Krka National Park. Nature at its best.
If your visiting Croatia this should definitely be on your bucket list. I’ve been there twice now, once in 2016 and then again this year. Visiting Krka is easy from Split via bus, arranged tours or car rental if you have some friends to share the ride with.
Renting a car is what we did which cost 50 euro for the day, split between the five of us it was a nice cheap 10 euro each. We used CarFlexi to find and book our car for the day. It takes just 1 hour 15 minutes to drive from Split to Krka National Park. We went up on a Saturday afternoon, arriving around 5.30pm which turned out to be the perfect time as the park was nearly empty and at one point, we had the entire waterfalls to ourselves. As you can see from the footage there is no one else around.. it was great!
If you’re looking to do a tour, I’ve met a few people who have done this one and really enjoyed it, plus it is pretty good value at only 27 euro for a 7 hour trip.
Alternatively, you can catch a bus from Split (and most other towns in Croatia) through the Croatia public bus service. Timetable can be found online here. The travel time for the bus is 1.5 hours and costs approx 9-11 euro each way.
The entrance fee for the park between April and June is 110 kuna and for July and August it is 200 kuna. If you are going in the low season November to March the price is only 30 kuna.
What to bring:
Trainers/walking shoes, swimmers, towel, sunscreen, waterproof camera.
You can swim under the falls in the warmer months so don’t forget your swimsuit!!
