Plitvice is a very nice and beautiful park. We were a bit nervous about all the comments about visiting this park in August as it gets very very busy. And it does get very busy, so just make sure you be there at 7AM when it opens. That is what we did and although there were many early birds, we... More

I had never seen such color water in lakes before. Amazing. You can see the fish and everything at the bottom of the lake.

A boat is commonly used to get between the two (upper and lower) lakes. It is the quickest and most effective use of time. The lakes are surrounded by travertine rocks which give the water its distinctive hue.

Tastes are subjective, but the lower lakes are arguably even more beautiful than the upper lakes because they are situated in a canyon. There are also plenty of fish in the lakes, and a cave leading into the canyon. Easily accessible from Plitvice Entrance 1, or by ferry from Entrance 2. However, if you have the time for it, you...

Really enjoyed the boat ride. Stop to have lunch and a bit of a break to continue on with your day of hiking.

The most clear water ever seen!!! A lot of fishes and... threes underwater, I wish I could do some snorkeling around. Sure any bath or other is forbidden.

There are not enough words to describe the beauty of this place. Mother Nature at her best. The National park is very well planned and easy to move around. Staff are knowledgeable and helpful. There are plenty of facilities available as you move through the park.

The water is so clear and beautiful it's unbelievable! From what they told me you can even drink directly from the streams as no pollution. Plitvice Ntl. Park is a must see for all visiting Croatia.

Only fish but so lovely to watch in the wonderfully clear water of the lakes. These lakes invariably have tiny waterfalls tumbling over large stones into them, often very fast. Gorgeous!
