Krka National Park is the most popular mainland attraction in Dalmatia, next to Split and Dubrovnik. Since it is only 1 hour and 30 min away from Split with a minivan, it is also the most popular land tour from Split.
Besides Krka waterfalls, we also stop in Šibenik or Trogir for sightseeing on our way back to Split which depends on the traffic.
Krka National Park
National Park Krka is rich and preserved ecosystem with its seven waterfalls, exceptional natural value, crystal clear water and stunning scenery which will leave you speechless.
National Park is intertwined with signs, wooden bridges and walkways which will help you explore every part of this mesmerizing place. It is located within the territory of Šibenik-Knin County and encompasses an area of 109 square kilometers along the Krka River.
The river, with its travertine waterfalls, cascades and total drop in altitude of 242 m, is a natural and karst phenomenon.
Besides watermills, ethno museum, small stone houses and the first hydroelectric power station in Europe, highlights of Krka National Park include Skradinski Buk, Roški Slap and Island of Visovac.
