Amazing natural park

Beautiful place, lake are so clear and clean, path is accessible even for young children. It's a wonder of nature, must be seen at least one in lifetime.

No other words!! Do it!! We went in February when much of it is closer (the upper lakes) and were told only 1 walk was open but we found we could still walk around a lot of it, if you don't mind being cheeky. Icy/snowy and seeing the lakes half frozen was amazing!

Really beautifull place, but too many people in August. You can buy entrance ticket same day (and maybe this is the problem). Queues everywhere to take a boat, or just to walk.. Keep this in mind if your return by bus and you need to come back at specific time. The place is amazing.

This was a place we had been looking forward to visiting having seen pictures of it which looked unreal. We were not disappointed! It was absolutely beautiful, especially with the autumn colours of the trees. Another advantage at this time of the year was that there were relatively few people visiting so no queues and it was easy to find... More

It was a great experience at the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia, it's a must visit place if you plan to explore Croatia. Every review of this place I see online is accurate; beautiful, spectacular, stunning. To top the visit is having a cool place to stay while visiting the park and there are affordable private accommodations ranging from... More

One of the best and most beautiful places in the world. It's really worth going there. We were there in September so it wasn't too crowdy and we had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect for a trip like this. We chose the longest path around the lakes (it takes about 6-8 hours to complete) so by the end... More

I'm really not a nature or an outdoor person (but my wife is), and I was at first skeptical about this park and wasn't really looking forward to the long walk. Well, it turned out to be a very pleasant surprise for me. This place....it's beautiful! The lakes...crystal clear...fish looked like they were floating in air...absolutely magical! By the end...

This place is just as stunning as you would imagine! Simply outstanding. There are large crowds and the board walks start getting quite squished but that doesn't detract from the sheer beauty of the place. We went on a guided tour from Split and I would highly recommend this option.

We visited the National Park for three days in February expecting to find frozen falls but the weather didn't helped too much because the days before our arrival had been too warm and then we had foggy and cloudy days. Anyway the lakes and the falls are spectacular even when immersed in to the clouds. Walking in the midst of... More

The colours are so vivid and have to be seen to be believed. For the best views, I suggest getting there as soon as the park opens to escape the crowds, and then choosing Trail 'K'. This is the longest trail (takes 6-8 hours) but it really is worth the extra effort as the views are amazing. I spent two... More
