Skradin town
A street in Skradin

Best known as the gateway town to the Krka Waterfalls National Park, Skradin has an ancient history. Although there are no significant material remains, Skradin is on the site of the ancient town of Scardona. It was a Roman Municipium; it had a bishopric in 539 that endured until 1830. It became part of Venice in 1355 and passed from one occupier to another with the rest of Dalmatia. The Turks conquered Skradin in 1522 and walled the town but in 1684 it again fell to Venice.
