Skradin is a small town in the Šibenik-Knin County of Croatia, with a population about 3,986 . It is located near the Krka river and at the entrance to the Krka National Park, 17km from Šibenik and 100km from Split. The main attraction of the park, Slapovi Krke, is a series of waterfalls, the biggest of which, Skradinski buk, was named after Skradin.NameThe name "Scardona" probably comes from the Indo-European root *kwer, meaning cliff. The same root is seen, for instance, in Cersia .HistoryIt was an Illyrian settlement (Scardona) on the boundary between the Delmati and the Liburnian tribes. It was the capital of the Liburnians. It was better known as a Roman town, as the administrative and military centre of the region. It was destroyed during the Migration Period, and had by the 9th century been settled by Slavs.In the Medieval ages was one of the seats of powerful Bribir Šubić family. Between 1522 and 1684 it was ruled by the Ottoman Empire, then again up to 1794 by the Republic of Venice.In October 1683, the population of Venetian Dalmatia, principally Uskoks of Ravni kotari, took arms and together with the rayah (lower class) of the Ottoman frontier regions rose up, taking Skradin, Karin, Vrana, Benkovac and Obrovac.
