KRKA NATIONAL PARK
Krka is the seventh national park in Croatia known for its large number of waterfalls. It is named after the river Krka which is part of the park. The national park is located in central Dalmatia, 90 km away from Split. It covers the area along the river Krka, which springs at the foot of the highest mountain in Croatia, Dinara, and flows through a 75 km long canyon. Its beauty is a natural karst phenomenon, which is recommended to visit in spring and summer because it is in full glory then, and you can refresh yourself in clear water. The Jaruga hydroelectric power plant below the Skradinski Buk (biggest waterfall) is the second oldest hydroelectric power plant in the world and first in Europe. It was built in 1895, just three days after the world’s first hydroelectric plant at Niagara Falls.
When driving to the national park, the guide gives you all the instructions about the trip and historical, interesting facts regarding the places you pass on the way to the park.
ETHNO VILLAGE & WATERMILLS
While walking around the park you can visit a beautiful ethno village that offers a real insight into history as it once was. A blacksmith shop, souvenir shop and museum are just some of the attractions that this village offers.
After time spent in the park, our guide will accompany you on a boat ride which is really the highlight of the day.
When getting off the boat you arrive in Skradin, a city that is one of the oldest in our area and the capital for Roman army drills. You will have some free time to take a walk through the little town, climb a fortress and enjoy panoramic views, grab a cocktail or lunch in one of the bars and restaurants or take a swim at the beach where the sea and Krka river mix. Enjoy everything day has to offer and join us in making some new memories.

You can swim in the National Park Krka waterfalls, but in 2020 it will be the last year that this will be allowed. From 2021, swimming will be forbidden, but in that case, you can always spend time on the Skradin beach, which is a famous sandy beach for all the park visitors.
