Split is only 58 miles (93 km) from Skradin, the scenic, riverside city at the entrance to Krka National Park. Traveling by private transfer or rental car is the quickest and most convenient option, a drive that takes one to two hours. Busses also run between Skradin and Split multiple times daily.
This 8-day tour of Dalmatia takes in some of the highlights of this coastal region of Croatia, including Split and Krka National Park but also other must-sees like Dubrovnik and its historic old town, the Pelješac Peninsula, and Korčula island.
By Rental Car or Private Transfer
Duration: 1.5 hours
If you're traveling to Skradin from Split by rental car, take the D1 towards Sinj. At Dugopolje, follow the signs for Zagreb/Šibenik and get onto the E65 toll highway. Take Exit 21-Skradin and follow the D56 towards Skradin.
Another possible route which is longer but more scenic is via the coast. Going this way allows for stops in Trogir (whose historical old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and Šibenik (worth a visit for its old town and UNESCO-listed buildings) on the way. Once you reach Šibenik, take the D56 to get to Skradin.
A private transfer is an even more convenient way to get from Split to Skradin—for more details, contact your local travel specialist.
Duration: 1 hour and 10 minutes to 1.5 hours
