A Window Into | Krka | Travelspective

Swimming the swell of Skradinski

If Plitvice Lakes is a place of majesty then Krka, its equally lush neighbor, impresses upon a more playful spirit. Hike through Mediterranean foliage as the surge of turbulent water grows louder by the minute. After a short while, keepers of the path will be rewarded in a way that Plitvice doesn’t allow. The increasing tempo of rushing water suddenly bursts through the emerald green and presents Skradinski Buk, a blue haven bespeckled in flecks of brown sediment and foamy torrents. It’s here that all of the difference is made, as these waters are open to those looking to play under the spraying falls. If you ask us, relaxing in calcium carbonate whirlpools is reason enough to visit, but it’s the resulting glow of becoming one with Mother Nature that really separates the experience Krka provides with that found in its sister park.
