Krka National Park waterfalls – price 45 EUR
About an hour drive from the Split, this National Park is a known for its lakes and waterfalls. At the start of the Krka tour we will visit Skradin, a pretty little riverside town with a combination of brightly painted and bare stone houses of its main streets and a ruined fortress towering above it. From Skradin we will take a panoramic boat ride through the Krka canyon towards Skradinski buk, presenting all the beauty of the surrounding area. After a picturesque panoramic boat ride you stop at Skradinski - the largest travertine cascade system in Europe. The walk through the park will be truly serene: myriad waterfalls glazing in front of your eyes while you walk a network of wooden bridges and boardwalks and the sweet scent of pine fills your nostrils. We will continue our walk with educational trails through nature and an authentic ethno presentation that reveal how river water kept the life thriving in this area throughout centuries. Remnants found from thought the history like stone houses and watermills have been turned into souvenir shops and exhibition spaces. Return to Split is planned in the early evening. This is a relaxing excursion and one of the most recommended excursions for people visiting the Split area.
