National Park Krka is located on the river of Krka in central Dalmatia, near the cities Šibenik and Knin. With seven waterfalls and a length of more than 70 kilometers, this river represents a true gem of Dalmatia’s waters.
The first one in the row of seven cascades of Krka River is Bilušića buk. The last, biggest, and most recognized waterfall of Krka is the Skradinski buk. Due to the growth of the travertine barriers, the river of Krka formed a small lake at the bottom of the waterfall, creating a beautiful mixture of colors and sounds. You won’t be the only one loving this place; numerous species of birds found Krka to be their home and are enrichening this place with their chirping.
Bathing next to the Skradinski buk is a popular activity during hot summer days as the cold river water serves as the best refreshment after walking around the park.
The longest waterfall is the Manojlovački slap. During the colder months, this waterfall is around 60 meters long. During the summer, it dries up as all the water is going into the hydropower plant Miljacka.
The park was recognized as of great natural beauty in 1985 and since then it has become a popular destination for anyone wanting to discover inner Dalmatia. Even the oldest hydropower plant was built on Krka’s biggest waterfall, Skradinski buk.
There is more to Krka than just beautiful waterfalls and greenery. The Park also has a cave called Oziđana which gives you an insight into the lives of our ancestors in the Neolithic as well as the characteristic fauna of the underground world. Burnum, the amphitheater, and a military camp built in the Roman era is yet another location you must visit as a part of your trip. A true archeological gem is Ključica, a medieval fortress from the 13th century which overlooks the canyon of Čikola. Another medieval fortress that mustn’t be left out is Kamičak, located between the Roški waterfall and Visovačko lake. It can be seen from the Stinice – Roški slap – Oziđana trail as it is not adapted for close-up exploration.
Tours with boats are also available because some landmarks, such as the island of Visovac, are approachable only by boats. At a family house Kuželj on Visovac island you can take a break from exploring and let your kind learn about the natural wonders of Krka.
There are a few restaurants and souvenir shops around the park if you want to have lunch or bring a memory back home with you!
