Water Paradise

Krka National Park is named after the Krka River. It is located in Croatia, central Dalmatia, not far from Šibenik. The Park protects the Krka River since 1985. The site is of stunning beauty – not only but mainly because of the waterfalls. It provides multiple habitats with a wide range of flora and fauna. It’s a water paradise with lots and lots of fish. The water is clear and every fish is perfect visible. I "fished" with my camera and I couldn’t stop myself taking one photo after the other. I was looking down in the biggest and clearest freshwater "aquarium" with twenty species of fish - most common among them are Illyrian ide (Leuciscus illyricus), Dalmatian rudd (Scardinius erythrophthalamus hesperidicus) and brook trout (Salmo trutta m. fario).

I have photos from 1968, when I was a little schoolgirl and seven years old. I loved the Krka waterfalls than and I love the Krka National Park now. I visited the park again in 2012 and 2013. My husband, my daughter and I shot so much photos, we could drown in them.

It is! I would like to see it in colorful autumn or even during winter with snow.
