Proclaimed a Croatian National Park in 1985, the Krka National Park was formed to protect the Krka River and its many beautiful waterfalls.
It covers 109 square kilometers, and is renowed for its exceptionally rich and varied flora and fauna.
The park is significant culturally too--it contains the island of Visovac, founded during the reign of Louis I of Hungary, and now home to the Roman Catholic Visovac Monastery founded by Franciscans in 1445. The park also contains the Serb Orthodox Monastery Krka, founded in 1345.

SibenikIt is the oldest native Croatian town on the eastern shores of the Adriatic. It lies where the Krka River meets the Adriatic. Most famous of its buildings is its cathedral - Cathedral Sveti Jakov, built in 1434. It is one of the most significant Renaissance buildings in Croatia and a Unesco World Heritage site.
