Krka National Park

Krka National Park (Trg Ivana Pavla II, br. 5, 22000 Šibenik) – located 3 hours via car south of Zagreb (near the Mediterranean), Krka National Park lies within Šibenik-Knin County, and covers a total area of 109 square km of the loveliest sections of the Krka River, and the lower course of the Čikola River. The Krka National Park was proclaimed in 1985 though certain sections of the Krka River were already protected as early as 1948.

Krka Park also has cultural and historical monuments. The most outstanding of these is the Franciscan monastery on the tiny island of Visovac, set in the middle of the lake widening in the river like a precious stone.  Admission:  30 kuna (adult), 20 kuna (students and children ages 7-18 years) (November – February); 90 kuna (adult), 70 kuna (students and children ages 7-18 years) (March – October).
