I recently got the opportunity to visit Plitvice lakes, one of the most beautiful national parks in all of Croatia. It was simply an incredible experience, well worth every penny! Plitvice is located about 2 hours south of Zagreb (about 130 km) which made it a nice day trip. Here’s a mini map:
And without further ado, the PARK! I suggest allotting yourself 3-6 hours for it, depending on how much you want to see. The cost of admittance depends on which time of the year you decide to go. If you go off season, you will pay much less than if you want to go during “the Season” , which is from April until September. Prices can be seen here.
Now for the breathtaking photos!
There are trains that will take you to certain areas of the park, but for the most part, it’s a whole lot of walking. Be prepared and take drinking water and some very comfortable walking shoes. It can get very crowded during the summer months, as well as very hot. Unfortunately swimming is not allowed here. If you are visiting Croatia this is definitely worth a visit. So glad I got the chance!
See you soon, more to come!
