Ask anyone about Croatia’s most renowned feature, and they’d probably cite the Adriatic first. The coast is home to our most prestigious tourist destinations, such as Split and Dubrovnik, and a holiday in Croatia usually implies spending a pleasant week at the beach.
However, look inland, and you’ll find many understated gems that are more than deserving of a visit. Who says the sea is the only body of water that presents a perfect holiday destination? Croatia is full of gorgeous lakes and rivers such as Zrmanja; as they get less tourist traffic than the coastal cities, the shores of our inland beauties provide many fantastic spots for those looking to spend a couple of days relaxing, surrounded by stunning natural scenery.
Another great example is the river Krka, situated in central Dalmatia. It’s located in the Šibenik-Knin County, not far from the coast, so it makes for an easily reachable destination for a day trip from Zadar, Šibenik or Split.
Part of the area was proclaimed a national park in 1985, making it the youngest of the seven national parks in Croatia. The mesmerising colour palette, enchanting waterfalls and unspoilt nature along the shores of Krka are sure to win anyone over – in case you need proof, just take a look at the wonderful video below:
