Krka is a river in Croatia’s Dalmatia region, with length circa 73 km; it is famous for its numerous waterfalls.The river has its source near the border of Croatia with Bosnia and Herzegovina, at the foot of the Dinara mountain. It flows past Knin in Inner Dalmatia towards the south and enters the Prokljansko jezero near Skradin. The best known sites on the river path are the Visovac Monastery (Roman Catholic)and the Monastery Krka (Serbian Orthodox).
Before its outflow the river forms beautiful and well known waterfalls called Skradinski Buk, part of Krka National Park. Skradinski Buk is the location of the first hydroelectric power station in Croatia. This plant started supplying power to the nearby city of Šibenik on the 28th of August 1895, making Šibenik the first city in the world to be supplied with hydroelectricity. (the Adams Power Plant Transformer House near Niagara Falls was deemed operational three days earlier on the 25th of August 1895, but the transmission lines to Buffalo, New York were not ready until over a year later on 16th of November 1896)
