WATERFALLS OF THE KRKA RIVER

The national park is a vast and primarily unaltered area of exceptional natural value, including one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. The purpose of the park is primarily to serve science, culture, education and recreation, while tourism activities have also been introduced for its visitors.
Including the submerged part of the river at the mouth, the Krka River is 72.5 km long, making it the 22nd longest river in Croatia. It springs in the foothills of the Dinara mountain range, 2.5 km northeast of Knin. With its seven waterfalls and a total drop in altitude of 242 m, the Krka is a natural and karst phenomenon. The travertine waterfalls of the Krka River are the fundamental phenomenon of this river.

 

 

PLITVICE LAKES

The Plitvice Lakes National Park is a particular geological and hydrogeological karst phenomenon. It is the largest, oldest and most popular Croatian national park. The area is a forested mountainous region with a string of 16 lakes of different sizes, filled with crystal turquoise-coloured water. Lakes receive water from numerous little rivers and streams, and they are interconnected by cascades and waterfalls. Travertine barriers, which have arisen over a period of approximately ten thousand years, are one of the fundamental peculiarities of the Park. The particular geographic position of the Plitvice Lakes and the specific climate features contributed to the emergence of many natural phenomena and a rich biodiversity. The Upper Lakes in the south predominantly consist of dolomite rock, while the Lower Lakes in the north predominantly consist of limestone rocks.

 

DUBROVNIK

Dubrovnik is a city in southern Croatia, the administrative centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva County and one of the most important Croatian historic and tourist destinations. 

The prosperity of the city has historically been based on maritime trade. In the Middle Ages, as the Republic of Dubrovnik (Ragusa), it was the only city-state on the eastern Adriatic coast that was a rival to Venetian Republic. In addition to its wealth and skilled diplomacy, the city achieved a high level of development, particularly during the 15th and 16th centuries. Dubrovnik was one of the centres of development of Croatian language and literature, and it was a home to many notable Croatian poets, dramatists, painters, mathematicians, physicists and other scholars.

 

TROGIR

Trogir is a Croatian town which is administratively a part of the Split-Dalmatia County.

The castle and tower surrounded by walls form the core of Trogir. The most important cultural monument is the Trogir cathedral, whose portal of the western door was made by Master Radovan. The town of Trogir is located on the coast of the Kaštela Bay, on the island of Trogir between Čiovo and the mainland, connected by stone bridge to the mainland. Visitors are delighted by its cultural and historical monuments, small streets, as well as art collections with many great works. Trogir is best to visit with the expert tourist guide, outside the main season and tourist crowds.

Nacionalni park je prostrano, pretežito neizmijenjeno područje iznimnih i višestrukih prirodnih vrijednosti, a obuhvaća jedan ili više sačuvanih ili neznatno izmijenjenih ekosustava. Namjena mu je prije svega znanstvena, kulturna, odgojno-obrazovna i rekreativna, a zbog posjetitelja postoje i turističke djelatnosti.

S potopljenim dijelom ušća Krka je duga oko 72,5 km i po dužini je 22. rijeka u Hrvatskoj. Izvire u podnožju planine Dinare, 3,5 km sjeveroistočno od Knina. Sa sedam sedrenih slapova i ukupnim padom od 224 m, Krka je prirodni i krški fenomen. Sedreni slapovi rijeke Krke temeljni su fenomen ove rijeke.
