National park Plitvice Lakes is considered one of the most beautiful national parks in the world. Plitvice Lakes make wonderful blend of oak forests, meadows, rocks and lakes. You can explore them by walking along the lakes, by electric train or...more

Plitvicka jezera, Plitvice Lakes National Park 53231, Croatia
Get there early in high season as it felt like the whole of Croatia was there. I’ve joined a tour from Zadar, 2.5 hours away.
The lakes are a gorgeous green colour and so clear even in the middle of the lake you can see...More
We came here last Tuesday and after reading the reviews we decided to use entrance 2.
We got the 7am bus from the port in Split and arrive just before 10:30.
The bus takes you to entrance 1 first which is super busy, then to...More
Absolutely beautiful place. Walking trails are well maintained and constructed in a way to protect the area. So much to see and do, not sure if 1 day visit would be enough. In sunmer this would be a wonderful place to visit and very busy.
Have wanted to visit this park for a very long time and finally had the chance to check it off my bucket list.
It is beautiful, albeit very crowded. Unfortunately, the lakes, as nature does, have changed over the years. The top lakes have less...More
This park is beautiful. Well identified and groomed trails, but very rustic at the same time. Lots of boardwalks, without railings, take you and across flowing waters.
We had about 5 hours to see the park and it was just right. The park staff advised...More
Did not live up to its reputation. You went along wooden walkways, single file in both directions and at a pace totally governed by other people and the traffic jams. If Croatia wants to keep the reputation here of a good park to visit it...More
This national park has been on my bucketlist for awhile. Honestly, it was more spectacular in my head but don’t get me wrong. It’s incredible and beautiful and wow, the waterfalls and blue of the water are amazing. It would be seriously breathtaking without the...More
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

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 as some buses stop in a number of towns along the way and it’s then much longer than that. I believe the earliest bus to leave Split is at 7am and it gets to the park at about 10:30 am. It looks like the second bus is the 8:30 bus you have found. We stayed in Plitvice and spent two days in the park - there is enough to see, however a full day would also enable you to do the whole park. We wouldn’t personally fancy a guided walk as it’s easy to negotiate yourself. We saw lots of tour groups snaking around with guides but this means you go the route that they take you which are the busiest routes. It is really down to your own preference though. It did seem quite pricey too compared to the cost of bus and entry combined. We enjoyed our visit, the colours are fantastic and it’s a beautiful park - if busy at times.

My son visited in October and it rained a lot. We were there this summer (late June) and the weather was beautiful. The place is gorgeous--rain or shine--just stay nearby to the park and bring rain gear. Happy travels to both of you, and remember, "Hvala" means "thank you" (and it sounds like 'fala.')
