Krka National Park can be found at the Sibenik region of Croatia. It is famous for its waterfalls and also because the most beautiful part of River Krka can be found in the park. The Park lies on 109 km2 territory and can be entered from two towns. If you arrive to Lozovac, you will enter the waterfalls with a bus. If you go to Skradin, you will talk a half hour and 3 km long boat trip. The boats leave from the town once in every hour and in every half an hour back.
For additional fee, you can book a boat for yourself and take a trip that is not restrained by other people or time.
The visitors have a chance to enter some of the waterfalls, but the ground is very rocky, it is not easy to move and the water is very cold. Although this place is very tourist-friendly, make sure not to enter the places where it is not allowed. The hiking route is 4 kms but with a lot of uphill steps and roads.
You can find many relaxation stages in every 10 minutes where you can freshen up or have a picnic. There are many food stands in the park and although they are very expensive, it certainly has a feeling when you walk with a fruit salad in your hand surrounded by natural beauty.
I noticed earlier that fig is very popular in Croatia and I saw many bushes in the park. There are also stands selling the fresh or the dried version of the fruit.
During our walk in the park I saw dragonflies, different kinds of fish and ducks. It is stated that more than 200 hundred bird species and even bats live in the park, but I didn’t run into them during my visit.
