Skradin

The small town of Skradin lies on the Krka River and is the best place from which to visit the Krka National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty and an exploration of which is one of the major highlights of a yacht charter here. Although the park stretches the length of the Krka Valley between the towns of Knin and Skradin,the section of the park that is located just east of Skradin is one of the most beautiful and the one towards which most visitors gravitate.

The river descends through Skradin Falls - a sequence of seventeen mini-waterfalls cascading over barriers of travertine behind which lie pools fringed with reeds and semi-submerged forest - before flowing through a picturesque canyon to the town. National park boats ferry visitors to the falls from Skradin and if you want to explore the upper reaches of the park it’s a good idea to start off early in the morning.  A network of wooden walkways leads you above the gurgling waters and through thick vegetation.

Swimming is permitted in one of the pools near the boat landing so be sure to bring your swimming costumes. You will definitely want to spend a full day here. Skradin itself is a pretty village of stone houses with a marina situated in one of the inlets off the river.  The Visitors’ Centre for the park is located in the town and there is a string of restaurants along the waterfront, a couple of which (Bonaca and Cantinetta) are said to be outstanding.
