“Wow - lot more impressive than anticipated”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

The name Plitvice lakes is misleading as the falls are as much as the attraction as the lakes. We did a 4 hour route of the lakes and only covered a small part. We were lucky as the lower level lakes had only just reopened following recent flooding so the falls were at the best but you can see that even in the dry season these would still appeal. The footpaths are good and where needed boardwalks are provided. Photographers will be spoilt for choice

“Beautiful- even in the rain!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

We spent 4 hours here on a misty/rainy afternoon- and our only regret was not having more time.
We went with a guide- and while you don't really need one to see the beauty, he helped us avoid much of the crowds.
It had been raining for several days before we arrived, so some of the lower paths were closed due to flooding- and in some cases walking on the log boardwalks we were just a few inches above or under the water!
All the rain had made the waterfalls especially full and dramatic- and there are so many of them- We've seen many of the worlds great waterfalls- but have never seen the abundance that you see here and in such a beautiful and natural setting.

“as good as it gets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

magnificent!
try to spend the night nearby so you are fresh upon arrival to truly appreciate the beauty
two large paid parking lots across the street the 2 main entrances
note:they don't accept euros...one must have croatian money not only at the parking lot but the concession stands within the park
recommend use the pedestrian elevated walk over the street to cross
approximately 3 hours to make the entire circuit
descent at the beginning then pretty much a flat boardwalk till the end with an electric boat crossing the lake in the middle
there's a bus at the end to return one to the beginning (though it didn't run on the day that we were there forcing us to walk all the way back)

“Beautiful wooden boardwalks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

The falls were magnificent and we were lucky to be there when there were not big crowds. The paths and boardwalks and overviews made it a wonderful experience.
