Krka National Park (Croatian: Nacionalni park Krka) is one of the Croatian national parks, named after the river Krka that it encloses.
 
It is located along the middle-lower course of the Krka River in central Dalmatia, in Šibenik-Knin County, downstream Miljevci area, and just a few kilometers northeast of the city of Šibenik.
 
It was formed to protect the Krka River and is intended primarily for scientific, cultural, educational, recreational, and tourism activities.
 
It is the seventh national park in Croatia and was proclaimed a national park in 1985.
 
The Krka National Park is located entirely within the territory of Šibenik-Knin County and encompasses an area of 109 square kilometers along the Krka River: two kilometers downriver from Knin to Skradin and the lower part of the river Čikola.
 
The Krka National Park is a spacious, largely unchanged region of exceptional and multifaceted natural value, and includes one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems.
 
Skradinski buk is one of the most attractive parts of the park.
 
Roški Slap, located near Miljevci, is the second most popular attraction of the Krka National Park in terms of numbers of visitors. 
 
Inside the park is the island of Visovac which was founded during the reign of Louis I of Hungary, home to the Roman Catholic Visovac Monastery founded by the Franciscans in 1445 near Miljevci village.The park also includes the Eastern Orthodox Monastery Krka founded in 1345.
