The Imperial View-point of Skradinski Buk
The imperial view-point was built by the local populations in the Year of the Lord 1875, in honor of the emperor Franz Joseph of Austria, at the time of his visit with Skradinski buk.
The legend reports that:
Lots of people had piled up on the surrounding hills, of the shots were drawn in the air with the old guns, and the clamors of the popular jubilation accommodated the emperor. Struck dumbness by the splendid sight and this imperial reception of welcome, the emperor spent a long moment contemplating the beauties of the Krka river.
