Krka national Park

Imagine a dry area with an exceptionally low water supply which, nature with her generosity, gifted a bountiful river whose water flow depth reaches 72.5 km. Today, the valleys along the Krk River have special protection status, since they contain a unique cultural and historical heritage which you simply “must” visit during your stay in Biograd.


Stemming from a karstic phenomenon, these wispy, featherlike waterfalls are, the fact, the most decorative part of the river, but when you add 2500 hours of sunny weather per year, the result is truly astounding.  Exceptionally beautiful are the Roški Falls and Skradinski Buk which allow hot weather enthusiasts the wonderful opportunity of swimming in the falls, as well as in other, specifically marked swimming areas.


The Krk valley may be explored on foot or by bicycle with 13 different pathways.  Krk bicycle routes encompass no less than 470 kilometers of circular trails, designed so that the rider can return to the starting point.  Try to avoid backtracking, since greener pastures await you as you continue onwards.


Along with the flow of the Krk River, you’ll find hundreds of caves and natural wells, 40 of which are situated within Krk National Park itself.  These landmarks tend to have interesting names, and one is actually called “Cave with No Name”! One special and attractive excursion is to sail towards the picturesque isle of Visovac, then on towards Roški slap (slap means “waterfall”), where you’ll pass Krk’s Medieval monasteries, namely the old Croatian fortress of Trošen and Nečven.


Krk National Park may be visited throughout the entire year. If you are planning to engage in mountain climbing, you’ll need to know that the Park extends across an area of 109 km² and that individual settlements are situated several kilometers apart from each another and separated by natural barriers. Some of these sites are accessible by boat, while the remaining sites may be reached by automobile.
