What You will experience?

After we leave Split enjoy a pleasant ride from Split to Krka National park. Since Krka is just over an hour away from Split (90 kilometers), it is one of the best getaways you could plan. Soon, we reach Skradin town. After a short walk in the city, you will embark on the boat that will take us up the river entrance of the park. Inside the park enjoy time by walking on education trails, exploration of the park and relaxing near the falls. If you ask us, there is plenty to see inside Krka National park, but as time is limited, there are some attractions must-see. Above all, don’t miss the opportunity to swim under the Krka waterfalls.

The Skradinski Buk waterfall

Skradinski Buk is the longest waterfall on the Krka River, and one of the best-known natural beauties of Croatia. The cascades are composed of travertine barriers, islands, and lakes. They can be viewed throughout the entire year thanks to a network of paths and bridges that enable comfortable and safe walking. Several renovated water mills, rolling mills, and washing columns that for centuries have utilized the power of the river are also located at the Skradinski Buk.

 Visovac Island

Is among Croatia’s most valuable natural and cultural values. The Franciscan Monastery of Our Lady of Mercy, and the Church of Our Lady of Visovac, have stood here since 1445. With their magnificent grounds, they form a unique entity. The monastery houses a valuable archaeological collection, a collection of historical church linens and dishes and a rich library, with several historical manuscripts, valuable books, and incunabula. Due to the centuries of worship of the Mother of God, this island is often called Our Lady’s Island. Visovac has always attracted pilgrims, who today arrive via the organized boat excursions of Krka National Park.

Roski Slap

Is also called the ‘vast waterfall’, and is made up of a 22.5 m high main waterfall and countless backwaters, cascades, and travertine islands. Roški slap is situated about 36 km downstream of the Krka River spring. The start of the barrier is made up of a series of small cascades (called the ‘necklace’ by the locals), followed by numerous backwaters and islets.  Between Roški waterfall and Oziđana pećina cave, there are 517 wooden steps. Over the waterfall, there is a road that dates back to Roman times. Throughout most of Roški’s slap, the natural environment is pristine and of great interest to nature lovers. On the left bank are a series of attractive water mills, several of which have been restored and returned to their original function. The complex of water mills at Roški slap is among the most interesting and prized ethnographic monuments in Dalmatia and Croatia.
