NP Krka - Skradin

Krka - National Park

Krka, a river in Dalmatia, springs out of the western foot of Dinara Mountain and flows into the sea near Sibenik; length 72,5 km.
In limestone it forms a narrow and deep canyon (up to 200 m), flowing over traventine barriers and creating waterfalls; Roski Slap (25,5 m) and Skradinski Buk (37,5 m) the most beautiful of all.
Between Roski Slap and Skradinski Buk is Visovac lake with an islet and Franciscan monastery on it.
Downstream of Skradinski Buk is the Krka river estuary, about 20 km long, in which freshwater mixes with saltwater.
Skradin is one of the two entrances into the NP, from this side it is organized by boats along the river of Krka.

The Cathedral of St. Jacob

The Cathedral of St. Jacob is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in whole Croatia. It is unique example of Renaissance architecture, designed and built by most prominent European masters of the time.
