On the occasion of its 37th birthday, the Krka National Park honors visitors with a free entrance for the weekend and an emotional series of photos “People from Krka”.
Krka National Park is located in the Šibenik-Knin County and covers an area of 109 km² of the most beautiful course of the Krka River and the lower reaches of the Čikola River.
The National Park is a vast, mostly unaltered area of exceptional and multiple natural values, and includes one or more preserved or slightly altered ecosystems. Its purpose is primarily scientific, cultural, educational and recreational, and because of the visitors there are also tourist activities.
With the submerged part of the Krka estuary, it is about 72.5 km long and is the 22nd longest river in Croatia. It springs at the foot of the Dinara mountain, 3.5 km northeast of Knin. With seven travertine waterfalls and a total drop of 224 m, Krka is a natural and karst phenomenon. The travertine waterfalls of the Krka River are a fundamental phenomenon of this river.
Already in the middle of the 20th century, the need to legally protect the Krka River and its due to the exceptional natural values that need to be preserved was recognized.
