240 beautiful islets and reefs adorn the crystalline waters of the Šibenik region, each of them clamouring for a place on your Adriatic itinerary.
The unspoilt landscapes of the Kornati archipelago or the mind-blowing waterfalls and lakes of Krka are both designated national parks and only two of the unmissable stops on your island-hopping route.
Kornati National Park
Kornati consists of 89 uninhabited islands, islets and rocks in an area of ??only seventy square kilometres. Due to the dangers of navigating through this maze of rocks, the Kornati feature many old lighthouses and islands such as Blitvenica and Sestrice, which are nowadays a destination for adventure-seeking travellers.
Krka National Park
With its seven travertine waterfalls at a total height of 242 metres and the Skradinski Buk, the largest travertine barrier in Europe, the Krka National Park is a natural and karstic phenomenon. The island of Visovac with its Franciscan church and monastery is also worth visiting.
Krapanj – Brodarica
Krpanj is the smallest, lowest and most inhabited island in the Mediterranean with an area of 0.36 square kilometres and an average altitude of 1.5 metres. It is known for its tradition of harvesting and processing sponges and is 300 metres from the nearest land, where the village of Brodarica is located.
Located 15 kilometres from Šibenik, Skradin is a romantic Mediterranean town with narrow cobbled streets, passages, arches and stairs and is located at the entrance to Krka National Park. Its history dates back two thousand years, accounting for the notable archaeological sites in the local vicinity. The entire town of Skradin is a protected cultural heritage monument.
Murter is a small place situated on the north-western part of the eponymous island which is connected to the mainland by a mobile bridge. This town is surrounded by numerous islands and part of them create the beautiful National park - Kornati. Be sure to visit this breathtaking national park. You can cruise around the Kornati labyrinth, dive or snorkle, observe the flora and fauna, explore the amazing islands or try to live among Kornat families. Murter is rich with sandy beaches, such as Slanica, Cigrada, Podvrske and many others.
