Beautiful waterfalls and shoals. We want in summer in tourist season and the park infrastructure was poor and not able to handle amount of visitors. The hike through the park can involve short ferry rides to get from place to place in the park. People were lined up and waiting for almost an hour in the hot sun for ferries.... More

I have never seen anything like Plitvice Lakes it was such a beautiful experience. The reason that the lakes only receive 4 out of 5, is because of the large amount of people. Arm yourself with patience of you go in high season, we were there on a Monday and thought it probably wouldn't be that bad, but there was... More

Although we are a bit of travel-snobs (seen really great national parks in China, Indonesia and Peru) we had a really good time at the Plitvice Lakes. We started at 7 AM and that was the best idea so far. There weren't many people in the park yet. So we could enjoy nature on it's best. We took route K,... More

The journey time to get here from the coast is very long it should be about 3 hours from Opatija which is one of the nearest resorts to the park. On our trip it was 4.5 hours due to a misunderstanding from the excursion company we were meant to pick up 11 guests in Rijeka who did not show up... More

The lakes are very beautiful and full of fish as there is no fishing allowed here. To avoid pollution in the lakes, electrically powered boats ferry visitors up and down. We visited in July when it was extremely hot and extremely crowded, you had to keep moving forward on the path because of all the people following behind and you... More

One of the most beautiful place I have been! If you go with small kids, don't take stroller because there are too many stairs and roads going up and down. We went with a 3 year old girl and we were able to make the trail F. Kids enjoy the boat and the train ride! Must go!!!

It is one of the most amazing places I've been in my entire life. Although it is very crowded I enjoyed every part of it. Parking is not very good if you don't go early in the morning. The tour signs ( A, B, etc...)are very clear and easy to follow. I advise everyone to spend a day there. Don't... More

Granted, there are many more beautiful places in the world. But this is a place you must visit in Croatia / Eastern Europe Visited as part of a tour. Only had time for lower lakes and the ferry If you come as independent traveller, should reserve time for upper lakes (whole thing should take 3-4 hours max) The hiking trails... More
