NP Krka

Hello everybody!

Would you like to swim under a mythical waterfall between fish in captivity of clean nature while watching an ancient town Skradin, and in the distance see glimpses of the sea? Croatian national park Krka is system of rapids, cascades and waterfalls, beneath which you can bath or swim. You can also do a boat river trip through canyon to the biggest waterfall Roški slap and to the islet Visovac where is a Franciscan monastery and museum. Yes, you know facts about Krka. But do you know details?

The last 20 km of canyon which once river Krka had carved on its way to the sea is now flooded, so it’s therefore possible to sail from the sea from Šibenik across Prokljansko lake around town Skradin to the most famous waterfalls of river Krka – Skradinski waterfalls. Up here you can be brought by boat starting in Šibenik or Skradin. Next cruise is prevented by skradinski waterfalls – Skradinski buk. It’s 400 m long rapids with a total high difference 45 m. Under these waterfalls is swimming permitted, too. You can get to Skradinski waterfalls from the parking Lozovac over the falls – bus will take you down. Part of the tour around falls is dedicated to lecture about still working water mills and water washers.

Trip through NP Krka can be extended by a boat trip from the port of Skradinski waterfalls of river Krka upstream. Cruise through the narrow canyon across Visovac lake to the impressive Roški waterfall – Roški slap is an experience you’ll never forget. The boat stops on Visovac lake at the isle of Visovac where is a Franciscan monastery with monastic library and beautiful park.

You can visit NP Krka on different places, for few hourse or an entire day. I recommend to visit these places:

Skradinski Buk – from parking Lozovac

Roški Slap – from Drniš or from a highway

Upper stream of river Krka – from Kistanje, Drniš or Knin

Manoljovac Slap – from Kistanje, Drniš or Knin

You can get to National park Krka from towns primošten, Biograd na Moru, Vodice, Murter… Turning to NP Krka is on the highway signed as ,,Nacionalni park Krka” before Šibenik.
