The main attraction of the park..

And it was crowded. Getting there was like trying to force your way through a zombie-apocalypse. And i was there in October. I would'nt want to experience this in peak season.

A must see when visiting Croatia! Great place to hike and view so many waterfalls! Wear sturdy shoes for hiking, not a place to wear flip-flops!

There are so many different places you can take pictures of the falls from. Different angles and elevations

This waterfall is the most crowded place at the Plitvice National Park. It is a tall waterfall. You could spend 20 min here taking photos after you squeeze past lots of tourists to get here and then out. Be patient.

These falls are absolutely stunning even later in the season when less water falls from the top. The route that leads to them is impossibly photogenic with lots of flora, dense forest, beautiful outcrops of limestone, and lovely, clear lakes that take on a blue green hue from the limestone. Spend a lot of time and savor the views. Enjoy!

I was very dissapointed with Veliki Slap. Yes they are the falls with the biggest drop in Plitvice at 80 metres but that only qualifies it for a short visit. There is not a lot of water falling and it is often in the shade of another cliff. The hundred metres or so of the boardwalk leading to the viewpoint... More

There are many lakes and waterfalls in Plitvice Lakes. Make sure to have time to hike around! Please also see my review and pictures of Plitvice Lower Lakes.
