When speaking about the 6000 year long existence of the Skradin area, historians endowed with wisdom search for the reasons of that continuity in its location and geo-strategic position.
History always looks for great and sensible reasons. However, the truth is often much simpler
since people and everyday life are smarter than history.
Skradin is simply magical in its each and every detail. In the loud morning silence that gets under your skin and the stentorian traditional folk klapa singing that touches your heart. In the peace and quiet of the Visovac monastery and the burst of water drops of the Skradinski Buk waterfall.
In each moment of enjoyment of food which has skilfully managed to escape both fridges and freezers which would rob it of its natural aromas and has arrived thoroughly fresh at your table.
Such is Skradin, small, picturesque and filled with flavour, found at a point where the river
passionately embraces the sea.
Such is Skradin, at the border of reality and fantasy.
Such is Skradin, perfect, both in past and present
SKRADINSKI BUK WATERFALL
The cascades are composed of travertine barriers, islands, and lakes. They can be viewed throughout the entire year thanks to a network of paths and bridges that enable comfortable and safe walking. Several renovated water mills, rolling mills, and washing columns that for centuries have utilized the power of the river are also located at the Skradinski buk. Preserving the traditional folk architecture individual mills have been turned into souvenir shops, while others have been transformed into exhibition areas for ethnographic collections. The
Skradinski buk Ethno Village at Krka National Park recently received the prestigious Golden Flower of Europe award (Entente Florale Europe) from the European Association for Flowers and Landscape in 2006, in a competition among several thousand sites.
The Franciscan Monastery of Our Lady of Mercy, and the Church of Our Lady of Visovac, have stood here since 1445. With their magnificent grounds, they form a unique entity.
The monastery houses a valuable archaeological collection, a collection of historical church linens and dishes anda rich library, with several historical manuscripts, valuable books and incunabula. Due to the centuries of worship of the Mother of God, this island is often called Our Lady’s Island.
Roški slap is situated about 36 km downstream of the Krka River spring. The start of the barrier is made up of a series of small cascades (called the 'necklace' by the locals), followed by numerous backwaters and islets. Between Roški waterfall and Oziđana pećina cave there are 517 wooden steps.
Over the waterfall, there is a road that dates back to Roman times. Throughout most of Roški slap, the natural environment is pristine and of great interest to nature lovers. On the left bank are a series of attractive water mills, several of which have been restored and returned to their original function.
The complex of water mills at Roški slap is among the most interesting and prized ethnographic monuments in Dalmatia and Croatia.
