About 860 plant species and 220 animal special, 110 km² area, and one of the biggest bat colonies in europe – the national park Krka has so much more to offer than just breathtaking waterfalls. Therefore, a visit of this fascinating natural landscape is a must when in Croatia. In this blogpost, I’m going to show you the most beautiful places and give some useful advice for your stay.
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.
The “Skradinski bug” is about 800 metres long. A tour around this waterfall takes about an hour and definitely isn’t as exhausting as one would imagine. 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.
As we unfortunately didn’t have a lot of time, we were only able to visit a small part of the national park. However, we definitely will come back to see the rest.
