Not far from Rasline, the walls of the sunken town are exhumed from the water. About these, popularly called "Gavan's courts", many legends are still circulating today.

On the island there are remains of the antique church of St. Stephen. The church is, because of the beautifully treated stone, almost destroyed. Part of what was left was almost destroyed during the Homeland War when the firefighter plane Canadair dropped the mass of water he carried in it.

According to the finds and position, some will identify the Great Mrdakovica with the Liburnian settlement of Arauzona described by Pliny in their travelogues. Indeed, with thorough archaeological excavations, with rich finds of metal buckles and jewelery, old coins and fragments of glass and ceramics, we can safely assert that so. There was a set of residential buildings made of finely-cut stone, connected with clay and later plaster. The village was enclosed by ramparts built of broken stone and divided by streets. Some buildings had carved rainwater collecting tanks. Still, the greatest value is the wide variety of glass-colored dishware.

St. John's fortress is located on the hill, 115 m high above the old town centre of Šibenik. It was built up in 1646 in the form of a star according to the project of the Venetian military engineer Antonio Leni, in order to protect the town from Turkish attacks from the hinterland. It is interesting that the construction of the fortress lasted for only one month and a half (six weeks) because the inhabitants of Šibenik were afraid of Turkish attacks so they helped building it up, too.

One of the first things that visitors see when entering Šibenik by road is the silhouette of St Michael’s Fortress, which crowns the pyramidal hill above Šibenik’s Old Town. It covers the surface of about 2600 m2. During archaeological excavations, architectural remains and plenty of culture-historical artefacts from the times of the Venetian rule were found, but also the rests of the material culture from the Iron Age, which proves the fact that the Croats built the fortress on the site of an ancient Illyrian town.

Today, this site is characterized by morphology and genesis typical of the river - the submerged lower river valley. The Krka Canyon is formed mostly in Tertiary, and after the last glacier, at the end of the Pleistocene 10,000 years ago, raising the sea level by about 100 meters gives today's appearance. The whole area from Skradin to the fortress of Sv. Nicholas is the mouth of the river Krka, so-called ria.

Vransko Lake is the largest natural lake in Croatia. This lake is actually a karsty field filled with water and a rare example of cryptodepression. Up to now, there are about 235 species of birds in the park, out of which 102 are nestling birds (mostly swampbirds), while the rest of the lake is a resting place during the migration or wintering. According to estimates, there are between 20,000 and 200,000 birds living daily in the wilderness park. The dominant feature of the Park is a special ornithological reserve, almost untouched natural habitats of waterfowl, a rare swamp system, great biodiversity, exceptional scientific and ecological values.
