Sibenik or Split?

One last question to ask. Which is better to see for beauty, sights and nice old feeling town? Sibenik or Split? Thanks!

We actually liked Sibenik more than Split, but that may have been a function of the fact that Sibenik exceeded our expectations (we had none, so we were delighted) while Split fell short of our expectations - it was utterly mobbed and didn't seem all that great, despite the glowing descriptions we had heard. Sibenik was relatively free of crowds, no sign of a cruise ship to be found, and we really liked it. We were only there for a few hours, which seemed about right. Expect LOTS of stairs - Sibenik seemed to be one of the more vertical cities we visited.
