Hidden in the heart of the Dalmatinska Zagora region, deep in the rocks and karst and overgrown with macchia brush, stands a gem of ancient history: the Roman military camp Burnum.

It was erected at the turn of the new era, at a position that allowed for control of the passage across the Krka River. Burnum was the seat of the XI legion of the Roman army of Claudiae Piae Fidelis and IV legion of Flaviae Felix. Auxiliary units (cohorts) were stationed here in a small camp constructed in the eastern part of the complex.

Visitors can view the arches of the command building in the camp, the only preserved military amphitheatre in Croatia (near the village of Ivoševci) and several walls of the military exercises area.

Just several hundred metres from the Burnum archaeological locality, the Manojlovac waterfall (veza na Manojlovac waterfall u Prirodnoj baštini) is found, along the road Knin – Kistanje.This is the third waterfall in the series, the tallest and considered by many to be the loveliest waterfall on the Krka River. The waterfall consists of a series of tufa barriers, with a total height of 59.6 m. The largest barrier is 32.2 m high.
