Plitvice Lakes National Park - Croatia

Updated: Jan 16

Croatia has magical lakes and waterfalls; it was utterly mesmerising, the vivid colours and raw nature walk through the Park. We were overwhelmed by the crystal clear waters and exceptionally well-maintained Park.

They have well-planned walks for everyone, from an excellent relaxed trek lasting 2 hours to a more expert level all day. We opted for the 2-3 hour walk, and it was perfect for enjoying the wonderful Park, a short boat ride and a stroll with magnificent views of the magical lakes and waterfalls. Once you are finished, a shuttle bus will wait to return you to the entrance, where you will have a short walk back to the car park.

We chose 'Program E' for Easy:-) It starts at the southern entrance to the Park ("Entrance 2"). The tour is circular and includes the area of ​​"Upper Lakes". The program includes a short boat ride across Lake "Kozjak" and a walk upstream to Prošćansko Lake. Return to the starting point is by panoramic train. Experience the idyllic beauty of the peaceful and spacious "Upper Lakes" with wooded shores and their most attractive waterfalls ", Veliki" and "Mali prštavcima", as well as many smaller waterfalls.

Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of Croatia's oldest and largest national parks; 1979 it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Register.

The National Park was founded in 1949 and is in the mountainous karst area of central Croatia, at the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina. The important north-south road that passes through the national park area connects the Croatian inland with the Adriatic coastal region.

The protected area extends over 296.85 square kilometres (73,350 acres). About 90% of this area is Lika-Senj County, while the remaining 10% is Karlovac County.

The National Park is world-famous for its lakes arranged in cascades. Sixteen lakes can be seen from the surface. The lakes are renowned for their distinctive colours, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue. The colours change frequently depending on the number of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of sunlight.
