Very nice waterfall. July is a not good time to visit, since there is so many people and the visit could not be much fun. It is difficult to take pictures or enjoy waterfall in a crowd.

This is the biggest waterfall and located at the end of our journey walking through Lower lakes Plitvice Park. Since the flow is so massive, ready to get wet if taking lots of pictures in this particular area. The path going to this waterfall is...More

The standout feature from the lower lakes. If you enter from entrance 1 it will take your eye straight away. You can walk right up to it but I advise to visit early or the will be queues.

This waterfall is quite pretty - if in fact you get to see it without tours and crowds pushing in front of you. My advice is to go early in the morning and get there first

Loads of people looking at this one; major destination for the tour groups and queues for the ubiquitous group photos and selfies. Still, very impressive. Try to climb up the 300 steps to get to the observation points at the top - numbers 5 and...More

It is hard to discriminate between the lakes and waterfalls as they are all unique and beautiful. Try to see as much as you can.

It's the biggest one (that's what its name means) and the most amazing cause you can see what God does for us to enjoy!

Hi Shelby. For sure you dont need any guided tour. There are various paths and choose the trail H and it will automatically cover most of the places you want to visit in Plitvice including Veliki Slap

yes, quite safe and gently sloping for the most part where there are inclines... but there are no guard rails along some water edges so holding hands may be necessary!

That is peak season so the entry rate is at its highest, like around $10-12 per adult. I think I stayed in that same hotel and you can walk to one of the park entrances. There is a free shuttle to the other entrance.
