The cascades at Plitvice Lakes are unreal. You can't imagine how beautiful this place is until you visit. I stopped every 10 feet just to take pictures with various lenses. A local Croatian man told us you must see Plitvice during each of the four seasons--each is unique in its own beauty. We came in springtime and it was well... More

So many falls on a relative small piece of land. Where on earth can you see that and come so close? Only the Plitvice Lakes offer you the chance to enjoy the wonders of nature.

A stunning view with multiple waterfalls inside a valley of mountains. One of the most beautiful places I have seen traveling the world. To me this is heaven on Earth.

This national park is absolutely worth a visit! Around every corner, there is something new and beautiful to admire. Be aware that the wooden pathways, which can get slippery and which do not have handrails, can get rather crowded. Find a path that takes you up high for great views and far fewer tourists.

Unbelievable place, like nothing I've seen before. The water is clear blue and the cascades have about 100 m of waterfall.

The decision to follow the advice, given by a couple in their 70s who've visited the Lakes four years running, to arrive early and take the shuttle bus from ST1 to ST3 and start from there proved to be most beneficial. The overwhelming majority of visitors begin their circuitous walks either: from Entrance 1 to first visit Veliki Slap (the... More

Exceptional nature phenomenon! A waterfall fairy-tale! So many lakes and waterfalls. The journey completes with boat cross of the largest lake. Amazing place!

An amazing sight! No way could our pictures capture the sound and the feel of the experience of the cascades. My legs were so tired, but I did not want to leave this amazing place. Tops Niagara Falls for sure.....not to be missed!

What a wonderful place. Could not get over how amazingly beautiful it is. This is a must see for all people. It is a paradise. The photos don't do it justice. Loved it and would do more walks next time . You can easily spend two full days there. Put on good walking shoes. Take a backpack with water and... More
