Croatia Krka Waterfalls

The Krka Waterfalls in Croatia offer stunning beauty that is awe-inspiring and unforgettable. The Krka River creates the magnificent falls as it winds its way to the sea through mountains and canyons and forest wilderness.

The area is rich in wildlife, with over 200 species of birds, as well as an abundance of cultural and historical value. One of the water mills is an ethno museum and the village has a working blacksmith, weaver, and other exhibits, as well as beautiful walking paths lined with native flowers and plants. The pristine waters at the mouth of the river are alive with shellfish, freshwater and saltwater fish, and a variety of plant life.

When visiting the Krka Waterfalls, you’ll want to take your bathing suit, towel, and sunscreen and take a dip at one of the many pools of water below the sets of falls. Additionally, take time to visit the following sites:

  • Visovac Island: Home to the Roman Catholic Visovac Monastery and the Serb Orthodox Monastery Krka, the island is situated in a peaceful lake amid breath-taking scenery.
  • Skradinski Buk: A natural pool with steep waterfalls on one end and cascades on the other.
  • Roski Slap: A series of stunning cascades near Miljevci.
