Discover this natural area, and take advantage of several opportunities to get beautiful images of the gorgeous surroundings. Along the way, you’ll pass the well-known Skradinski Buk waterfalls, where you can even take a dip if you so choose. For photographers and those who enjoy the outdoors, this is a utopia. If you want to escape the bustle of Croatian towns, you will undoubtedly spend a calm time admiring the tranquility of this lovely park.
Krka National Park lies about 10km inland from Sibenik in this part of Dalmatia. Named after the Krka River, the Park covers an area of just over 142 square km and includes two-thirds of the river itself. The top attraction of the Park is its magnificent waterfalls, including the famous Skradinski Buk falls which are one of Croatia’s most famous sights.
The national park is a vast and primarily unaltered area of exceptional natural value, including one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. The purpose of the park is primarily to serve science, culture, education, and recreation, while tourism activities have also been introduced for its visitors.
Features of Krka National Park krka waterfall
There’s a wide variety of both flora and fauna in the Park. Over 800 species of plantlife have been identified as being present in the National Park. Much of the animal life lives, unsurprisingly, in and around the waters of the Krka River which is home to different amphibian and reptile creatures. You will also be able to see many different bird species (there are over 200), and possibly some of the 18 different species of bat who call the Park their home
Including the submerged part of the river at the mouth, the Krka River is 72.5 km long, making it the 22nd longest river in Croatia.
The tiny island of Visovac in the Krka river was settled by Franciscan monks in 1445, who originally built a monastery in that year (later demolished, then rebuilt in the 18th century) and a church in 1576. The monastery contains a number of well-preserved artefacts and a library.
