Krka National Park - info

Where is the Krka National Park?

Located in the Šibenik-Knin County, the Krka National Park encompasses 109 km² of the windswept area of the Krka River and the lower course of the Čikola River. Including the submerged part of the river at the mouth, the Krka River is 72.5 km long, making it the 22nd longest river in Croatia. The Krka National Park enchants visitors with seven magnificent 224 m high waterfalls, as well as with its rich flora and fauna. Besides 1197 different plant species and subspecies, the animal species of this area include invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Along with the unspoilt nature, numerous visitors and pilgrims are attracted by its cultural and religious heritage. The serenity of this area seems to be created to develop a connection with God. While both the Visovac and the Krka Monastery (Holy Archangel) are the most important religious centres, along the course of the river there are also numerous other small chapels and churches.

The Krka National Park is open for visitors all year round, yet every season has its own, unique charm. In summer, the main concern is whether swimming in the Krka National Park will be possible. The answer is yes, but swimming is only allowed in marked locations, subject to certain conditions which we recommend to check on the official National Park website.
