This rest stop on A-1 highway is 66 meters (200 FT) above the river Krka.

Nice story from skradin.hr web site:
When speaking about the 6000 year long existence of the Skradin area, historians endowed with wisdom search for the reasons of that continuity in its location and geo-strategic position.
History always looks for great and sensible reasons. However, the truth is often much simpler since people and everyday life are smarter than history.
Skradin is simply magical in its each and every detail.
In the loud morning silence that gets under your skin and the stentorian traditional folk klapa singing that touches your heart. In the peace and quiet of the Visovac monastery and the burst of water drops of the Skradinski Buk waterfall.
In each moment of enjoyment of food which has skilfully managed to escape both fridges and freezers which would rob it of its natural aromas and has arrived thoroughly fresh at your table.
Such is Skradin, small, picturesque and filled with flavour, found at a point where the river passionately embraces the sea.
Such is Skradin, at the border of reality and fantasy.
Such is Skradin, perfect, both in past and present.
The first data about the town of Skradin dates from the year 33 B.C.
Skradin had the first hydroelectric power plant in Europe, opened in 1895, at the same time as Tesla’s famous power plant at Niagara Falls!
The most beautiful view of Skradin extends from the belvedere and the bridge situated on auto route A1, en route towards Split. Due to its breathtaking view, this belvedere was nominated for the Golden Flower of Europe award for the most beautiful belvedere on European auto routes.

Slikano sa odmorišta Krka na auto putu A-1. Jedno od najljepših odmorišta na autoputevima. U daljini se vidi Skradin,mali predivan gradić. 66 metara dole je rijeka Krka, već pomiješana sa morem.
Skradin ima dugu istoriju,prvi podaci su prije više od 2000 godina. Imali su i prvu hidrocentralu 1895.
