After a long weekend in Hvar we took the ferry back to Split and rented a car to drive up to Istria, the largest (and a super beautiful!) peninsula in the Adriatic Sea. We decided to break up the 6h way from Split to Pula by visiting the waterfalls in the Krka National Park that is located approx. 70 mins from Split.
Bring your bikini…
The Krka National Park offers a range of sights from beautiful waterfalls to a tiny island (Visovac) in the Krka river that was settled by Franciscan monks in 1445. If the weather is hot you can also swim in some parts of the waterfalls :) We didn’t have enough time to visit the island as we had to continue our drive up to Pula so there are no photos of it in this post. The Visovac island is supposed to be very pretty and quaint though, so if you have a bit more time in the Krka National Park, make sure to check it out.
.. and comfy shoes!
It takes around 20-30 mins to walk from the visitor centre to the waterfalls. It’s a hiking path though, so you’d need some comfy shoes. There is also a shuttle bus that takes you from the visitor centre to the waterfalls and back. We decided to hike to the waterfalls and take the bus back :)
There is a pathway that leads through all the different little and bigger waterfalls in this part of the Krka National Park. It took us around one hour for the whole way but we stopped a lot of times and we also had a break for swimming.
Aren’t the Krka waterfalls super stunning? The entire area looks like an enchanted forest from a fairytale! To see for yourself, book your trip to Croatia! It’s such a beautiful country with extremely friendly people. I will post more about my Croatia trip soon! X
