Alright, folks, it’s almost the last day of Croatia Blog Week. Just one more post to go after this one, with bits and pieces of the road trip, my oyster stop in Ston, a night in Korcula Town, pictures of the coastal highway, … Nothing special compared this this blogpost though. I know, look at these pictures, I should just stop talking and let you enjoy and soak up the awesomeness. But wait a minute guys, be patient. I promise I won’t take a lot of your time. Just let me explain the basics.
So, from Split I had to go to Zadar for my flight on Saturday evening. So I thought: what to do with the rest of this day? Zadar was less than two hours away, but I didn’t want to go there again, or at least not so early. So I figured, let’s go to Krka National Park and see the waterfalls. Wise man, me. Very wise. Krka (again Croatia, please put more vowels in your words!) right in the middle between Split and Zadar and is home to some of the most beautiful European waterfalls. Its beauty is not unlike Plitvice’s (although Plitvice is just a tad more stunning, I feel), but swimming is allowed. Which makes it so much more fun on a hot summer day.
To get to the waterfalls, you have to take a boat or a bus from one of the entrances. I drove to Skradin, which is entrance 2 if I’m not mistaken and took the 20 minute boat ride. On arrival my jaw dropped. There were people selling beer and ice cream. Score! Oh yes, the waterfalls were nice as well!
