Description

The most spectacular karst related feature of Nacionalni park Krka (Krka National Park) is the short piece of the river Krka between the villages Knin and Skradin. On 2km the river forms numerous travertine lakes connected by waterfalls, composed of the limestone from the limestome rich karst water of the river.

There are numerous small and eight bigger waterfalls, one behind the other. From the lowest to the highest these are Skradinski buk, Roški slap, Miljačka slap, Sondovjel, Manojlovački slapovi, Ćorića buk and Bilušića buk. Skradinski buk, the lowest, is also said to be the most beautiful waterfall. It is composed of seventeen drops with a total height of 45.7m. Another impressive set of waterfalls is the Manojlovački slapovi, a set of waterfalls with a total height of 59.6m and a main waterfall of 32m height.

A little outside the park, but still in a protected area, is the spring of the Krka.
