For our final day out in Croatia, we decided to go and explore the notorious National Park in Krka, named after the river it encloses. Located in central Dalmatia, it is close enough to the coast for beach tourists to make a day of it, although it is a pretty long drive.
Whilst countless coach and guided tours head there on a daily basis, we decided to go with a smaller group, as the guide was able to pick us up straight from our apartment and did the journey more quickly in his car.
Krka’s National Park is a natural wonder, home to almost 900 species of plants as well as a vast number of endangered animal species, including 222 types of birds. There are even bats.
But the most spectacular parts of the Park are undoubtedly the Skradinski Buk waterfalls. If you’re visiting Croatia and are in the nearby area, Krka is a truly unmissable, spectacular and relaxing day out. And a good swim too, which in that heat was most welcome!
