City of Zadar
If you have been staying in the city of Zadar, you already know that Zadar isn’t only a city of tourism, but also a city of extraordinary history and a rich cultural legacy acknowledged by UNESCO. The city of Zadar is historically known as Zara and it is the oldest permanently inhabited Croatian city.
Nowadays, the city of Zadar attracts thousands of visitors each year, especially during the summer. Most important landmarks include the Roman Forum, the Church of St. Donatus, and St. Anastasia’s Cathedral.
However, art objects that draw tourists and locals alike are the Sea organ and the Greeting to the Sun. The Sea organ is an experimental musical instrument that plays music by way of sea waves and the Greeting to the Sun is a monument whose lighting elements installed in a circle turn on at night and produce a light show. Both art objects are designed by Croatian architect Nikola Bašić.
Krka National park
Krka Waterfalls aren’t far from Zadar. National Park Krka is situated about 80 km from Zadar, which makes it an apparent destination for a day trip. The National park is named after the river Krka that it encloses. When tourists and locals think about the National park Krka, they usually think about breathtaking waterfalls. However, eight hundred and sixty species and subspecies of plants have been found in the park, including several endemic species. Also, ten endemic species of fish inhabit the Krka River, making the Krka a natural landmark of the highest category.
The most attractive parts of the park include Skradinski buk, Roški slap and the island of Visovac. Skradinski buk is a vast natural pool with high waterfalls at one end and cascades at the other. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Europe. Roški Slap is the second most popular attraction of the Krka National Park. The waterfall location offers wonderful views. Inside the park is the island of Visovac which is home to the Roman Catholic Visovac Monastery. The island of Visovac can be visited by boat tour from Skradinski buk.
As previously mentioned, a boat trip through the park (included in the entrance ticket) is a great way to see a major part of the Park. You will see that the boat trip will be excellent. You will visit the island of Visovac and tour this tiny island for half an hour. You can visit the church, monastery museum or have cold drinks or ice cream in restaurant. The boat will wait for you to take you to Roški slap. Take a walk on a hiking trail and take some amazing photos. Finally, Skradinski buk will leave you breathless. It is stunning. Lots of flora and fauna and beautiful views.
To conclude about Krka waterfalls tour from Zadar. The main waterfall attracts a lot of people to swim in it (you can do it, too!), but the real gem in this park is taking the whole stroll around the pathway. The park itself is very well designed and it has tons of small hidden overlooks and the park designers knew what they were doing. Tons of photo opportunities for you to discover.
Be sure that this jewel of Croatian tourism will not disappoint!
