These waterfalls are a bit smaller, but awesome. There are lots of pools where fish are swimming around. There is also a boat ride as part of the ticket.

Great to visit for 1 day. Can take routes that are different lengths. Beware there are many people and can be difficult to get back by bus as they run once every half hour. But very beautiful and a must do!

Lower lakes are in the canyon, but everything is covered with a lot of green and that is actualy the main reason why this place is so stunning... special colour of the lakes... and you can walk alaround and enjoy the waterfals, really close to them... sometimes you may even feel the drops on on your face... it is really...

You should not missed to stroll in the Lower Lakes as all beautiful scenery are there. If you have limited time, you should start to travel in the Lower Lakes first. In any event, I suggest to travel the Pliitvice Lakes in 2-3 days

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
