In the loud morning silence that gets under your skin and the stentorian traditional folk klapa singing that touches your heart. In the peace and quiet of the Visovac monastery and the burst of water drops of the Skradinski Buk waterfall. When speaking about the 6000 year long existence of the Skradin area, historians endowed with wisdom search for the reasons of that continuity in its location and geo-strategic position. The secret of ancient Skradin is hidden in the harmony of its good strategic position, in its fertile fields, in the depths of its rivers and sea and in its unusually beautiful scenery. In Skradin this harmony was also transferred to the social community through the Medieval Statute of the town written in Latin at the beginning of the 14th century, under the rule of the famous Pavao Šubić when Skradin was the principal town of Croatia and Bosnia! The original manuscript of the Statute is kept in Venice in St. Mark’s Library. Long ago in the 4th century Skradin was the center of the early Christian diocese. Even earlier than that, it was the capital of the Roman Province of Liburnia, and before that, the capital of Liburnia. Skradin had the first hydroelectric power plant in Europe, opened in 1895, at the same time as Tesla’s famous power plant at Niagara Falls!
