Changing the scenery from sea to lake. from waves to waterfalls. Not too far from Vodice one very popular place for holiday goers and locals can be found. The Krka National Park with its waterfalls of the river Krka. It was formed to protect the ecosystem of the Krka River and is intended primarily for scientific, cultural, educational, recreational, and tourism activities. It is the seventh national park in Croatia and was proclaimed a national park in 1985. The Krka National Park is a spacious, largely unchanged region of exceptional and multifaceted natural value, and includes one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. The Krka Waterfalls area has the second highest density of lavender in Europe, hence the high frequency of wasps and bees in the area. Especially in the summer 2020 wasps due to ... read more

Today I am asking you to think back to your childhood and holidays or even to taking your own children on holiday. What is your lasting memory of those trips? Perhaps not the destination or even arriving but the words "Have we got there yet?" or "Have we been here before?". They seemed to be the only words spoken on a journey. It starts as soon as you leave home and continues mile after mile. In motorhoming there is not always an end destination. Just a few dots on a map, a few points of interest that you join together on the holiday. Eventually you get back to where you started and have come round full circle. We had a vague end point but didn't quite get there. The poor weather just spoiled it for us. ... read more

I am sitting in the café at Skradinski Buk, an indescribable torrent of waterfalls. The others have gone for a boat trip, and I am skipping the experience and avoiding feeling ill. Louder than any of the many visitors is the cascading roar of the water. We were almost alone for the first hour of strolling amongst a lace of waterfalls. By the end of the second hour, we rejoiced that we had finished before the big bus tours arrived. Part of the Krka National Park (pronounced as spelled), a vast quantity of water tumbled from the surrounding mountainous hills through a long downhill stretch of rocks. Over long ledges it rolled into the raging Krka River. Down craggy cliffs it crashed into thick foam. Rivulets traced tiny lace patterns among the plants. G... read more

One of the best day trips we took from Split was to the beautiful Krka National Park (I still can't get the pronunciation right, but I think it is more Kir-ka than Kra-ka). The main advantage the park has over Plitvice National Park is that you can swim here (in certain areas.) Definitely great news for us as we visited on the hottest day of our holiday at 38C, quite a shock for us pasty Scots! On entering the park at the small town of Skradin, you are taken by boat along the river to the first spectacular waterfall, Skradinski Buk. You don't get super-close to the waterfall, but even when I swam up to the barrier I could feel my legs being dragged in by the powerful force of the falls. Cooling off on such ... read more

The next morning, we got up very early, at 6:30 AM to have breakfast before going to Krka national park. After I had eaten half of my croissant, Anne found out that all the bread tasted like gas because we had been stupid enough to leave it during the night in the trunk of my car with the gas. That explained why my croissant tasted so bad...! °_° We threw everything away and bought new bread on our way to the national park as well as some milk for me because it's good against poisoning. We arrived at Krka national park at 7:50 AM and there were already about 50 other people there. After much consideration we had chosen the entrance at Lozovac instead of the one in Skradin. We both had read on different blogs ... read more

Krka National Park Krka is another beautiful spot, famous for the water features – waterfalls, travertines, rivers and lakes. It’s massively popular amd well worth the visit. We spent two nights staying in an apartment above the village of Skradin, which has easy access to the National Park. It’s relatively expensive to visit the park so we decided to spend one full day there, taking the 8am boat into the park. This is the first boat of the day and definitely a good choice as the number of people in the park jumped dramatically at around 10am, giving us a couple of peaceful hours. They limit the number of people to the park to 10,000 per day – and that’s in a 2km square area, with one main trail on boardwalks and one swimming area – ... read more

Ok we are off today on a trip. A trip to the most beautiful awesome place I have seen. A trip where water is involved . Lots of it. So if you hate getting wet, if you hate frogs, if you hate fish then stop now and dont continue reading . We are off to the Krka National park. A treasure if ever there is one. The park is named after the river Krka that it encloses. It is located along the middle-lower course of the river just a few kilometres from Sibernik. It was formed to protect the Krka River and is intended primarily for scientific, cultural, educational, recreational, and tourism activities. It is the seventh national park in Croatia and was proclaimed a national park in 1985. The first thing that will surprise you ... read more
