If you visit Croatia, don’t miss the beautiful Krka National Park! I visited this beautiful National Park from the city of Split in Croatia.

The most famous national parks in Croatia are perhaps Plitvice and Krka. Plitvice was unfortunately too far from our travel destination, so we were unable to visit this park. Even though I would have loved to visit that national park.

Krka National Park is located near the town of Šibenik. It covers a total area of ​​no less than 109 km². The Krka river flows through the nature reserve with a length of more than 72 km.

The park has some beautiful waterfalls. After entering the National Park you first arrive at the Skradinski Buk. This is rightly the most visited waterfall. Here you can take a refreshing dip before or after the hike. Unfortunately, you’re not the only one with this idea! Especially in the afternoon it can be very crowded. The many rocks in the water ensure that the water is very clear. But they also make swimming difficult, which makes water shoes a must.

You can walk from the lowest to the highest part of the waterfall by means of wooden walkways. This walk is easy to do and in many places you will be treated to a beautiful view.
