first_imgAll visitors who at the point of sale Info center of the Fortress of St. Nikola will show a ticket for the National Park “Krka”, not older than seven days, will get a 10% discount on the basic price of an individual ticket to visit the Fortress of St. Nicholas. In this way, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful Croatian national parks and a UNESCO heritage monument and stay longer in our area. The director of the Nature Institute of Šibenik-Knin County, Anita Babačić Ajduk, pointed out that this is a significant step forward in the cooperation between the two institutions.: “So far, we have successfully collaborated on research projects, and now the collaboration is expanding to promotion and visits. Our two institutions are closely connected and the territory they cover. JU Priroda manages the area of ​​the source and mouth of the river Krka, north and south of the National Park. These include the river Krčić, the source of the Krka, the river flow around Knin and the entire course and mouth from Skradin to the Channel of St. Ante and the Fortress of St. Nicholas. The flora and fauna know no administrative boundaries and our cooperation is necessary in every segment. Visitors do not know the administrative borders either, so such joint actions are very useful. This increases the visibility of the site, but also ensures a controlled, sustainable visiting system. ” This is the result of cooperation between the Public Institution Nature of Šibenik-Knin County and the Public Institution “Krka National Park”.center_img Photo: NP Krka  “Krka National Park and JU Priroda are two related institutions whose main tasks are the preservation, protection, interpretation and sustainable use of protected natural and cultural heritage.
