Roški slap waterfall is found 36 km downstream of the source of Krka River. It was named after the Rog ( meaning horn ) fortress that stood on the right bank of the Krka River, southeast of the village Rupe. The start of the barrier consists of a series of small cascades ( called the Necklaces by the locals ), following by numerous backwaters and islets. At this section, the canyon spreads out like a funnel and the Krka River falls 15 m into Visovac Lake.
Roški slap can be reached by road from Drniš, Knin and Skradin or on the organized boat excursions of Krka National Park leaving from Skradinski buk. The tour lasts 3 – 5 hours and includes a 30 minute tour of Visovac Island.
The hospitality facilities at Roški slap are open from April to October. View the watermills, columns and weaver’s loom, take a walk on the trail along the Neckaces or take an organized boat excursion to the Krka Monastery and the ruins of the Trošenj and Nečven fortresses ( 2.5 hours ).
