The Krka National Park is a spacious, largely unchanged region of exceptional and multifaceted natural value, and includes one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. Krka was proclaimed a National Park in 1985 to protect the Krka River and is characterised by exceptionally abundant and varied flora and fauna. Krka is rich in freshwater biodiversity because of the long geographical isolation of the catchment and has around 20 unique species of fish. Only a short drive from the coastal city of Split, it surrounds the middle-lower course of the Krka River and is intended primarily for scientific, cultural, educational, recreational, and tourism activities. Whilst on site students stay in a house and research base located just at the edge of the National Park. They will sleep in bunk beds in dormitories across 2 floors. Rooms are shared with up to 8/10 people, and there are shared shower and toilet facilities in the house. There is a communal eating area and lecture area and a garden.
