Skradinskyi Buk is the biggest barrier, which consists of more then 20 waterfalls. These waterfalls are connected into one and this is the place, where Krka river ends and mixes with the waters from the sea.

The banks of the river in Krka are of stone. But there is a nice place in the park which is suitable for swimming. During hot summer days you can see a lot of people swimming. Travel guides taking excursions to the park usually inform tourists in advance that they can take swimming suites with them for this trip.
