• Hiking excursion NP Krka

    Krka National Park lies within Šibenik – Knin County, and covers a total area of 109 km² of the loveliest sections of the Krka River, and the lower course of the Čikola River.

    The national park is a vast and primarily unaltered area of exceptional natural value, including one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. Including the submerged part of the river at the mouth, the Krka River is 72.5 km long, making it the 22nd longest river in Croatia. It springs in the foothills of the Dinara mountain range, 2.5 km northeast of Knin. With its seven waterfalls and a total drop in altitude of 242 m, the Krka is a natural and karst phenomenon. The travertine waterfalls of the Krka River are the fundamental phenomenon of this river.

    Skradinski buk is the seventh, final, and longest travertine barrier on the Krka River. It is located approximately 13 kilometers downstream from Roški slap and a total of 49 kilometers downstream from the source. The growth of travertine barriers at Skradinski buk was caused by the unification of the waters of Krka River with the three kilometer lower current of the Čikola River at Roški slap, creating one of the most unusual and beautiful landscapes of the Krka National Park.
