Krka National Park

Small park located on Krka River, central Dalmatia

Krka National Park is one of the smallest in the country, coming in at only 109 square km. It borders the Krka River and includes part of the Cikola River. Numerous options for exploration exist in the park, particularly for plant lovers. Wild flowers can be found growing in profusion, while many varieties of wildlife can be found here, as well. The best time to view the park is during the spring and early summer, when the flowers are in bloom and the waters high.

that's the second most popular in Croatia.

Krka waterfalls

Krka National Park is a very scenic area with many small lakes and waterfalls. Although it was originally turned into a national park for scientific purposes, to study its ecosystems, its landmark waterfalls and the main lake were eventually made available to public for tourism purposes.

During the summer season, hundreds of visitors enjoy the clear waters in the water pool just below the falls. After Plitvice Lakes, it's the second most visited national park in Croatia, and one of the most picturesque.

Dedicated to nature

Krka National Park is dedicated to nature, offering its impressive limestone steps, rapids, and landscape for all to see.

The park is located in one of the quieter regions where you will find rugged mountains and a natural beauty that is quite diverse. The ancient coastal villages here have managed to preserve their cultural heritage, providing a perfect opportunity for exploration.

This national park is close to Šibenik and Knin towns, only a few kilometres away from Šibenik city, in the central Dalmatia region.

Krka National Park is also home to KRKA Ultra Challenge, a charity 50 and 80 kms marathon event, held in October. This Run 4 Diabetes event attracts international runners to the city of Skradin.
