Cathedral of St. James - Croatia

This lovely card was in my favorites wall and, like the previous slovenian card, this one was also sent by Sunny.
I've already had a different card of this cathedral but i like this one better.

Šibenik is a historic town in Croatia, located in central Dalmatia where the river Krka flows into the Adriatic Sea.

The central church in Šibenik, the Cathedral of St. James, is on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
Several successive architects built it completely in stone between 1431 and 1536, both in Gothic and in Renaissance style. The interlocking stone slabs of the Cathedral's roof were damaged when the city was shelled by Serbian forces in 1991. The damage has since been repaired. - in: wikipedia
