Krka National Park

NP Krka is a beautiful karstic phenomenon with seven breathtaking waterfalls.

Stretching from the western foot of the Dinaric Range into the sea near Šibenik, the 73km long River Krka and its wonderful waterfalls define the landscape of Krka National Park. The waterfalls are a karstic phenomenon: the water has created an up to 200m deep canyon through limestone hills, making calcium carbonate on top of them. Moss and algae enable the calcium to stay carbonated and form a material called tufa. These growths create barriers in the river that produce spectacular waterfalls.

There are five main entrances to the park. As most people visit from Šibenik, the two most popular starting points are Skradin and Lozovac at the southern end. The other three entrances are at Roški Slap, Krka Monastery and Burnum, which can all be reached by car.

We definitely recommend visiting the The Skradinski Buk Ethno Village, trying out falconry and taking a boat trip to the small island of Visovac and checking out the monastery in the middle of the lake.
