A trip to national park and the oldest town of Croatian origin - Šibenik
National park Krka waterfalls are attracting more and more visitors each year due to its amazing beauties, location and important historical significance.
The area called Skradinski Buk is the longest travertine barrier on the Krka River. We will explore it by walking on a wooden walkway over the crystal clear river and through the forest.
The park used to have many mills and some are still preserved. A historical document from 1215 explains how the power of water was used for the economical benefit of the town. At the end of 19 century, Šibenik was the first town in Europe to get electricity from a hydroelectric power plant, built on Skradinski Buk.
With so much natural force available, it was a wealthy medieval town. The architecture of the once great city is the reason why everybody should visit it.
The Cathedral of Saint James is UNESCO world heritage site, built entirely from stone, using unique construction techniques for the vaulting and the dome.

Peter was an excellent guide and made our time in Split enjoyable and instructive. He was attentive to our needs, and since this was a "down memory lane" for me, he helped to bring back childhood memories. I do not have enough words of prise for Peter. He is THE BEST.
