About NP Krka

Krka National Park lies about 10km inland from Sibenik. Named after the Krka River, the Park covers an area of just over 142 square km and includes two thirds of the river itself. The area is exceptionally rich in endemic flora and fauna, containing 222 types of bird species and over 800 species of plant life.

The top attraction of the Park is its magnificent waterfalls, including the famous Skradinski Buk falls which are one of Croatia’s most famous sights.

The tiny island of Visovac in the Krka river was settled by Franciscan monks in 1445, who originally built a monastery in that year and a church in 1576. The monastery contains a number of well-preserved artefacts and a library.

Roski Slap is another famous sight within Krka National Park; a series of 12 waterfalls in a space of 450 metres, the largest being just over 22 metres in height and 60 metres in width.

More information about Krka National Park is available on the official website

About Roški slap (Roski waterfall)

Roški slap, which is hosting this year’s first LegendFest of Sibenik-Knin County, is the most famous waterfall of National park Krka after Skradinski buk. At the same time, this is the last waterfall in the course of the Krka river before Skradinski buk. The waterfall is named after the medieval Croatian town Rog, ruled by many dukes of Ugrinić family. Over the waterfall, there is a road that dates back to Roman times. In 1910, on the right bank of the river, the Roški slap hydroelectric plant was constructed.

On both riverbanks, there are numerous mills, several of which have been restored and returned to their original function. Next to the mills, there is a renovated pillar for wool production and a ‘valjavica’ for washing fabrics, which have a special cultural and historical significance and as such are monuments of rural architectural and trade history. Due to their primary function and expression of rural life, these structures are considered to be ethnographic monuments.

Roški slap is especially interesting due to the distinctively rich canyon vegetation which comes in contact with the dry, light and moist shady habitats.
