KRKA NATIONAL PARK AND SKRADINSKI BUK
Krka National Park was developed around protecting the karst stunner that is the Krka River with its 7 travertine waterfalls. Krka National Park runs alongside the 73km River Krka, extending from the Adriatic near Šibenik to interior Croatia; in total, the park covers 109 square kilometers within Šibenik-Knin County.
Visitors find a stunning sequence of landscapes within the park including karstic canyon-bound gorges, limpid lakes, and sequences of waterfalls. Much like Plitvice National Park, Krka features tiers of cascades that interweave with the vegetation and landmarks.
The Skradinski buk waterfalls, Krka River’s longest waterfall and perhaps Krka National Park’s most famous, are a series of cascades composed of travertine barriers, lakes, and islands. Due to the national park’s network of bridges and pathways, Skradinski buk can be experienced from several, close viewpoints. Another well-known stretch of waterfalls can be found at Roški slap, the sixth Krka River cascade.
If you need a break from nature, or just want to spice it up, you can also find two historic monasteries within the park.
FUN FACT: If you visit the Krka National Park website, you can view some incredible sights in 360º panoramic view.
