Šibenik has an extremely important traffic position, good connections which provide direct communication. The most important route is the road along the Adristic coast with its diverging roads to Drniš (33 km) and Knin (55km) and further to the Croatian hinterland. Another important traffic route is the railway which leads towards Zagreb and Split. Air traffic is based at Split Airport (45 km away from Šibenik, in Kaštela) and Zadar Airport “Zemunik” (50 km away from Šibenik). Newly built highway “Dalmatina” connects Šibenik with other parts of Croatia as well as Europe.
