In the dry lime stone Krkaarea of the Dalmatian hinterland the Krka River makes its way towards the sea - a magnificent natural phenomenon. At the foot of the mount Dinara, in the eastern part of the Knin field, it cuts its way through the narrow canyon and flows into the Adriatic sea at the Sibenik port. With the sunken part of its mouth its length is 72km. For its great natural, scientific and cultural value, it was proclamed The National Park in 1985. The jewel of the Krka National Park is definitely the islet of Visovac situated in the middle of the Visovac lake formed by the River Krka. The River Krka has seven lime barriers among which the best known is Skradinski buk, 45.7m high and its 17 cascades are 800m long. The waterfalls are 200-400m wide. Other best known waterfall is Roski, 25.5m high. The quantity of water that falls from the Skradinski buk cascades is 55m3/s and during heavy rains it rises up to 350m3/s.

KrkaThis aboundance in water results in rich vegetation, so that along its course some 200 species of the Mediaterranean and Sub-Mediterranean plants can be found. The air along the River is extremely pure and is scented with exotic mixture of water and plants' scent. In the sunny days above the Skradinski buk a rainbow shows the spectacular colours in the spectrum so, instead of running underneath it, you can take a bath under the rainbow if you are romantic enough! By the peculiar beauty of its long canyon, its cascades, spectacular lime forms, caves, green valleys and rich vegetation, Krka is one of the most beautiful and most popular excursion area in Dalmatia. Each year thousands of visitors come by boat from Skradin KrkaThe unique natural assets are complemented by the vast choice of the gastronomic delicacies like grilled fish and meat, local products and souvenirs and the old and renewed watermills which are opened for tourists to see the local people in their national costumes at the traditional craft of weaving - just like they used to do it centuries ago. The smaller towns of Kistanje, Vrbnik, Puljane, Citluk, and Mratovo are all located quite near the National Park of Krka where guests can also find accommodations as well as a restaurant or two. The cities of Sibenik and Vodice are located around 30km away from the National Park of Krka. Hunting and fishing are both strictly forbidden inside the park, but that is why the area surrounding the park is perfect for enjoying these activities. Rural tourism offers accommodations in apartments or pensions and some offer meals.Krka National park is a worth to be visited durin a relaxing sailing holiday in Croatia, along the Sibenik Riviera.
