  National Park Krka
For two-thirds of its course Krka River flows through canyons, forming on its way to the sea numerous lakes and waterfalls. With its seven travertine waterfalls with a total height of 242 m, Krka is a natural and karst phenomenon. It is the largest travertine cascade system in Europe. The Krka National Park is located entirely within the territory of Šibenik-Knin County. It was proclaimed a national park in 1985. Skradinski Buk is the seventh, final and longest travertine barrier on the Krka River. Skradinski Buk is considered to be one of the most beautiful calcium carbonate waterfalls in Europe.
     
  National Park Kornati
The Kornati archipelago is located in northern Dalmatia, west from Šibenik. With 150 islands, islets and rocks, in a sea area of about 320 km² Kornati islands are the densest and the most indented archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea. In all, eighty-nine of the 150 islands, islets and reefs of the Kornati archipelago were declared a national park in 1980. Kornat, the biggest of the islands, comprises two-thirds of the park's land area. Although the island is 25.2 km long, it is no wider than 2.5 km.

  National Park Brijuni

  Plitvice lakes National Park
The park was inscribed on the UNESCO's World Heritage List in 1979, in recognition of its "outstanding natural beauty and undisturbed production of travertine through chemical and biological action".

The park harbours a grand collection of 16 terrace-formed lakes, which are mutually connected with waterfalls and cascades.

The administration and visitor center of the park are located in Crni Lug, a town on the eastern edge of the park.
