In work, and in life, it is always good to be friendly and kind. This is exactly what the interpretation guides of the Public Institute of Krka National Park are like. These enthusiastic and creative guides aim to teach visitors through a direct experience about the natural and cultural values of this area. Every excursion led by the Krka National Park guides is an exploration adventure, in which visitors reveal new horizons and learn many new things.

Numerous celebrities from the world of film, fashion and entertainment have visited Krka National Park, enjoying its natural, cultural and historical values. Most often they visit the park privately and discretely, accompanied by our guides. Famous visitors include: Bill Gates, Jon Bon Jovi, Gwyneth Paltrow, Valentino, Eva Longoria, Michael Caine, Quincy Jones, Chris Tucker, Kings of Leon, Will Ferrell, Lily Allen, members of royal families and many others. Our interpretation guides are prepared to guide every guest, including organised groups, and those visiting Visovac Island or the Krka Monastery, to share their great knowledge and even greater love of the localities they are interpreting. For our guides, interpretation is not just “a job”, but a way to share values, emotions and inspiration. Their interpretation is successful when the visitors have seen, experienced and begin to appreciate something in the protected area that was previously unknown to them.

An important part of the job conducted by interpretation guides is holding educational programmes for children. Through numerous workshops, they show children just how their conduct impacts nature, and they teach them about the water, plants and animals living in Krka National Park. In the park itself, they celebrate important conservation dates in the park with children, play outside with them in the fresh air, and visit them at the children’s workplace: in preschools and schools.

Beloved among visitors coming from all corners of the globe, from the Far East to the cold north, the interpretation guides of the Public Institute of Krka National Park are as loved nearly as much as the Krka itself. That is why we wish our guides, and all other guides, a very happy International Tourist Guide Day!
