National Park KRKA


NATIONAL PARK KRKA

is located in Šibenik-Knin County and covers an area of 109 km² of the most beautiful course of the river Krka and the lower course of the river Čikola.
The area was declared a national park in 1985. The national park includes one or more preserved or slightly altered ecosystems. With the submerged part of the Krka estuary, it is about 72.5 km long and springs at the foot of the Dinara mountain. With seven travertine waterfalls and a total drop of 224 m, Krka is a natural and karst phenomenon. Skradinski buk, the longest travertine barrier on the river Krka and one of the most famous beauties in Croatia, stands out with its beauty.

Two cultural and historical monuments stand out in the Krka National Park: the Franciscan Monastery on the island of Visovac and the Krka Monastery. Visovac is home to the Krka expansion office, where green water has dissolved the karst plateau, creating a harmonious blend of natural and historical heritage. Surrounded by the hilly Miljevac plateau and the beautiful Rup field, which unite beauty with the pain of the laborers in the lap of the blue of its lake, it defies the storms of historical misfortunes through the centuries. The irresistible, charming cliff in the abundance of nature, which the monks have worked diligently for centuries to turn into an island full of trees, colorful flowers, fruits and vegetables, irresistibly attracts tourists.

It is first mentioned in documents in the 14th century. Around 1445, the Franciscans settled on the island, expanded the island and engaged in science and education, built a monastery and church in 1576, which was renovated in the 18th century.
