Krka Waterfalls

Krka gained its popularity due to the cascade of 7 picturesque waterfalls located along the entire river.

  • Bilusic Beech 22 meters high
  • Brlyan (15 meters)
  • Manoilovac (60 meters)
  • Rosnyak (8 meters)
  • Milyachka Slap (24 meters)
  • Roški Slap (22.5 meters)
  • Skradinsky beech (46 meters).

Roški Slap is the main waterfall, containing a large number of smaller waterfalls, reaching a length of 650 meters. The waterfall is located almost where the river flows into Lake Visovac. There is a small island on the island, which has the same name as the lake. A Franciscan church and monastery were built on the island. The monastery was built in the 14th century by the Augustinians. In 1445, the monastery passed to the Francises, which they subsequently expanded and rebuilt. During the war they were expelled by the Turks. There is also a Serbian Orthodox monastery on the park's lands, founded in the 14th century. During its history it was destroyed several times. In the 17th century it was almost completely destroyed by the Turks. During the war in Yugoslavia in 1995, it was destroyed for the last time; it was restored in 2001.
