National Park „Krka“ is known in Croatia for many lakes and waterfalls, which are made from Krka River. National Park (NP) was declared in January 24, 1985. The most famous natural beauty of this park are waterfalls Roški slap, Skradinski buk and lake Visovac, which together with other waterfalls and lakes, are a natural karst phenomen. NP „Krka“ presents recent travertine formation process as a result of the dynamic process of physical and chemical interactions and living organisms in the water. Travertine is the name for calcium carbonate (limestone) which is deposited on various substrates in running waters. Algae and moss have an important role in the formation of travertine, and also invertebrate fauna. Intesive use of natural resources in the basin of Krka River, such as water supply, electricity production in industry, transport, fisheries, tourism and recreation are the reason for the multiple and ambiguously evaluation of the Krka River environment. The priority task of conservation is to preserve water quality of the Krka and Čikola rivers, and it is necessary to create a management plan for NP „Krka“ on the principle of sustainable development and environmental protection.
