Krka National Park, Sibenik-Knin County

Packed with waterfalls, riverside trails, and vegetation, represents one of the island's foremost protected areas. Explore the national park's network of trails that crisscrosses its rugged terrain, then go for a dip in the pools surrounding the many waterfalls--the tallest of which rises to 27 m (89 ft) and cascades down multiple levels to the pool below. The park covers nearly the entire length of the river, giving you a view of the water almost wherever you go and allowing you to spot some of the many fish, birds, and reptiles that call the area home. Be sure to stop by the series of Orthodox monasteries, some from the 15th century, that dot the riverbank and islets within the park.

  • Absolutely beautiful, well worth the short hike in when the boat's not running. Very peaceful and photogenic! We saw it in the spring when the river was really full, took our breath away!  more »

  • Beautiful waterfalls. Pretty short hike that should be doable by anyone (not wheelchair accessible though). Interesting cultural and historic little exhibits. Great swimming at the bottom of the main waterfall (but be careful of the strong current and rocky bottom, especially with kids)
  • Extremely crowded. After paying into Park you still have to queue for over 20 minutes to go to the toilet and pay for the privilege. Very rocky underfoot, need shoes on all the time and no sunbeds or places to lie, just very dirty grass. No lockers to leave your belongings, so left at your own risk if you want to swim. Waterfalls are beautiful but they seriously need to cater for the thousands of people who attend every day
  • An amazing park full of waterfalls and with an incredible path through it full of beautiful spots. If you can try going around March as the ice from the mountains will melt and you can see the waterfalls full of water. Also once you reach the bottom area there are some shops and restaurants were for very little you can enjoy some pancakes or some traditional food. There's also a free restroom in the top and free fountains.
  • Come for a visit to Croatian greatest cultural, historical and above all natural heritage! The area of 111 km2 offering a lot to a common tourists will simply take your breath away : 7 waterfalls, 8 lakes, 6 old water mills, many medieval ruins awaiting you in one of 8 Croatian national parks!
  • It an amazing place. The best for recreation for recharging your batteries and the view is like heaven. From my oppinion is the best place I've ever seen in my life. It is worth it and it costs like nothing...I truly recommend you to visit. The Croatians done a very good job with this place. I recommend you to keep time to stay there for one day at least..
