Krka National Park from Split

Krka National Park is very easily reached from a number of places – Sibenik is the closest large town to the park, although both Split and Zadar are also reasonably close. Due to its proximity to the coastline, the majority of Krka National Park’s visitors are those that find themselves travelling either down the Croatian coast.
The nearest airport is Split Airport, at just under an hour’s drive away; Zadar Airport is just over an hour’s drive away. From either airport, transfer first to the main bus station in that city and then travel on to Skradin, which is where one of the entrances to the Park is.
