Krka became the 7th national park in Croatia on 24 January 1985. The Park is located in central Dalmatia (downstream of Miljevci, only a few kilometres northeast of the city of Šibenik). It encompasses the area along the river Krka – after which it was named. The river springs at the foot of the Dinara Mountain near Knin, flows through the canyon 75 km long, flows through Lake Prokljan and flows into the Bay of Šibenik. It stretches over 142 km2 (25.6 km2 of which is water surface). There are seven tuff waterfalls on river Krka: Bilušića buk, Brljan, Manojlovac waterfall, Rošnjak, Miljacka waterfall, Roški waterfall and Skradinski buk- the largest waterfall area in the Mediterranean (46m).
