In this first part of the Krka National Park images you'll see our travel to the actual highlight of the trip: the waterfall(s) called Skradin Buk. The journey to it, leads you through awesome nature on walking paths. Of course the best parts are when you step away from the marked path, and that's where most of these images were taken actually. In the upcoming part you'll see the surprise that awaits you at the end of the trip to the waterfalls.

About the Park

The Krka National Park encompasses an area of 109 square kilometers along the Krka River. The Park is a spacious, largely unchanged region of exceptional and multifaceted natural value, and includes one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. You arrive on top of the hill, where you can park your car (this is also the place where the regularly scheduled bus from the city Sibenik drops you off). There you pay the entrance fee, and can take a bus into the valley, or, as we did, take a hike through the nature.

Along the Way

Nature lovers will enjoy this park a lot. There is something incredible to see at every corner. This amazing place houses swamps, pathways, lakes, rivers, wide spaces and thick, jungle like, corners. The attractions and facilities available are various footpaths, sightseeing tours and presentations, boat trips, souvenir shops, a museum, and restaurants. There are also several archeological remains of unpreserved fortresses in the park's vicinity dating back to as far as the Roman times.


There are many small waterfalls located along the way, and also lookout spots from which you can take shots like the one that follows. Bring lots of water and also food with you. The prices they charge at the entrance are absurd. You will also discover many resting spots where you can take a break. Traveling to the waterfalls takes an hour to an hour and a half.
