Skradin

Skradin

When speaking about the 6000 year long existence of the Skradin area, historians endowed with wisdom search for the reasons of that continuity in its location and geo-strategic position. History always looks for great and sensible reasons. However, the truth is often much simpler since people and everyday life are smarter than history.

Skradin is simply magical in its each and every detail. In the loud morning silence that gets under your skin and the stentorian traditional folk klapa singing that touches your heart. In the peace and quiet of the Visovac monastery and the burst of water drops of the Skradinski Buk waterfall. In each moment of enjoyment of food which has skilfully managed to escape both fridges and freezers which would rob it of its natural aromas and has arrived thoroughly fresh at your table.

Such is Skradin, small, picturesque and filled with flavour, found at a point where the river passionately embraces the sea. Such is Skradin, at the border of reality and fantasy. Such is Skradin, perfect, both in past and present.

Town core

Skradin is a romantic Mediterranean town with narrow paved streets, passages, vaults and stairs. The entire town core represents a protected cultural monument. It contains houses dating from the 18th and 19th century which are stuccoed inthe manner typical for Venice and areas under her influence.

On the streets of Skradin you will find the pleasant atmosphere of a small Dalmatian town, especially during the Skradin festival of klapa singing (a capella singing typical for the Croatian Adriatic) or during the celebration of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary.
