Krka National Park, a famous Croatian natural wonder
One of the many National Parks in Croatia, Krka National Park grabbed our attention with the promise of glorious waterfalls, along with the distinct Krka River and it’s basin. The formation of waterfalls in Krka is phenomenal, the travertine limestone that forms the Krka River rarely forms falls in the way it is seen at Krka National Park. Skradinski buk is an example of one such waterfall, and is now a famous Croatian natural wonder. We had the pleasure of exploring a deserted Skradinski buk, which is traditionally visited by thousands in the summer months. Water levels were significantly higher than in the summer months and we were in awe of the thunderous movement of the thousands of cubic metres that seemed to pass over the falls each second.
Roski slap is another portion of the 109km² that forms the Krka National Park. A series of short cascades leads to small lakes and islets before the Krka River falls graciously into the Visovac Lake. While we found Roski slap relatively underwhelming, we embarked on an incredible hike that winds alongside the edge of the cliff to the top of the basin. It was amazing to stand atop the cliff and lookout over the Krka National Park and Visovac Lake.
