We are planning a day trip from Split to Krka park. Looking for opinions on venturing further into the park to see the monasteries. Is it worth the time and extra fees or should we just focus on the main waterfall area? We will be taking public transportation from Split. Also, should we plan time to spend in Sibenek?
If you have limited time and need to rely on public transportation, it may be more practical to focus on the main waterfall area, since visiting the monasteries would require additional travel time and planning. Ultimately though, the decision depends on your interests and available time. If you have a lot of time and a strong interest in cultural and historical sites, including the monasteries in your itinerary can offer a deeper understanding of the region's heritage. On the other hand, if you prefer to focus on the natural beauty and enjoy the main waterfall area, that can still provide a fulfilling experience.
Šibenik is also definitely worth visiting.
Thank you Maja. Do you have any idea how long we should plan at the park to do the monasteries?
A few hours.
We just returned from Croatia last week. We accessed Krka NP via local bus from Sibenik. 35 minute ride cost us a mere 3.60 euros pp. Sibenik is closer to the park than Split. The park is outstandingly beautiful and should be walked around twice. Missed the bus back to Sibenik and were forced to spend 3 hours in the town of Skradin...what a gem of a town, with sleepy quiet streets, wonderful restaurants and a lovely waterfront full of private boats and friendly locals. Best town we never planned on seeing. This is what Rick Steves talks about all the time. Just need to do some homework on bus schedules and asking locals for help.
