Zrmanja at Berberov Buk
Our website would like to introduce Zrmanja, one of Croatia's most beautiful rivers. Starting from its spring located between Gračac and Knin, under an almost vertical 200 meters tall rock wall of Misije, Zrmanja travels 69 kilometers towards south and then to west to reach its end in Novigradski Sea. At several of its sections the river created its valley and canyon with several stunning waterfalls, rapids and riffles. In summer months due to the karstic nature of the ground area the river bed water often escapes the river between Mokro Polje and Ervenik, then, tributaries and springs fill again the river bed downstream from Ervenik.

Mainly at the upper sections of the river, at the locations where steep valley and canyon walls don't prevent access to the water, villages, hamlets, mills and bridges are settled along the river - besides Cetina and Krka, Zrmanja is considered to be one of the three most important rivers in early Croatian history. The river shares a similarly important role in the history of Dalmatian Serbs, too - up to the Balkan wars of the 1990s, ethnic Serbs constituted the majority of the population in the Zrmanja area. With its foundation in the middle ages Krupa, one of the three main monasteries of the Serbian Orthodox church in Dalmatia is located by Zrmanja's tributary river, Krupa.

The eye catching views, the pristine waters, the contrast of lush vegetation and karstic bare rocks attracts a growing number of visitors to Zrmanja. With the almost exception of Berberov Buk, fortunately enough, one shouldn't expect masses at the river area - and being so, Zrmanja is very much open for exploring pleasures.
