Speaking of Croatia, you've probably heard of Plitvice? However, have you heard of the Krka National Park?

I want to tell you a little more about this natural pearl of Croatia which hides spectacular waterfalls.

Can you imagine a place without stress? A place where you will never feel tense? A place where instead of the sound of city traffic you only hear the soothing sounds of waterfalls and the singing of birds? This is exactly the Krka National Park.

This place is amazing. As soon as you step on her territory, you will suddenly feel a peace that you have not felt for a whole year. Looking around you will notice only smiling people who enthusiastically walk through the park and watch these amazing scenes of untouched nature - with countless waterfalls and beautiful natural greenery.

Paradise on Earth - that would be the best description of Krka. That is why it is not surprising that the famous American film "Winnetou" as well as the world's most popular series ever "Game of Thrones" was shot at this location. Even the world-famous Stjepan Hauser from 2CELLOS recorded his music video at this location.

Where is the Krka National Park?

Krka National Park is located on the coast of the Republic of Croatia within the region of Dalmatia. It is about 10 km by road from Šibenik and about 90 km from Split - the second largest city in Croatia.

The road distance from Zadar is about 97 km, while the distance from Dubrovnik is about 300 kilometers.

Now that you know where the park is located, it’s time to introduce you to the amazing content located in the park. Are you ready?

What to see in the Krka National Park?

1. Skradinski Buk

Skradinski buk is the main attraction within the Krka National Park, it is the longest waterfall and one of the most famous natural beauties in Croatia. This is where the travertine waterfalls end, which creates beautiful scenes

Within this place there are 2 kilometers of connected paths and bridges. Walking, all the time you will be rewarded with a superb and beautiful view of the Krka waterfalls, and the clear water will allow you to see the wonderful flora and fauna.

Yes, this is one of the main locations where the popular Game of Thrones series was filmed.

2. Roški Slap

Roški slap waterfall is the second largest waterfall within the national park - its height is 45.7 meters. This waterfall is very unique. It starts with a lot of smaller waterfalls that descend and form several massive breathtaking waterfalls.

At this location there are a large number of old mills that you can visit. Some mills have even been refurbished and used, so you’ll be able to smell warm baked bread the old-fashioned way at every turn.

I couldn't stand it so I have to tell you a secret right away. The photos in front of Roški slap waterfall are amazing, post them on social networks and prepare for the largest number of likes so far.

3. The islet of Visovac and the Visovac monastery

The islet of Visovac is one of the most important natural and cultural values of the Republic of Croatia. Since 1445, it has housed the Franciscan monastery of Our Lady of Mercy and the Church of Our Lady of Visovac, which in combination with the beautiful landscape of lakes and greenery create a beautiful ambience for the eyes.

It is impossible to describe how beautiful this islet is so let the picture do it for me. You must have heard of that one: "A picture speaks a thousand words!"

4. Oziđana Cave

What makes Krk National Park unique in the world is that in such a beautiful place of nature there are such important historical finds.

The walled cave is the former home of a prehistoric man who lived in it as far back as 6500 years ago. Numerous objects found in the cave are of exceptional world importance, and the cave itself will leave you breathless.

It is not surprising why prehistoric man chose this cave as his home, because in addition to providing him with security, it also provides a unique view of the entire park, which you will be able to enjoy.

5. Roman Military camp Burnum

There is no end to the enthusiasm when it comes to the Krka National Park.

Near Manojlovac, which is the largest waterfall within the park with its 60 meters, there is a pearl of ancient history - the Roman military camp Burnumu. It experienced its greatest prosperity and expansion during the reign of Emperor Vespasian, who was known for having the famous Roman Colosseum built.

If you close your eyes for just a moment, you will be able to imagine yourself as the emperor or empress of the glorious Roman Empire visiting its loyal soldiers.

6. Krka Monastery

The Krka Monastery is a beautiful building surrounded by nature and the spiritual center of Orthodox believers. It is first mentioned in written documents as far back as 1402.

Until the 17th century, it belonged to the Franciscans who took refuge in nearby Zadar due to frequent attacks by the Turks, and shortly after that the monastery was soon given for use to the newly arrived Orthodox population.

Next to today's monastery there is a church built in the Byzantine style, while below the church there are ancient Roman catacombs from the first century AD.

7. More nature and nature

Krka National Park contains a total of 7 waterfalls. The flowing water is so clear that while walking you will notice a large number of fauna and flora in the water.

That nature is untouched is evidenced by the fact that river otters live in the Krka National Park, choosing only the purest water sources for their habitat. Although they are threatened with extinction in the world, within the Krka National Park they have the status of a deity where they enjoy their peace.

Tips for visiting Krka

1. Bring a camera:

The park contains so many beauties that you will want to remember forever. And the best way to make something permanent? Well of course, photos and videos. With the help of the camera, make lasting memories that will forever remind you of the amazing shots you will see.

3. Pee freely:

Inside the park there are a large number of toilets that are free, and in front of the entrance there is one toilet that costs five kuna.

How to get to the Krka National Park?

Croatia is well connected by road, and it is also the easiest and best way to get to the park. Krka National Park is very easily reached from a number of places - Sibenik is the closest large town to the park, although both Split and Zadar are also reasonably close.

The nearest airport is Split Airport, at just under an hour’s drive away; Zadar Airport is just over an hour’s drive away. From either airport, transfer first to the main bus station in that city and then travel on to Skradin, which is where one of the entrances to the Park is.

If you find that bus timetables don’t quite work out from where you’re traveling from, we’d recommend first traveling to Sibenik and then getting a local bus from there.

In the period from 6 to 9 months, when the park is visited by the largest number of tourists, large queues are often formed at the station and already in the morning all seats on the bus are sold out for all tours on that day.

This situation is also exploited by greedy locals, who buy tickets in advance and try to sell them to tourists "on the black market" at a price that will cost you as if you rented a private plane, and not that you want to come by bus. So don't fall for it.

Since the park is located right next to the highway exit, one of the best ways to visit the park is to rent a car. Here on our site you can still rent a car at a special price with FREE cancellation up to three days from the selected date.

You can also visit Krka with our organized transport to Krka.

Amazing experience!
Boris, our tour guide had great knowledge of the area and a great attitude and disposition while guiding us. He even offered to look after our stuff while we were swimming by the waterfalls! The bus was comfortable and equipped with AC, it was also sparkling clean! The boat ride and mini city visit truly complemented the experience. Would highly recommend!!

Very nice and on time
They were very organised, kind and on time! I loved to go on this tour, it was much simpler to access the site with the company’s bus. They left us right on the beginning of the pedestrian path and it was just perfect. Also, we had a flight in the evening of the same day and so punctuality was very important and they filled the criteria also on the way back!
