Krka National Park is one of eight Croatian National parks (Plitvice lakes, Brijuni, Kornati, Mljet, Paklenica, Risnjak, Northern Velebit and Krka) and it is named after the river Krka that it encloses. It is located in central Dalmatia, near the city of Šibenik. It was proclaimed a national park back in 1985. The Krka National Park is a vast, mainly unchanged region of extraordinary natural value and includes many preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. Skradinski Buk waterfall is one of two main waterfalls on Krka river, although there are seven amazing waterfalls on Krka river. It is the lowest and the longest one. Skradinski Buk is considered one of the most beautiful calcium carbonate waterfalls in Europe due to its richness in geomorphological forms, ecosystem and numerous impressive light effects in the whirlpools. Roški Slap is the second main waterfall on Krka river, particularly appealing due to its cascades. There is a road over the waterfall which dates back to Roman times. One of the main attractions other than the waterfalls is a small island of Visovac, which is home to a Catholic Monastery founded by Franciscans back in 1445. There are numerous facilities available like souvenir shops, museums, bars and restaurants. National Park has five entrances, but there are the two main entrances at Skradinski Buk and Roski Slap. For those who come by car, there is a free parking nearby the entrances.
From June till September National Park is opened from 09:00 till 20:00.
