National Park Krka
National Park Krka is located in Central Dalmatia, northeast from Šibenik, occupying the area of 109 square kilometres. It was declared a national park in 1985. The Krka River is a karst phenomenon with the length of 75 kilometres from its origin at Knin to the mouth at Šibenik, where it mouths into the Adriatic Sea. On its route it creates lakes, rapids and waterfalls, the most famous of which are Risnjak, Miljacka, Roški and the well-known Skradinski buk Waterfall, which is also the largest travertine barrier in Europe. Between the last two waterfalls there is the island of Visovac in the lake of the same name, and there is a cultural and historical monument – a Franciscan monastery with a valuable library. The monastery was built in 1576 and restored in the 18th century.
