You can make your way around the lower lakes if you walk quickly in a couple of hours. It's a gorgeous, tranquil setting. Amazingly beautiful. Take your camera!

These lakes are unbelievable, when you venture down from the entrance and see the colours against the rocks and greenery it really is like something you will have never seen before. The walkways, little and large waterfalls connecting the lakes are also lovely, small fish swimming about just add to their character.

If you have limited time, or fear a little climbing, this route is ideal for you: you get an overall image of the park, without making to much effort.

If you do not want to climb up and down. A visit only to the lower lakes is enough to experience Plitvice. Took courage and visit the waterfall.

If you want to start from something nice and cute in the beginning - take your route through Lower Lakes (by the ferry to P2 and then walk to ST3), with each step the waterfalls will get higher and higher. And just after that aim to the Big Waterfall (Veliki Slap).

We loved both the upper and lower lakes, but waterfalls are bigger and more beautiful at the lower lakes

Quite spectacular especially if the sun is shining - the colour of the water is amazing, so clear you can see all the fish swimming around and the ducks enjoying themselves. Well worth the visit - but dont go in season - its too crowded.

The lower half of the Plitvice National Park. Superb views and incredible scenery. Get in early to get the best views before the crowds arrive.
