In addition to being clean drinking water sources, the myriad rivers in Croatia are often areas of exceptionally beautiful nature. This is why many locations surrounding the watercourses have been legally declared protected nature areas, national parks, nature reserves, forest parks, nature parks, protected landscapes or natural monuments.
The area of the enchanting Krka River, which gives life to the rocky area that lacks water in the summer, has been a national park since 1985. With its waterfalls and living travertine formations, the river constitutes a natural karst phenomenon that contributes to the abundance of plant and animal life. Its source, the Topoljski Buk or Veliki Buk, which provides the backdrop adorning the royal town of Knin, offers each guest a unique opportunity to relish the scene of water “dropping” from the 22 m high waterfall, as well as taste pure spring water.
