part of the European V and X corridors, continuing to Ljubljana, Vienna, Budapest or Belgrade, and further on to Istanbul or Athens. Parallel to the motorway runs the state toll-free Lika highway (D1) that passes through Knin and leads to Split.

Direction Rijeka

From Rijeka you can take the A7 motorway that connects to the A1 in Bosiljevo or the D8, the picturesque coastal Adriatic highway, that connects the north and the south parts of the Adriatic, passes by Dubrovnik, and ends in the far south of Montenegro.


European route E65 that begins in Malmö, Sweden, passes through Zagreb, Rijeka, Split and Dubrovnik and ends in Chaniá, Greece also passes through the county.
