Discover Dalmatia's natural beauty: The magic of the Krka waterfalls

You may have already heard from friends or family that Croatia is an undeniably beautiful and popular holiday destination. The country on the Adriatic coast attracts thousands of travellers from all over the world every year. But what makes Croatia and its nature so distinctive, and why should you make your way there? Away from the beautiful islands and beaches, there are other treasures hidden in this diverse country – impressive nature, national parks and, most notably, the Krka waterfalls.

Today we would like to take you on a journey to this magnificent natural spectacle. Not only will we introduce you to the beauty of the Krka Waterfalls, but we will also create an incentive for you to explore Croatia with Holiday-Sun as your travel partner. If you are looking for an unforgettable holiday experience, then read on and let us convince you of a Croatia holiday by the sea. We promise you, it will not only be tasty, but also unforgettable!

Fun fact: Parts of the Winnetou films were shot at the Krka waterfalls (Skradinski buk, Roški slap and at the Veil Falls above the Roški Falls) and in the canyon of the river in the 1960s.

Nature adventures in Krka National Park: the Krka waterfalls are located here

A visit to Krka National Park and the unique Krka waterfalls is a must on your holiday in Croatia. A holiday home in Dalmatia from Holiday-Sun is the perfect starting point for this must-do day trip.

A true nature adventure awaits you in the Krka National Park, which goes far beyond the picturesque Krka waterfalls. Numerous well-signposted walking and hiking trails lead you to the most beautiful viewpoints and the Krka waterfalls. Tie your hiking boots tightly, pack enough drinking water and let yourself be enchanted by the unique scenery while hiking! In addition to the rushing Krka waterfalls surrounded by dense greenery, you will experience views of blooming landscapes with deep blue lakes, mysterious ruins and dense forests – a true natural paradise!

For a well-earned break after your hike, there are several cosy restaurants in the national park. Another highlight awaits you on the small island of Visovac in the lake of the same name: the Franciscan monastery, built in 1445 and home to an impressive art collection. 30-minute boat trips to the island usually start at Skradinski Buk, the most famous waterfall in the national park.

The undisputed highlight of Krka National Park is the aforementioned Skradinski Buk. At this, the longest waterfall in the park, the water flows down 17 steps into a shallow pool where you can even take a refreshing dip. But we’ll come to that later.

If you hire a bike in Šibenik or Skradin, you can experience the park in a very special way. You can explore the surrounding nature on 14 partially asphalted mountain bike and cycle paths and continue your adventure in Krka National Park on two wheels.

The 7 Krka waterfalls

The Krka Waterfalls in the Krka National Park enchant visitors with their natural beauty. Seven breathtaking waterfalls are waiting to be discovered.

 On the map you can see the location of Krka National Park and the main entrances in Skradin, Lozovac, Roski Slap, Puljane and Kistanje. The locations of the seven waterfalls are also marked.

Bilusica Buk

Bilusica Buk, consisting of two steps with a height difference of around 20 metres. It is best reached via Raducic (Knin-Kistanje road) or from the Promina side (Drnis-Oklaj road) via Gornji, Citluk and Ljubotic.


The Brljan waterfall only shows its splendour at high water. With a length of 300 metres and a depth of 15.5 metres, it is particularly impressive in spring. It can be reached via a hiking trail over the ruins of Burnum.


It is by far the most beautiful and largest waterfall in the Krka National Park and impresses with a total height of almost 60 metres. It can be reached via Bukovac (Knin – Kistanje, near Burnum) or Promina (Drnis – Oklaj).


Rosnjak, the smallest of the seven Krka waterfalls, is located in a picturesque gorge. It can be reached via Bukovac (Knin-Kistanje) or Promina (Drnis-Oklaj-Puljana).

Miljacka slap

This waterfall is located around 1 km below Rosnjak and plunges a total of 23.8 metres into the depths. Unfortunately, the waterfall is not accessible as it is located on the site of a power station. However, it is visible from Bukovac via Knin-Kistanje (towards Oklaj-Drnis).

Roski slap

The waterfall stretches for around 650 metres and flows into Lake Visovac. There is also an ethnographic museum here. The waterfall can be reached from Promina via the Drnis-Siritovi road or from the Bukovac side via the village of Lastkovica.

Skradinski Buk

Skradinski Buk, the longest waterfall in the Krka National Park at around 800 metres, has 17 steps. The best way to reach it is via the Sibenik – Prukljan Lake – Skradin route. Skradinski Buk is one of the most beautiful travertine waterfalls in Europe and forms the impressive conclusion to this natural symphony in the heart of the Krka National Park.

The national park and the Krka waterfalls

Croatia, a popular and beautiful holiday destination, hides a true treasure of nature in the Krka National Park.
