The Arrival to the National Park Krka

If you want to visit the krka waterfalls, it’s best to use the boat or bus. However, if you are sporty, it’s also possible to come by foot. We arrived from Skradin via boat. Depending on the season, they usually go about every hour. So you can plan the length of your stay individually. As we visited Primošten before, we decided to only visit “Skradinski bug”. You will find a price list with all important information at the official website. Tip: As there are always a lot of tourists at the Krka waterfalls, it’s best to visit them off-season.

A fascinating natural Landscape – the National Park Krka

The nationalpark Krka consists of seven waterfalls in total. If you arrive by boat, you are able to visit the biggest one, the “Skradinsiki bug” right at the beginning. This waterfall consists of 17 steps and has a height of about 45 metres. On hot days, it’s even possible to take a bath in the lowest basin. Along the waterfalls, there are also a lot of mills and historic houses that can be visited.

There are many trees around which provide shade. And although you have to climb some steps, there are a lot of possibilities to take a break, have a seat, and snacks while enjoying an amazing view over the landscape.
