Skradin - Eco-ethno fair

The town of Skradin lies at the point where Krka River plunges into the Adriatic Sea. Skradin is a distinctive and romantic Dalmatian town, whose locals are far known for their hospitality and everyone can witness this at the Skradin eco-ethno fair which is to be held on 1 - 2 May this year.
Presented at the fair will be Skradin traditional crafts, jewelry and costumes, handicrafts and culinary eco-products. The fair was launched in order to further encourage the preservation of indigenous traditional products and the fostering of old crafts and trades, which, while preserving the cultural values, make the area of Skradin especially attractive. Indeed, the beauty of Skradin area could not be resisted by one of the richest people in the world, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who testified to this in Forbes magazine.

The primeval connection of Skradin and the locals with the sea and the river reflects even today in their hospitality towards sailors, who can find a safe harbor, refreshments and entertainment in the marina. This is one of the most popular marinas on the Croatian coast situated in the peaceful, deep, inverted mouth of the Krka River, in the bay where the Romans had their port. It is precisely because of the beauty of Krka that each year many yachts and sailboats from around the world arrive in the Skradin marina. The Krka National Park covers an area of more than 14 000 acres on the central and lower part of the river Krka, whose seven waterfalls will leave visitors breathless. Especially standing out with their grandness are Roški Slap (waterfall) and Skradinski Buk. There are two very attractive cultural and historical monuments within the national park: the Franciscan Monastery on the island of Visovac and the Krka Monastery. Skradin is located fifteen kilometers from Šibenik in central Dalmatia and is one of the oldest Croatian towns. The town has a rich cultural and historical heritage that has lasted for more than two thousand years. It was first mentioned under its present name in the tenth century.
