The bus journey from Sibenik to Krka National Park (named after the Krka river) took thirty minutes, we were advised to get off at Skradin where we would be able to pay the park entry fee, that would have included a boat trip up to Skradinski Buk but we thought it would be better to get off at the first entrance and walk through the park instead.  So we arrived at the Lozovac entrance where we paid about 60 Kuna each for entry after we managed to blag a student discount without showing any form of student ID cards!  The park is known for it's waterfalls cascading along the river, the most amazing of which can be seen at Skradinski Buk.

  From Lozovac it took us about 30 minutes to walk to Skradinski Buk.  This is a pleasant walk dotted with look-outs for you to enjoy the views.  The guide book states how tourists can appreciate the various flora and fauna, I saw a frog, snake and a big moth so I'll leave it to you to decide how varied that is!  I was glad we didn't go to Skradin to get the boat back up to the falls at Skradinski Buk, don't think we would have stopped for so many photo opportunities on the boat!  There are few restaurants situated across the park and before heading to Skradin town we stopped for lunch at a place called Buffet Stari Mlin, where a meal and a couple of pints for two came to 175 Kuna (about £22).  After lunch, we continued our walk through the park and to be sure we were on the right path, asked a park employee for directions to Skradin town.  Although very helpful, the girl we went to for advice was doubtful that we'd make it to Skradin for the 5pm bus back to Sibenik, because the time at this point was about 4.10pm and she told us it would take an hour to walk there - I took it as a challenge and we made it in less than an hour - off home to Resnik via Sibenik and Trogir!!!!!
