Location of Tribunj
Tribunj lies west from the centre of Šibenik in the middle of Dalmatia and as a western neighbour of Vodice. It is 12 km in a beeline and 17 km on the public road from Šibenik. The special feature of the town is that it consists of two parts. The larger part of it is on the mainland, while a smaller one, the historic heart of Tribunj is to be found on a peninsula. The most important public institutions, such as the municipality, the tourism office, the post office, the parish, the cultural house, and many restaurants are on the peninsula. The two parts are connected by a stone bridge that was built by the refugees of neighbouring villages.
History of Tribunj
Tribunj was first mentioned under the name of „Jurjevgrad” in 1298 when the diocese of Šibenik was established and had a total of 167 inhabitants. Its old name originated from the medieval castle that was erected on Saint Nicholas hill. The majority of Tribunj’s population migrated to the peninsula to avoid Turkish attacks because they could be defended much better from there. The main revenue source of the population was lime burning in the 18th century. Also, a lot of cherries were produced here that people from Zara bought in order to produce liqueur from it. Until the end of the First World War, the presence of Austrian power was most influential. Austrians built a port at the coast from the white stones of the castle. Although tourism is very significant in Tribunj, fishing and olive production are the main sources of people’s living.
Beaches in Tribunj
The clean and blue sea and the rich flora and fauna are ideal for swimming and underworld safaris. Rupa bay to the west of the village and many other small accesses to the sea include several beaches.
From many beaches, Sovlja, which is surrounded by concrete on 200 metres, is the most beautiful and popular. It is ideal for those arriving by a smaller boat too because they offer also mooring. The beach is especially ideal for sunbathers because not only parasols can be rented here, but due to the plants, you also get natural shadow here. It is fully equipped with beach tools, e.g. showers and dressing cabins.
This beach is the longest in Tribunj with 300 metres. Besides the Bristak beach with small pebbles is ideal for families with kids, because the water level is getting gradually deeper. The waves are calm, which makes the water pleasant for swimming or you can sunbathe on the round pebbles. There are also beach bars and a restaurant and a parking lot is available on foot, but the beach is also easy to reach on foot.
Zamalin beach is covered by small pebbles, but it has crystal clear water and its coast slightly slopes. Access to the sea is made easier by special stairs that were built at some points. You can find a cool shadow among the pine trees on hot days. A snack bar, a café, and an ice cream bar can be found in the neighbourhood of the beach.
Main attractions in Tribunj
You can find many cultural and historic places in the peninsula, e.g. the church dedicated to the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is the oldest church, built-in 1435 in Tribunj. It is a simple, small church with a single nave, a cross-shaped opening on its front and a blade wall bell tower above it that has one bell. Today only one mass is held here annually and the church rather hosts exhibitions. The other historic church is the Saint Nicholas church, which is very popular among wedding couples.
The diocese of Šibenik initiated the church construction in 1452, but according to sources of that age it couldn’t be built before 1475 due to lack of finances. The Virgin Mary church that was built in 1732 and renovated in 2002 stands next to the parish. The parish church of The Assumption of Mary that was built between 1883 and 1885, stands at the foot of the Saint Nicholas mountain across the peninsula. The town’s inhabitants mainly live from tourism, agriculture and fishing.
