Swimming In Krka National Park, Croatia

Swimming In Krka National Park, Croatia

I have a strange obsession with waterfalls. They’re really rather hypnotic don’t ya think?

I will admit, Krka National Park in Croatia was a lot busier than I was prepared for but still absolutely, 100%, worth visiting because it was just as beautiful as imagined. Croatia really knows how to do a sexy waterfall.

The practical bit – Krka is about an hour drive from Split. If, like us, you don’t have a car, we booked this tour which was perfect because it simply took us to and from the park and nothing else – exactly what we wanted. We took a coach ride to Skradin and then caught the boat that took us into the park itself. We spent about five hours in the park in total and that was plenty of time to do the walk all the way round the main area, have some lunch and then go swimming – yes, swimming.

It’s a stunning place. Lush foliage, crystal-clear, emerald-green waters and so. many. waterfalls. We wandered, gazed open-mouthed at the stunning water and took approx. 8968976 photos of the waterfalls. Couldn’t help myself.

There’s one area of the park where you’re allowed to go swimming in the water with a waterfall pounding down behind you, and it’s a little bit magical. If I could do it again, I would absolutely go first thing in the morning so you could swim by yourself – just to make the experience even more surreal. It felt once-in-a-lifetime and I had a little moment by myself as I hung onto the rope near the waterfall; I’m so lucky to be able to be able to do things like this.

Some photos!
