5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Krka National Park

While Plitvice National Park may be Croatia’s best known, Krka National Park is breathtaking and beguiling in equal measure. Just a 30-minute drive from the coastal city of Sibenik, the park covers an area of 109 sq. km along the Krka River and is home to over 200 species of birds, 800 species and subspecies of plants and 18 species of fish. We’ve listed five reasons why a visit to Krka National Park should be on your travel to-do list.
