Krka National Park encompasses the area along the course of the Krka River, which flows through a deep and picturesque canyon for over 75 km and creates waterfalls– Bilusic buk, Miljacka, Brljan, Rosnjak, Manojlovacki slap, Roski slap and the fantastic Skradinski buk (Krka falls 46 m). Here spills Krka over the 17 cascades which are formed by travertine barriers. Visiting this part of NP you can view the cascades on a leisurely and safe walk along the walking trails and wooden bridges.
Start this trip at the place and time of your choice.Upon arriving to the NP entrance, you will head to Skradinski Buk, the last of seven waterfalls on the beautiful Krka River. Skradinski Buk isn’t actually a single waterfall but rather a long series of cascades that spill over countless travertine rock formations. In total, the water tumbles nearly 46m into a crystal-clear pool before making its way out to the Adriatic Sea.The forest of conifers and hornbeams that crowds the riverbank is just as spectacular, as is the surrounding vegetation. There are low thickets, reedy wetlands and open grasslands with flowering plants like scorpion senna's and chimney bellflowers.Because the national park is strictly protected, it supports abundant wildlife. You may spot sleek otters playing in the water, colorful Cleopatra butterflies flitting about, and a variety of indigenous and migratory birds. More than 200 avian species nest in Krka National Park, including the regal golden eagle and lightning-fast peregrine falcon.Following a guided walking tour of the waterfall area, you will have free time to explore on your own before it’s time to rejoin with your guide for the drive back.
