109 square kilometers of sheer nature, Krka National Park is the seventh national park in Croatia. A magical place of gorges and waterfalls with a rich habitat, the park was formed to protect Krka river and the surrounding ecosystem.
A relaxing place for all the visitors and the area around the waterfall has the second highest density of lavender in Europe.
Skradinski Buk waterfall
Definitely the most attractive part of the national park, this massive waterfall is formed in three levels and the effects caused by the play of light on whirlpools make Skradinski buk one of the most beautiful calcium carbonate waterfalls in Europe.
A ria is the mouth of a river that flows into the sea. The low levels of pollution has been a boon to Krka ria's extremely rich bio-diversity.
At Roski Slap, one can enjoy hiking trails that offer scenic views of the national park as you walk around.
