Krka National Park lies within Šibenik-Knin County, and covers a total area of 109 km² of the loveliest sections of the Krka River, and the lower course of the Čikola River. Due to its exceptional natural value, the Krka National Park was proclaimed in 1985.The travertine waterfalls of the Krka River are the fundamental phenomenon of this river.


Skradinski buk is one of Croatia's best known natural features, made up of travertine cascades, islands and lakes.  It is one of the most unusual and beautiful landscapes in Krka National Park. Upstream there is Roški waterfall which is exceptionally interesting due to its cascades, called the necklaces. Oziđana cave, a locality within the framework of the educational walking trail Stinice - Roški waterfall - Oziđana cave, is a site of exceptional natural, cultural and historical significance with an in situ archaeological collection that has been put on display in the cave. More upstream of Krka river lies Manojlovac waterfall which is the tallest and considered by many to be the loveliest waterfall on the Krka River. Nearby is the archaeological locality Burnum where visitors can view the arches of the command building in the camp, the only military amphitheatre in Croatia and several walls of the military exercises area. Furthermore, the Park preserves the remains of five medieval fortresses and monuments of industrial architecture (Krka HE).


The lake-like sections of the Krka River are true oases of peace. Visovac Island is among the most important natural and cultural values in the Republic of Croatia. Another tame widening of the Krka River is the site of the Monastery of the Holy Archangel, one of the most important spiritual centres of the Orthodox Dalmatian Eparchy.


Thanks to geographic position and the large number of different habitat types, the plant life around the Krka River is exceptionally diverse and picturesque, with 1022 species recorded to date. The fauna of Krka National Park is very rich and diverse, with many endemic, rare and threatened species. This puts the Krka River among the most valuable natural entities in both Croatia and Europe.
