About Krka National Park
The Krka National Park, designated a national park in 1985, is situated in the region of the Sibenik-Knin district and has a very rich and diverse flora and fauna; it includes the region along the river Krka which runs through a deep canyon and forms beautiful waterfalls. Unlike Plitvice, Krka's waterways are easily visited on boat excursions; the two most visited spots are the Skradinski Buk which cascades 50m over the huge boulders covered in plants and the Roski Slap which is wider and much more of a maze of smaller cascades.
Skradin village is simply magical and easy to find travelling up into the hills from Sibenik (or the nearby highway); it is almost surrounded by water and appears like an island with the buildings hugging the central hillside as you drive down to it. The pretty centre of the village has many restaurants and shops and places to cool off with a welcome home-made ice cream. The harbour area looks over to the highway bridge in the distance and is the embarkation place for boats into the national park.
An ideal location for visiting the Krka National Park to seek out the peace and quiet of the Visovac monastery and the exciting burst of water at the Skradinski Buk waterfall.

"Hotel Tisno, Tisno. A really lovely hotel - we had a great room, great breakfast and extremely welcoming staff. We visited the island opposite and chilled on a rocky beach and also visited the little towns which were very laid back. We had a fantastic meal at a restaurant recommended by the hotel."
