The waterfalls and rivers making up the place are bountiful to say the least, but it takes some navigation to see them all. So if you happen to be planning on visiting this beautiful park, you will surely see more than expected.
Widely known as being the longest waterfall in Krka National park. This cascading torrent can be viewed all throughout the year thanks to several bridges and paths. But something that isn’t well known would be that the waterfall has several refurbished mills and other buildings littered all around it. Due to respecting the architectural value, there are some mills that are made into gift shops.
Skradinski buk is also the seventh and also the last longest travertine barrier on the Krka river. Located at around 10km downstream from the “Roški slap“; or rather 49km from the source. Over 17 “steps” Skradinskog buka overflow into one another through a distance of around 800 meters with the rivers of Krka and Čikole. The length of the waterfall is just around 200 to 400 meters, a rather marvellous sight if I must say.
Whilst Skradinski buk is the last and seventh waterfall, Roški slap is the sixth one. The interesting shape of it earning a title of “Necklace” among the people, due to it’s lush and rich vegetation. The waterfall gaining the name Roški slap from “Rog”, an old ancient Hillfort that you can barely find tracks of today. The canyon in this part being spread into a funnel like shape.
The main waterfall is located on the edge of the barrier where Krka is spread open 15m, cascading down to Visovačko lake. It’s also an interesting thing to note that there are caves hidden across Krka.
If you are already visiting Krka Waterfalls, it would be a shame not to at least see, let alone visit Visovac island. Due to it’s rather exceptional value. Visovac has attracted a wide majority of pilgrims due to the monastery and church that resides on the island.
But those that would like to visit Visovac island, Krka organizes boat trips from Skradinski buk, the length of which is at around 2 hours with stops to explore the small islands, the monastery and museum; taking around half an hour to do so.
