Natural heritage

This natural and karstic phenomenon created seven travertine waterfalls: Bilušića buk, Brljan, Manojlovački slap, Rošnjak, Miljacka slap, Roški slap and Skradinski buk, the highest cascade in the Mediterranean (46m).

It is overflowing with unique and abundant flora, 860 different plant taxa. The total of 221 bird species has been recorded in the Park’s area, among which, in the most significant number, are nesting birds. Some species stay there only during spring and autumn migrations, and as a result, this protected area was included in important ornithological regions of Europe

Cultural heritage

Within the national park boundaries, there are about 20 archaeological sites from all periods, Roman times and Medieval.

To use the power of water that was so abundant, and to turn it into useful work was the primary goal of the people who settled along the river’s banks. The Krka River is living proof of the use of natural resources to serve the local population, as seen in the many mills that once operated along the river’s course, some of which are still standing today. These mills were of exceptional importance for the life of the population throughout Dalmatia, in the Middle Ages and later.

Today, preserved mills are  first-rate tourist attraction. The mills at Skradinski buk and Roški slap, present the old kužina (kitchen), mill with complete mill inventory, the miller’s room, the weaver’s loom, kovačija and štala (carriage room and stables).

National Park Krka is open all year round and accessible by waterway, local roads, hiking, and biking trails. You can book a private day trip or group excursion from Trogir and Split area.
