National park Krka

National park Krka covers the area along the flow of river Krka, which springs three kilometers northeast of Knin and it passes through the deep and vivid 75 km long canyon forming deafening falls – Krčić, Risnjak, Miljacka, the Roški slap Falls (26) and the famous Skradinski buk Falls (the Krka Falls 46m), the greatest calcareous travertine barrier in Europe. The lower Krka flows through Prukljansko jezero lake and flows into 9 km long bay – Šibenski zaljev. In NP Krka, two cultural and historic monuments stand out: the Franciscan monastery on the island of Visovac and the Krka monastery and the most important town in the group of picturesque towns on the park area is Skradin – the town protected as a cultural monument.
