Krka national park

Krka was proclaimed a national park in 1985, and it is the seventh national park in Croatia, though certain sections of the river Krka have been already protected since 1948. Including the submerged part of the river at the mouth, the Krka River is 72.5 km long, making it the 22nd longest river in Croatia. It springs at the foot of the Dinara mountain range, 2.5 km northeast of Knin. With its seven waterfalls and a total drop in altitude of 242 m, the Krka is a natural and karst phenomenon. The travertine waterfalls of the Krka River are the fundamental phenomenon of this river. NP KRKA is open for visitors during a whole year.
