National Park Krka
National park is a spacious, predominantly unaltered area of exceptional and multiple natural values, and includes one or more preserved or slightly altered ecosystems. Its purpose is primarily scientific, cultural, educational and recreational, and, because of the visitors, there are also tourist activities.
With the submerged part of the estuary, the Krka is approximately 72.5 km long which makes it 22nd longest river in Croatia. It springs at the foot of the Dinara mountain, 3.5 km northeast of Knin. With seven travertine waterfalls and a total drop of 224 m, Krka is a natural and karst phenomenon. The travertine waterfalls of the Krka river are a fundamental phenomenon of this river.
It's already in the middle of the 20th century that the need to legally protect the river Krka and its exceptional natural values that need to be preserved, was recognized.
