Travel Agency
“Stretching from the western foot of the Dinaric Range into the sea near Šibenik, the 73km Krka River and its wonderful waterfalls define the landscape of Krka National Park. The waterfalls are a karstic phenomenon: over millennia river water has created a canyon up to 200m deep through limestone hills. It's the most dramatic natural sight in the region, but there are also several artificial sights within the park that are well worth the effort to reach.”

From Roški falls the river once again turns into an elongated lake named Visovac. There is a little islet in the middle of the lake and it is the name of this islet - Visovac; where the lake got its name from. On the islet there is a church and Franciscan monastery which add secrecy to the lake and islet. The first settlers on the island were Augustinians (nomads) in the 14th century and it was them who built the church and monastery. In the year 1440 Franciscans arrive from Bosnia, who were chased away by the Turkish invasion. They were able to stay there until today, bringing with them their valuable collection of books, art, and even 630 Turkish documents.
