From Skradin, a small gem of a town over 6,000 years old, we set off on the river Krka to Skradinski Buk, one of the most famous Croatian natural phenomena. By exploring the interior, you will be rewarded with one more old Croatian capital, the town of Knin, and in its surroundings time will fly during an active holiday that will refresh your body and soul. In Šibenik you will be amazed by the Cathedral of St James, whose dome overlooks medieval stone buildings, and its narrow streets which, in the warm summer evenings, invite you to socialise in the attractive Mediterranean ambience of the town. If, at the end of your trip on the Routes of Croatian Rulers, you are not surprised by Krapanj, the island of sponges which carries three epithets: the smallest, the lowest and the most inhabited island in the Mediterranean, then, by cruising through the Kornati National Park, a famous nautical paradise, you will surely experience complete fulfilment of the soul with positive emotions as you watch the display of many islands, islets and rocks that, like nowhere else, dance before your eyes… https://croatia.hr/en-GB/Destinations/Regions/Cluster/Dalmatia-Sibenik
In the central part of the Telašćica Nature Park there is the salt lake Mir, characterized by being registered as a lake, although it has salt water, but also because the water in it is several degrees warmer than sea water and therapeutic properties are therefore attributed to it – this in particular refers to the part of the lake where there is medicinal mud. The water in the lake is shallow and saltier than average and is not completely separated from the sea, since seawater fills the lake during high tide through underground cracks. Not far from the lake there are 160 meters high cliffs from which you can see dolphins. So, let go of the land, stick to the sea and take a break at a saltwater lake!
