Krka National Park is the seventh national park in Croatia. It is known for the beauty and richness of its lakes and waterfalls. It is named after the river Krka which flows through it. It was declared a national park on January 24, 1985. In the vicinity below the waterfall called Skradinski buk is the old Jaruga hydroelectric power plant. This hydroelectric power plant is special because it is the second oldest in the world and the first hydroelectric power plant built in Europe. It was built back in 1895. More specifically on August 28, just three days after the oldest hydropower plant in the world, the one at Niagara Falls.
The largest and most famous waterfalls are by all means; Bilusica Buk, Brljanski Waterfall, Manojlovac, Rosnjak, Miljacka, Roski Waterfall and Skradinski Buk. The highest waterfall is Manojlovacs with a height of 60 meters. The lowest waterfall is Rosnjak with a height of only 8 meters.
Many group and private tours and excursions to the Krka Park are organized daily from Split. The biggest crowds in the park are generally between 10am and 3pm. National Park Krka is open to visitors throughout the year. A tour of the park is possible with the purchase of a ticket. It is possible to enter the park through as many as five entrances. Those are; Lozovac, Skradin, Roški Waterfall / Laškovica, Burnum / Puljani and Kistanje. The park can also be viewed in various ways, by walking, by bicycle and even by excursion boats.
Skradinski buk is the longest waterfall on the Krka River and certainly the most beautiful for sightseeing. It also houses old renovated mills that were previously used to grind grain and produce flour. At the lowland of the Park there are many glades and meadows along the river and lakes. They are used as resting places for the various activities the park offers. They are also often used for picnics. The park also abounds with traditional Dalmatian cuisine and various other traditional delicacies of the area. Perhaps the best part about it is that the Park is adapted for bathing and swimming, which most visitors regularly enjoy to refresh from the hot summer temperatures.
