Extending along the 73km River Krka, the Krka National Park runs from the Adriatic near Šibenik inland to the mountains of the Croatian interior. It’s a magical place of waterfalls and gorges, with the river gushing through a karstic canyon 200m deep. Sights built by humans are also a major draw of the region, the area’s remoteness attracting monks who constructed their monasteries here.The park has five main entrances, at Skradin, Lozovac, Roški Slap, Krka Monastery and Burnum – all are accessible by car.
Roski Slap (slap being Croatian for waterfall) is another famous sight within Krka National Park. A series of 12 waterfalls in a space of 450 metres, the largest is just over 22 metres in height and 60 metres in width.
Undoubtedly the best way of seeing the sights of the Park is with a boat excursion – a number of these leave from Skradin. Not only will you be able to see the beauty of the Park up close (and in a relaxed manner) but these excursions include a chance to stop off and wander on footpaths along the water, as well as presentations and talks and other items of interest.
