Plitvicka Lakes - I see waterfalls everywhere

This place is straight out of a fairy tale movie full of water falls, lakes and nature. I really loved my time here. I highly recommend taking an early morning bus from either... read more

We spent a day at Plitvice Lakes National Park. We visited the park on a Saturday, which could account for the over crowding. However, the cost of about 36.00 per person plus parking is a bit outrageous for this park. The boardwalks are fairly narrow, with really about room for 2 single file rows of people, both coming and going.... More

This place is straight out of a fairy tale movie full of water falls, lakes and nature. I really loved my time here. I highly recommend taking an early morning bus from either Zagreb or Zadar so you can get there in advance and start your day before all the tourist buses get there. This is a full day activity....

Plitvice Lakes was an amazing day hike! It's not as challenging as you would think. We wore converse sneakers (the walkways aren't the most stable so flip flops may cause you to slip and fall). We did the 4.5 hour hike and were able to see a lot. There are two entrances however we weren't sure which one was "better"... More

The park is amazing itself, it's worth the visit if you have some time in Croatia. You'll be impressed by the colors of the lakes and waterfalls. I spent only one day in the park (left Split in the morning and returned in the afternoon). It's time enough to see everything. Here are some things from my perspective: - You... More

Well worth a visit, quite different to anything we've seen before. Recommend getting there early in the morning to miss the crowds, we did route C which worked very well.

It is difficult to get to the Lakes using public transportation but it is well worth the effort. As you walk along a wooden walkway, there are amazing views around every corner. Best to start walking early as it does get crowded. The waterfalls were stunning.

The actual park is very pretty with gorgeous lakes, clear waters, fish and waterfalls everywhere around. Unfortunately it's the humans that ruin it. I came with the obviously misguided impression that it would be a hiking day in the park. It turns out the place is so crowded you are nearly always walking in a line of people within a... More

Was going on a tour of Croatia and was told we needed to go to Plitvice Lakes State Park. About a 2 hour drive from Zagreb, road directions were good but directions in and through the Park were a bit lacking. Thought we were on the "B" path tour but when we got to other side of the Lake the... More

What a fantastic place! We absolutely loved it and were just in awe of this beautiful heritage site. Recommend to go for the 3-4 hour route, this required a bit of walk (25 mins), coach to the far end of the lakes, walking back (2.5hours). Would not recommend this for anyone who will struggle with walking more than 3-4 hours... More
