What's to see?
The top attraction of the Park are its magnificent waterfalls, including the famous Skradinski Buk falls which are one of Croatia’s most famous sights. These falls are a collection of 17 waterfalls that range in height by over 45 metres.
Apart from the waterfalls, there’s a wide variety of both flora and fauna in the Park. Over 800 species of plantlife have been identified as being present in the National Park. Much of the animal life lives, unsurprisingly, in and around the waters of the Krka River which is home to different amphibian and reptile creatures.
If you're a lover of birds, you'll be happy to know there are over 200 different bird species here!
But let's be honest, you didn't come here to see the birds, you came here to swim in the falls and take that pic to make all your friends at home jealous they aren't there with you! Well in the Summer months only, you can swim at the lower part of the parks, so don’t forget your swimmers!
Koda Travel Tips
There are five main entrances to the park. As most people visit from Šibenik, the two most popular starting points are Skradin and Lozovac at the southern end. The other three entrances are at Roški Slap, Krka Monastery and Burnum, which can all be reached by car which is the quickest way to get.
Parking is free, but get there early as it fills up quick.
Buy your tickets from the official ticket booths which are easily located at all entrances.
The staff at the National Park are very helpful and offer information booklets with recommended walking trails.
There's a lot of walking if you want to see everything, so make sure you take plenty of water and enjoy it at your own pace.
Once you've paid your entry, you can take the bus to the bottom, where you can then get out and walk. You can walk from the top, but it's a long way down and the bus is included in your entry.
Take a look at the map on entry to pick your route to the main waterfall.
Get there early to beat the crowds!
How do I get there?
Just like the Plitvice Lakes, getting to the Krka Waterfalls is pretty easy. As it is closer to Split than the lakes, you can easily manage a day trip from the Split port. Or if travelling down from the Capital of Zagreb, put this on your list of places to stop on your road trip down to Split.
As easy as this is to do in a day trip, consider staying in the nearby towns for easier and early access. You can find many rooms close by on Airbnb.com at a reasonable rate.
Renting a car from the airport is the easiest and cheapest option for car rental. Driving in Croatia is easy, the roads are well signed and very easy to follow.
If driving isn't your thing, there is a public bus, or you can join one of the many
organized day tours available from Split.

KRKA NATIONAL PARK WATERFALLS
Stretching from the western foot of the Dinaric Range into the sea near Šibenik, the 73km Krka River and its wonderful waterfalls define the landscape of Krka National Park. The waterfalls are the big daddy attraction with the river water creating a canyon up to 200m deep through limestone hills. Moss and algae retain calcium carbonate and encrust it in their roots creating a material called tufa. It's formed by billions of plants growing on top of one another which create barriers in the river that produce the spectacular waterfalls.
