    Krka National Park, Skradinski Buk waterfallsWhat you need to know about Krka National Park

    Krka was proclaimed as a National park on January 24, 1985. It is famous for a large number of lakes and waterfalls and it’s the seventh national park in Croatia and it gained its name by the river Krka which is a part of the park.

    The National Park is located in central Dalmatia, only a few kilometers from the city of Šibenik. The hydroelectric power plant Jaruga under the waterfall of Skradinski buk is the second oldest hydropower plant in the world and the first in Europe. It was built just three days after the world’s first hydropower plant on the Niagara Falls!

    The park covers area of 109 square kilometres with preserved ecosystems, untouched flora and fauna with 1022 plant species.

    The larger waterfalls are Bilušići buk(19,6m), Brljanski slap(15,5m), Manojlovac(59,6m), Rošnjak(8,4m), Miljacka(23,8m), Roški slap(26,5m) and Skradinski buk(45,7m).

    Miljacka waterfall is not available for visitors because it is situated near Miljacka hydro-power plant. Near the waterfall there is also the cave of Miljacka II, where there are numerous endemic and protected underground animals.

    But the most beautiful and Krka’s largest waterfall is Skradinski buk. Located just by the end of the Krka river, near Skradin, this is one of the most famous Croatian natural sights. Skradinski buk is the main attraction of our Krka Waterfalls tour and we’ll take an easy walk across its paths where you will feel the unique microscope life together with its magical sounds, lights and colors, encircling numerous types of trammel barriers and aquatic habitats.

    Skradinski buk consists of 17 stairs, a total length of up to 800 meters, while the height difference reaches just over 45 meters. There is a lake at the bottom of the waterfall where many visitors chill during the warmer part of the year. This is also the most popular part of Krka NP and here you will find many souvenir shops, workshops, restaurants and ethnographic collections which are a part of the old mills.
