Krka National Park, which is one of Croatia’s most breathtaking natural wonders, celebrates 37 years since it was declared a National Park this weekend.
To celebrate the occasion, Krka National Park will be offering visitors free entry to the park this weekend, as well as an exhibition of an emotional series of photographs titled “People from Krka”.
On the 24th of January 1985, an area of 142 km2 from the early Croatian fortresses of Trošenj and Nevčen to the Šibenik bridge, including 3.5 km of the course of the Čikola River, was proclaimed a national park by the Croatian Parliament.
The park also belongs to the southern European, Mediterranean region in the zoo-geographic terms and boasts 45 species of mammals, including 17 species of bats.
Over a million tourists visit Krka National Park a year. The aim is to one day get Krka National Park added to the UNESCO World Heritage list. Another Croatian National Park – Plitvice Lakes – was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1979.
