Velika Mrdakovica - Arauzona

According to the finds and its position, some identify Velika Mrdakovica with Arauzona, a Liburnian settlement described by Plinius in his travelogues. Judging by the rich finds of metal buckles and jewellery, old money and fragments of glass and ceramics, it is quite safe to say so.

Channel-Harbour

This locality was protected in 1974. The protected landscape of the Channel-Harbour encompasses the area from the Sibenik Bridge to the end of the Channel of St. Anthony, more precisely to the fortress of St. Nicholas with the accompanying surrounding sea area. No one has yet passed through the Channel of St. Anthony without experiencing awe at this rare sight of beauty. On the Sibenik side, at the start of the channel, stand the rules of old towers erected during the 16th century.

Approaching as we did by sea in a small cruiser you first get a sight of the formidable fortress which stands at the entrance to the narrow channel. Passing interesting rock formations and caves you gradually enter the harbour. All very, very impressive and no wonder would-be attackers failed totally to get in.
