Skradinski Buk - Waterfall in Krka National Park, Croatia
Skradinski Buk is a massive, clear, natural pool with quite high
waterfalls at one end and cascades at the other located in the Krka
National Park, in Croatia. It is the lowest of the three sets of
waterfalls formed along the Krka river. In an area 400 m in length and
100 m in width there are 17 waterfalls and the total difference in
height between the first and the last falls is 47.7 m. Due to the
wealth and variety of geomorphological forms, vegetation, and the
various effects caused by the play of light on the whilpools,
Skradinski Buk is considered to be one of the most beautiful calcium
carbonate waterfalls in Europe.
The rate of flow is 43 m³ a second in winter, 18 m³ in summer, with an average of 55 cubic metres a second flowing down Skradinski Buk annually. It is the largest travertine cascade system in Europe.
