Lower Lakes Plitvice are beautiful. Bit crowded in the holidays, but if you walk all the trails, it is less crowded. Take the boat to P3 and walk all around the lakes back to P1. Also the walk along the shore from P3 to P2 is wonderfull. In fact there are no differences between upper- and lower lakes. They are... More

loved the big falls... being in the heart of it all! At the end of the hike you see the big picture of exactly where you were when you were gazing up at the great fall!

As well as the rest of the park, this place is amazing. It has lots of fishes near the shore waiting for food. If you try to reach them, they don't even move.

the whole park is beautiful, don't just see the lower lakes which in itself is beautiful. Start at the top as you walk down you come to a boat which takes you to the lower lakes. One of the most beautiful places I have seen

We visited the Plitvice Park in mid-May, 2015, on a very, very rainy afternoon. The Park guide told us the Lower Lake trail was closed due to trail renovations and because the low clouds made visibility of the sights very poor. We were satisfied, on that rainy day, to hike just the trail from the upper lakes to Station 2... More

I wrote a more comprehensive review on Pltivice Lakes as a whole...but have to add how much I enjoyed the Lower Lakes! Walked through the Lower in the morning, and the Upper lakes in the afternoon, and far preferred the former! The Lower lakes were clean, clear, stunningly picturesque, a beautiful range of waterfalls across each of the lakes, none... More

The advice from a couple who've visited the Lakes four years in a row was to start your visit early in the day - ideally between 07.00 and 08.00 but certainly before 10.00, and from ST3. The reason is that the paths along the lower lakes fill up very quickly with tour groups. Currently - June 2015 (and expected to... More

The lower lakes have the largest one on site! I recommend to everyone that you need to hike down all the way to the last lower lake and witness the waterfall! It is truly amazing! You will get wet though due to the amount of mist that is generated from the falls. So bring an umbrella or wear your raincoat... More
