What Lurks on Visovac Island

Spooky

Visovak Island is a small island in the River Krka. A monastery is located on the island. Krka river is absolutely beautiful and I would recommend a tour of the small island. As I came out of the monastery, I noticed this statue. It was in a fenced off area, and it wasn’t immediately clear what this was. But it was pretty creepy. Makes me wonder what else lurks on this island.

Serendipity

Krka

No matter how much one plans a trip, unexpected things will happen. More often than not, these have led to the most pleasant experiences in my travels. I have shared a few photos from Krka National Park in Croatia. I was so stunned by the park’s beauty, I am sharing another. Some days everything comes today. The light was perfect, the weather beautiful, and the park is gorgeous. That makes it easy to take good pictures. I normally wouldn’t have gotten this shot, either, but our little tour boat broke down. Since we were stationary, I was able to get this shot. I really like it because it looks like something from the set of a movie (actually this park was the setting for the Winnetou films).

Paradise by the Waterfall

Paradise

As a child watching TV, I remember seeing people bathing by a waterfall in what looked like paradise and always wanting to visit. Of all the places I have been fortunate enough to travel to, I had never come across anything like what I had seen on TV. On a visit to Croatia this summer I found it! I have already posted a picture from Krka National Park and will repeat again that it is an amazing place.  This waterfall, called Skrandinski Buk, came close to that paradise I saw on TV. And you can even go swimming by the waterfall (which I didn’t do).

Krka

Krka

Krka National Park is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The park is a protected area around the Krka river. There are a series of rapids and waterfalls, and island with a monastery on it, and a gorge with stunning cliffs. It is simply beautiful. If you have the opportunity, plan a visit. Even if you can’t pronounce Krka, it is worth a visit.
