Krka National Park Things to Do

  • Swim

    If you don't fear the cold waters, and don't bother sharing a small pond with hundreds... let's go. We didn't, and didin't feel sorry, because we didn't feel that hot, and the sights compensated everything. Even the steep stairs were easy to climb.

    more
  • Navigation

    Aapparently, (we left by car, from the top of the falls, but I don't know if there is an entrance there, or just a way out) there are two ways to reach the falls: by car, or by boat. We did it the second way, and I think that is is the most pleasant way to do it. The boat ride is short and the landscape is beautiful. It's a pity we had no time to...

  • Lakes

    The park is large, and before and after the falls, the water flows slowly, composing some wide lakes surrounded by the forest. With a different look, the landscape keeps attractive and peaceful.

    more
  • The Park

    Everybody looks at the water, with good reason, but the park is much more than some beautiful falls and lakes. The rich flora, and, maybe, the fauna (I didn't notice anything special) helps to compose the harmony of the site, and shades the way up by the falls.

  • Swimming in the park

    Swimming is allowed in some parts of the park, like this one here.Here is also a picnic area and a restaurant.We were told that there is a small cave under one of these waterfalls where you can step in. It would be nice to investigate a bit :)

  • Enjoy Krka !!!

    This beautiful national park is a good place to visit if you are seeking serenity and peace. The waterfalls invite you for a jump and swim in the cold waters. You can see green everywhere, the songs of birds mixing with the sounds of water. You can spend hours here and I am sure you will enjoy every minute of it. Check out the official website for...

  • Skradinksi buk

    Skradinksi waterfall is located close to the two entrances near Sibenik. It offrest nice surroundings for a walk along the footpaths and bridges. Closeby the falls you can take a two-hour boat trip on the River Krka and visit some of the islands.

  • The falls

    It's a pleasant walk, going up from the bathing area to the top of the falls. Here and there, a watching point allows a stop to rest and enjoy the view. We did appreciate them!

  • getting to Krka from Skradin...

    One way to get to Krka is by taking the boat from Skradin. Skradin is located inland and was a flash point during the War of Independence. It was here I began to get a glimpse of the mixture of western and eastern ideas that come together in the Balkans. The boat ride up river made me realize what a diverse region Croatia is. The earliest boat up...

  • souvenirs from Krka NP

    During your stay in Krka NP you'll see few old ladies selling drinks in bottles and few other things that come from Croatia (Dalmatia). I would recommend you to try or to buy alcoholic herbal drinks (in cro.it's called RAKIJA)- ask if you could try TRAVARICA and also sweet almonds fried in water and sugar (cro.przeni bademi, bajame)!

    more
  • walking around the park

    Various flora and fauna make tourists to enjoy in pure nature these few hours and make them to forget dirty, crowded towns..Waterfall Veli Buk got name because of making a lot of noise and people who live near NP can really hear noise of waterfalls during the night.

    more
  • Bathing near the falls

    Many people take a bath near the falls, its not possible to do it directly under the falls, but at the end of Skradinski Buk there is a large area where it is possible to swim around.There can be some snakes in the water, but these should be harmless (according to the park employees)

  • Olujno nevrijeme

    Neposredno po dolasku ipred ulaza u Nacionali park zadesilo me olujno nevrijeme s jakim pljuskom i tucom. Sve to dobrano je potrajalo, više od sat vremena. Vec kada sam pomišljao da je moj dolazak bio uzaludan, kiša je naglo stala i zapocelo je stidljivo razvedravanje.Ovo je izgled neba nakon što sam s autobusom došao pred donji ulaz u compleks...

  • Swimming in Krka

    There's more to do in Krka than just walking around and snapping photos. Be sure to bring your swimmers and you can take a dip in the chillingly refreshing waters of Stradinski Buk. You can swim all the way out underneath the falls, or just float around in the fall's pool.

    more
  • The town museum

    There is a museum like house where you can view the way that the locals used to live in the region. If you've been to Williamsburg, it's like that but much smaller.

Krka National Park Restaurants

  • Beautiful restaurant in the middle of...

    We haven't stopped here for a meal, so I don't know much about the quality of food.Scenery however, is awesome. You dine in shade of a big tree, next to the small waterfalls and noise of water. Very romantic :)

  • On the road from Sibenik to Krka

    You can see many restaurants on the road with their specialty "Grilled Suckling Pig". It is very delicious and you get big portions to enjoy. After a day in the nature, this can be a good way to finish. Grilled pork, some nice side dish and cold beers. I am getting hungry again :) Grilled suckling pig

    The best way to experience Krka is to have whole day excursion from Vodice or Sibenik with the boat.Team and boat Lirica from Vodice are great!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Reaching the exit of the Park, we have the usual complex of shops and restaurants, but, I have to make justice, they are well integrated in the ambiance, and help to keep the visual balance of the whole. A very good solution.

  • Zaposlenici Nacionalnog Parka

    Svi zaposlenici Nacionalnog parka, osim cuvara, obuceni su u tradicionalnu narodnu nosnju iz sibenske regije. Na taj nacin njeguje se i promice folklor i kultura ovoga podnjeblja.Djevojka sa slike, koja je vrlo susretljivo pozirala, prodaje karakteristicne suvenire iz ovoga kraja, a ducan se nalazi na gornjem katu mlinareve kuce.

    Neposredno uz sam mlin nalazi se kuca u kojoj je obitavao mlinar sa svojom porodicom. Obicno je mlinar bio najbogatiji covjek u selu. Za svoje usluge rjedje je primao novac, jer seljak oduvijek oskudijeva u novcu, tako da je uzimao naturalnu naknadu u smljevenom zitu ili kukuruzu.Prema starim tradicijskim obicajima toga kraja, dobrostojeci muskarac...

Krka National Park Warnings and Dangers

    by croisbeauty Written Nov 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pripazi kada prelazis preko ceste da slucajno ne ugazis na zapca. Tko zna, mozda je ona bajka ipak istinita pa se u ovoj zabi krije lijepa princeza ili mozda princ.
    Ovaj junak se najprije pravio da je mrtav, sto sam i ja pomislio, no kako sam se zadrzao u njegovoj blizini ne dirajuci ga, to se i on okurazio pa je najprije otvorio jedno oko da me promotri. Kada sam priblizio kameru da ga bolje zoomiram, jadnik se poceo suljati. Vidio sam zapce koji skacu ali nikada takvog koji se sulja.

Krka National Park Tourist Traps

  • day trip

    Do not pay for an organized tour from camping reception (40€)... go by your self at the entrance of “Lazovac” 10 min from camping. “Skradinski Buk” waterfowl are another 10 min down by free bus...The rest they offer you can see by driving your car around...

    more
  • The vendors

    There are a lot of vendors of different small things around the park, they sell fruit and nuts but the prices are quite high. Its a good idea to bring your own lunch because the the eating places at the location are all tourist traps to some degree.
