Vodice - Skradin
Skradin is a small, romantic and dreamy town located directly on the Krka River in the Dalmatian region of Croatia. It is also known as “The Gateway to Krka National Park” and is one of the oldest cities in the country. The place serves as the entrance area to the Krka National Park, which is particularly attractive to visitors because of the many natural waterfalls and almost untouched nature.
The picturesque backdrop of the Mediterranean city with its narrow, cobbled streets, the historic buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries, the emerald green Krka river in front of the door and the mountains are particularly attractive to visitors. In Skradin and the surrounding area there is a multitude of experiences on offer. There is also an excellent selection of local restaurants and a fine selection of local wines.
The city of Skradin has a turbulent past through different epochs and this is also reflected in the architecture of the numerous buildings. Stroll through the city center and discover, for example, the Orthodox Church of St. Spiridon, the Church of God with the bell tower or the rectory.
