Krka - a Croatian national park
Krka is one of Croatia’s eight national parks, covering an area of 142 square kilometres. Since it received the status of national park in 1985, the number of visitors has steadily increased.
Besides waterfalls, lakes and bathing areas, the park has a large variety of animals and plants. There are no less than 860 plant and vegetation species, as well as over 200 species of fish and birds, including 18 types of bat and several reptiles and amphibians.
On a small island in the river system lies the Visoval monastery, which is accessible by boat. The two most well known waterfalls in the park are the Skradinski Buk and Roski Slap. The park has Europe’s second highest concentration of lavender per square kilometre!
