Visovac Island, Croatia

Visovac Island, Croatia
     Visovac is a little island situated in the area of the lower flow of the river Krka between two waterfalls in Krka National Park – the Roski waterfall and Skradinski buk. The island is owned by the Catholic Church.

Prior to human habitation of the island, it was only a "White rock" in the middle of the lake. It got today's shape thanks to the work of the priests that brought the land to the shallow water and separated it from the water with a wall. In that way the little island with its vegetation became a little paradise on Earth.
  Visovac is also the island of Our Lady of Mercy, one of Marian shrines in the Republic of Croatia.
