Once on the other side, benefit either from a roughly 1-hour complimentary guided tour of Krka, or the freedom to explore on your own.

Whether it’s of flowing waterfalls at Skrandinski Buk, historical flour mills, or wood trails, snap some photo opportunities of the unbelievable scenic views in front of you. If you are traveling during the high season (June-September), board a bus to the postcard-worthy town of Primošten. Enjoy a couple of hours in this medieval island town to swim, eat, sample wine tasters, or take a scenic stroll.
