The krka national park is a recently established park (1985) with loads of attractions and activities suitable both for active or less active people - so everyone should visit it. There's waterfalls, lakes where you can swim, a watermill museum at Skradinski Buk and the possibility of taking a great "cruise" to Visovac and Roski Slap. Visovac is a lovely monastary set scenically on an island in the middle of a lake - the boat leaves you 30 minutes to explore the little island. From there on it takes you to Roski Slap, a "chain" of waterfalls at the very end of the lake - where you'll stop for about an hour. There are a couple of restored watermills that have been turned into simple restaurants, and you can have delicious food there and maybe even go for a swim before returning back to Skradinski Buk.
The park can be reached by public bus from Sibenik

Primosten is a tiny old town surrounded on three sides by water - and it's a well known place to spend the summer for Croatian people. Someone I met on the bus told me about it, and I was intrigued - so I had to go there. She did not lie, it's truly a great place to visit. There is an old medieval gate and some really charming narrow streets that lead up to a little church: there're lovely views up there on the surrounding country and seaside. And then there are two wonderful stone beaches lined by pine trees. And the sea... oh, crystal clear - and the colour: from emerald green to pure blue! To die for! A perfect place for a day out, in balance between being a beach bum and exploring somewhere new.
To get to Primosten there are hourly buses from Sibenik, and the ride takes about 30 minutes.
Below the main falls of Krka you can swim, its a BIG space, and its a perfect and calming spot, we couldnt do this in Plitvice, so this payed off for being a grand trip.
National park - Krka, very near Sibenik. Paradise on earth..waterfalls all around, untouched nature..

What I love about Dalmatia in general, are narrow streets and a feeling that time holds still there. Photo:hidden Dalmatian alley, Murter
