The lakes are nice and the waterfalls are nice. the colour is really nice of the water. And the fish in the water can clearly be seen and make it interesting. I had heard how spectacular plitvice was that I was a bit disappointed due to my very high expectations. On a world scale it does not rate in my... More

Just thought I'd review all of these...they're all amazing...however long you're in Croatia for...make time for Plitvice! If you go at high water levels like us...expect to get your feet wet!!

Flooded at the time but made for an interesting walk. Still very beautiful. Our shoes were totally soaked through but it was worth it to see the rest of the beauty offered at the park.

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).
