Dalmatia Weekend Adventure perfect Combo Experience

This great Dalmatia Weekend Adventure is based in a small picturesque town of Skradin. It is a unique town on the very edge of the Krka River National Park. The town is famous for its turbulent, 6000 years old past. It is one of the oldest Croatian towns which has begun writing its history since the time of the Illyrians. It received its name during the Roman rule – Scardona. After the Roman Scardona had been ruined and robbed to the very foundations, the Croats rebuilt the town and named it Skradin. Skradin is an attractive tourist destination with an authentic stone town core. In its vicinity there are numerous attractive sites: Skradinski and Roski waterfall, as well as a small island of Visovac with a Franciscan monastery. It is located in Central Dalmatia, a region known for its long beaches and pine woods.
