Rest area "Krka" among the best in Europe
The rest area “Krka – west” on the highway A1 Zagreb-Split near the Skradin Bridge is the second best European rest area. Against the competition of 101 such areas, two more Croatian facilities have been ranked among the top 11 – “Modruš – west” and “Lički Osik – east”.

The first prize in the quality evaluation project of European rest areas, organized by the European auto-club EuroTest was given to the Austrian rest area "Herzogberg", and the Italian  ''Castagnolasca" was ranked as the worst.  18 auto-clubs from 17 countries participated in the Eurotest program, most of them EU member countries, and the evaluation was conducted by an independent agency commissioned by the auto-clubs. The results are disappointing since as many as 17 areas were ranked as very bad, 22 as bad, 22 as acceptable, 29 as good, and only 11 as very good, among which three are in Croatia.

The program is aimed at assessing the quality of the facilities and service at 101 rest areas in the European Union, including the traffic entry, signalisation, hygiene, toilets, state of the walking paths, presence of horticulture, safety, hospitality service in the open areas of the rest-stop.

At the rest areas tested in Croatia, the neatness of the facilities, toilets, children’s playgrounds, accessibility of facilities to the disabled, number and appearance of picnic tables, lighting and other characteristics were assessed as positive.

The awarded rest area “Krka” is located on the left bank of the river Krka, where the bridge connects the two banks, on cliffs offering a view on the Prokljan lake, the magnificent bridge, river Krka and the town of Skradin. The rest area offer numerous parking spaces, a store, exchange office, a self-serve restaurant, a restaurant a la carte, a cafe bar, playground and many other pleasant details. “Krka” is located in the midst of a horticultural surrounding, where, among immortelle, lavender, rosemary and sage, the most prominent is the centenary olive tree. On the other side of the rest area, the ethno-eco souvenir shop is located, offering visitors exclusively domestic home-made products.

In 2007, the rest area “Krka” received recognition for excellence in providing service to motorised tourists.
