NATIONAL PARK – KRKA
If you decide to visit Krka National Park from Biograd by using one of the rent-a-boats from our fleet, such as ZAR Formenti, BAT, BSC or SESSA Key Largo you will surely have a perfect experience that will stay memorable for a long time. It will take you an hour and half to get there, as to get to Šibenik you will need about an hour and then you will continue through the channel for about a half an hour to end up in Skradin, where you can tie your boat and proceed further boarding a big tourist boat to the National Park. The ferry is heading to Krka National Park every full hour.
Krka National Park includes seven waterfalls. The mount is particularly attractive because it is a submerged river mouth. The water is a mixture of salt sea and fresh river water, and is called a brackish water. The Krka River is quite long and rich with freshwater shellfish and sea fish. Sea water reaches up to Skradinski Buk, the most famous waterfall of the National Park.
Krka waterfalls are not very high. The most notable are: Roški waterfall and Manojlovac, which is 33 meters high and also the second largest in the National Park after Skradinski Buk. It is interesting that in the summer there is a lack of water during the heat, so the water is diverted to the surrounding hydroelectric power plants. The Krka River is due to her major scientific and cultural value declared a National Park in 1985, and has more than 700,000 tourists a year. In the 72 km long course Krka has seven travertine waterfalls, of which the most famous Skradinski Buk is 45.7 meters high with 17 steps, and Roški waterfall 25.5 meters high.
Archaeological excavations discovered the remains of pottery, flint blades and bones from Palaeolithic. The jewel of the National Park is the island Visovac, on which there is a Franciscan monastery, a valuable cultural and historical monument. The other important religious monument is the Orthodox Monastery of the St. Archangel, in which are kept valuable books, icons and liturgical manuscripts.
