Skradin has a big history for such a small town with a succession of empires all leaving their mark through the ages. Today, the town is most well known for being the gateway to the Krka National Park and its series of photogenic waterfalls, making the town a great place to spend a few days exploring nature.
Skradin holds another secret however, it is home to one of the most scenic marinas in Croatia and where Istion maintains its Croatia charter fleet. It is the perfect spot to start out from to explore Croatia's Dalmatian coast.

Skadin is perfect for exploring the Dalmation coast offering endless possibilities for those who enjoy sailing, historical exploration, nightlife, the tranquility and relaxation of numerous isolated bays, or all of the above combined. Skradin's central location makes exploring the 79 official islands and 500 islets of the Crotia coast a breeze with the Kornati Archipelago a short trip to the north and the islands around Split a similar distance to the south.
Our suggested route to the north of Skradin involves exploring the enchanting islands of the Kornati Archipelago, the southernmost of which make up the Kornati National Park. These largely uninhabited islands offer stunning rock cliffs with crystal clear waters inviting you to swim and snorkel for hours on end. For those who can drag themselves away from the water, the islands also offering many options for hiking and visiting landmarks including the Byzantine fortress of Tureta which was built during the 6th century and the Church of Gospe from the 16th century.
To the south of Skradin lie the islands off the coast of the city of Split. These islands offer a much different experience from those to the north in Kornati being larger and inhabited with historic villages waiting to be explored. Highlights include the islands of Hvar, Brac and Vis but there are many other options for those with specific interests or tastes.
