KRKA

It is incredible how much water flows in this area! Imagine a river, which springs near the town of Knin, and after 73 kilometers flows into the Adriatic Sea. Imagine seven waterfalls that turn river Krka into the natural phenomenon. Around 860 species of plants can be found along the river. Also the Park is inhabited by many animals, including some endangered species (by European scale) such as the wolf, otter, wild cats and the greater horseshoe bat.
There is a rich cultural and historical heritage in the Park. On its territory there are about 20 archaeological sites. The most important are certainly the ruins of a Roman military camp Burnum from the first century and remains of Roman amphitheater.
Along the river Krka there are several medieval fortresses, the mill, which shows how once upon a time the power of water was exploited. Remains of hydropower plant show what it looked like in the recent past. The hydropower plant was built in 1895, only three days after the world's first hydropower plant at Niagara Falls. It is also the second oldest hydropower plant in the world and first in Europe.
The beautiful landscape is completed with Visovac Lake and the island Visovac, with the church and monastery from the 15th century.
National Park Krka can be best described by the words of one visitor: "Beyond beautiful".
