Dinaric Alps and Krka River in the Balkans43.8N 16.5E
The Krka River, which flows more or less diagonally across part of this orthorectified image, is found in Croatia’s Dalmatia region. It has a length of about 73 km, and is famous for its numerous waterfalls.
The river has its source near the border of Croatia with Bosnia and Herzegovina (identifiable near the beginning of the mountainous terrain), at the foot of Dinara Mountain. It flows past Knin in Inner Dalmatia towards the south and enters the lake Prokljansko Jezero near Skradin.
Dinara is one of the more prominent mountains located on the border of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is best known for the fact that its name is the base for the name of a large mountain chain called the Dinaric Alps or Dinarides. The Dinarides are known for being composed of karst — limestone rocks — as is the mountain that named them.
Dinara itself spans from the Derala mountain pass (965 m) in the northwest to the Privija pass (1230 m) which is 20 km to the southeast, where Kamešnica Mountain begins. Dinara Mountain is up to 10 km wide. The highest peaks are Troglav (“Threehead”, 1913 m) and Dinara (1831 m).
