The park opens at 8 am and there are lines waiting to get in. This place is over run with large buses full of tour groups. The wooden walkways are narrow so it's impossible to pass or walk at a faster pace. It ruins the...More

I don't think this was worth the 3 hr drive from Split and a 2 night stay in the area. Parking is 6 Euros and is 1.6 kilometers to the entrance. There you wait for the shuttle which leaves every 20 minutes. Then the ride...More

We got to plitvice around 9am to avoid the crowds, and took 'Route C' from Entrance 1 (you have a few different options of routes around the park depending on how much walking you fancy doing). The park itself is wonderful - never seen such...More

Take at least one full day and explore this beautiful piece of nature from top to bottom. There are not many more beautiful places on planet earth.

At face value just looks like lovely lakes and waterfalls cascading down. Not the most spectacular you will have seen if you travel (wales has some of the most amazing waterfalls), but very plentiful. The different types of foliage and wild flowers were very interesting...More

This National Park is, deservedly, the biggest tourist attraction in Croatia. The scenery is absolutely extraordinary. The colors of the lake waters are magical and mesmerizing. Well worth going early to enjoy

Amazingly beautiful crystal clear lakes. Easy hike around. Upper lakes become very crowded as the morning moves on. Lower lake sinking trails especially on far side from buses much less traveled. A definite must see.

The place is astonishing and overwhelming, but it's so crowded that I couldn't enjoy it. The administration it's not up to the job, they should clearly sell a limited number of tickets and limit tour groups as they overcrow and yell at every inch of...More

Hi - we did the opposite journey a few days ago (from Plitvice to Split), the journey takes just over 4 hours and we were on the fastest bus so doubt you can do it much quicker. It’s important to get the bus that goes direct... More
