Go to Krka National Park and get half-price entry to one of the most beautiful parts of Croatia

Croatia’s stunning Krka National Park will be offering better-than-half-price entry to everyone who visits the park at the weekend during April. Instead of the usual April prices of 110 kuna (€15) for adults and 80 kuna (€11) for children, adults will pay just 50 kuna (€7) and children can enter for free.

The national park is named after the 73 km-long river Krka that forms its centrepiece. It’s a magical place of waterfalls and gorges, with the river gushing through a karstic canyon 200 m deep. Visitors can stroll along riverside boardwalks, swim in beautiful pools, bird-watch and take boat trips.

The area is also famous for its pretty riverside towns, historic water mills, isolated monasteries, ruined medieval fortresses and Roman military amphitheatre.

The promotion is part of the ‘Weekend Outdoors’ campaign, which also includes special cut-price menus at restaurants located near the Skradinski Buk and Roški Slap waterfalls. Visitors will also be able to take boat trips to Roški Slap, Krka Monastery, the Mother of Mercy Franciscan Monastery on Visovac island and the medieval fortresses of Nečven and Trošenj.
