National Park Krka
The National Nature Park Krka consists of the area in which the river Krka from the origin near the town Knin fleds to the Adriatic Sea near Sibenik. The river struggles through the mountains in the inland over about 75 km to the coast. At several places there are waterfalls and rapids. The biggest waterfalls are the Roski Slap with a hight of about 26 m. and wide about 29 m. and Skradinski Buk, the biggest calcstone plateau waterfall of Europa about 46 m. high and more than 100 m. wide. The river ends in the bay of Sibenik with a lenght of 9 km. and is then going over in the Adriatic Sea.
In the National Park are 2 cultural and historic interesting monuments, the Franciscane monastery on the island Visovac and the pittoresk village Skradin with its parks and the Krka monastery. The village as a whole is protected as a cultural monument.
A perfect daytrip since you can drive through the inland to Sibenik and drive back along the coast with splendid panorama's over sea and very interesting village's like Primosten, Rogoznica and Vinisce.
It is far more attractive NOT to follow the official traffic signs to the parking area of the NP Krka but instead to drive to the village SKRADIN and park your car as close to the harbour as possible. You can buy your entrance ticket here but if the waiting lines in the village are very long you can go direct to the boat and buy your ticket at the entrance of the National Park. From there you walk over the bridge with a magnificent overall view of the waterfall to the other side and start climbing many stairs up. There are allways places between the stairs to rest before going on, so it is very doable to walk around the falls in about 1.30 hours through an astonishing natural woodland.
