Enjoy nature at its best

There are several places of interest in the Krka National Park. Archeological remains of fortresses from Roman times, the Monastery on the island of Visovac, boat trips, sightseeing tours, a museum and more.

Enjoy this beautiful natural area on one of the many footpaths or take an escorted tour. Cycling, walking and canoeing are readily available and swimming is allowed in some areas too.

One of the most attractive parts of the park is Skradinski buk. A huge, clear, natural pool with waterfalls at one end and cascades at the other. Skadinski Buk is considered to be one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Europe. There are three waterfalls along the Krka river and a total of 17 waterfalls within the park.

Roški Slap, located near Miljevci, and is the second most popular attraction of the Krka National Park. These waterfalls can be visited throughout the year. The best way to reach Roški Slap is to take one of the excursion boats operated by the Krka National Park, although the falls can also be reached via a public road.

There’s a wide variety of both flora and fauna in the Park. Over 800 species of plant life can be found here. Much of the animal life is found in and around the waters of the Krka River which is home to a range of amphibians and reptiles. There are over 200 species of birds here ideal for the enthusiast.

Most people visit from Šibenik, but the two most popular starting points are Skradin and Lozovac at the southern end. The other three entrances are at Roški Slap, Krka Monastery and Burnum which can all be reached by car.

Skradin is a pretty little riverside town with a combination of brightly painted and bare stone houses on its main street and a ruined fortress towering above. Apart from the opportunity to see the town itself, the advantage to starting in Skradin is that the park admission includes a boat ride through the canyon to Skradinski Buk. The disadvantage is that there can be queues for the boats in summer.

From the Lozovac entrance, buses (free with park admission) shuttle visitors from the large car park (also free) down to Skradinski Buk. Neither the free boats or buses operate from November to February, but in these months you're able to drive right down to the falls.
