With its seven travertine waterfalls: Bilušića buk, Brljan, Manojlovac slap, Rošnjak, Miljacka slap, Roški slap and Skradinski buk, the Krka River is a natural and karst phenomenon.

Travertine is a common feature of the Dinaric karst; only the most extraordinary travertine creates significant layers, which build the waterfalls seen on the Krka River. The travertine waterfalls of the Krka River are very fragile formations and are sensitive to environmental change and all human activities.

Only through the constant growth of phytogenic travertine is it possible to ensure the continued survival of the waterfalls that create the hydrogeology and landscape of the park, and form the foundation for its great biodiversity. The development and growth of the waterfalls are the results of complex physical, chemical, and biological processes. In order for travertine to grow, live, and age, it is imperative that the natural balance of the ecosystem of the Krka and Čikola Rivers be preserved.
