Skradinski Buk Waterfall

Skradinski buk is the longest waterfall along the Krka River. There are a network of paths and bridges for tourists to admire the cascading waters throughout the year. If you want to take a dip, the lower lake where the falls’ waters descend has become a popular spot for swimming. If you prefer to hike, you can try the 2,870-foot trail that runs from the towns of Lozovac and Skradin.
