If you spend your holidays in Split, there are plenty of daytrips you can take and one of them is definitely the National Park Krka. The waterfalls of the Krka river were proclaimed a national park in 1985. The river is a natural and karst phenomenon; it's famous for its travertine waterfalls.

Getting to NP Krka

The NP Krka is 117 km away from Split in direction north and by the fastest route which is the highway; travel time is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. From Split, enter the highway at Dugopolje and exit the higway at exit 22 towards Knin and Drnis. Toll applies on this highway route.

Another option, if you are with a car, is to take the highway to Skradin, a little town near Sibenik, from where a boat takes you to the national park. The distance from Split to Skradin is 92 km which equals a travel time of app. 1 hour. Boats from Skradin leave every full hour and return from the park at half hours; the ride takes 25 minutes.

In case you don't have a car, you can take a bus from Split to Sibenik and from Sibenik take another bus to Skradin. Buses from Split to Sibenik are quite frequent, one leaves every 30 minutes; travel time is app. 1 hour and 30 minutes. From Sibenik there are regional buses to Skradin/Krka: here you can see the timetable.
