Plitvice National Park, with its beautiful lakes and waterfalls, is one of Croatian’s natural treasures. During our visit, although canyon in Lower Lakes was closed because officials were cleaning fractured rock mass, we could enjoy a walk uphill (through Route C) toward Upper Lakes. A...More

First time visiting the park there was still snow and the upper part was closed. It was still beautiful and took about four hour before we were freezing to much. The big waterfall was amazing and the snow in the park did contribute to it...More

It was truly spectacular, the natural beauty was awe inspiring, at every turn we were in for a surprise. It was relaxing and each person can do it at their own pace.

Well worth the walk as it is beautiful. We only toured the upper lakes. The only drawback is that the parking lots are about as far away as they can be, and uphill of course.

We visited during the birthday celebrations of Plitvice National Park earlier in the month. We took walk 'B' and enjoyed the walk + complementary boat ride.

Actually Zadar is closest. It's 2-3 hours drive by bus and it depends on the traffic. I went from Zadar, and it it was 2h drive both ways. :)
