Croatia has long been proven as a hit tourist destination attracting people from all around the planet with its rich and stunning nature, culture and history.
The last two record-breaking tourist seasons brought Croatia not only excellent tourist figures but also great promotion thanks to many celebrities who visited the country.
Apart from famous musicians and actors, one of the richest people in the world today has been visiting Croatia for years, especially one Croatian town on the Dalmatian coast.
Even though Croatian tourists often neglect Skradin, Bill Gates named it ‘’his ideal place for summer holidays’’.
Over the last few years, the town of Skradin in the Šibenik-Knin County has been experiencing its Renaissance and becoming the hot spot for many world stars and travellers. The town that has long been hidden from the public eye has become a place to visit and admire its beauty and history.

Skradin is located near the Krka River and at the entrance to the Krka National Park. The main attraction of the park, Slapovi Krke (Waterfalls of the River Krka) is a series of waterfalls, the biggest of which, Skradinski buk, was named after Skradin.
It is also interesting to note that the most significant archeological site Bribirska Glavica is located only 15 km from Skradin, also known as Hrvatska Troja (Croatian Troy).
Skradin is absolutely teeming with wonderful sights and picture perfect views, thus, if you find yourself touring the Šibenik-Knin County be sure to visit, explore and enjoy this hidden gem on the Croatian coast Bill Gates loves so much.
