Skradin is a city with a history 6000 years long, owing to its unique location in the central Adriatic, at mouth of Krka river. Since the time of the ancient Liburnians, the Greeks and Romans, and the Croatian princes of old, Skradin area was vital to the road and maritime routes passing through here from all four directions. It would take up several tomes to describe all the places of historic significance in the Skradin area, them being constructed on top of each others' remains through 6000 years of civilization. The nearby Krka waterfalls, today a Croatian National Park, are all the more reason not to miss out on Skradin. Today's Skradin Marina continues to serve sailors, in a tradition that goes back, even beyond the time of the origins of the city itself.
