    Small waterfalls

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 9, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Here what exist is reality, the sources, rivers and tributaries of the waters, then the soft stone and the hard, the expanses of water and forest. The falls endure, they live, they grow and collapse, they construct and deconstruct their peaks and their bed, they bubble and mirror, and turn into a fine spray of droplets.

    Fondest memory: This picture was taken in between the lakes of Kozjak and Gradinsko, which are rich of th many small waterfalls.

    Waterfalls near Gradinsko Lake

    by croisbeauty Updated Jun 13, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The unexpected sight of the lakes, and the little further off, the view of the noisy cascade of the falls of the Plitvice brook will astonish everyone with the contrast, the entire unexpectedness of it, in the midst of all this stone, surrounded with its forest greenery. The lakes are constantly fed by the streams of Bijela rijeka (White river), Crna rijeka (Black river) and Rjecica (Brook), from the subterranean retentions of the karst hinterland.

    Fondest memory: One of many small waterfalls in between the Lakes of Gradinsko and Galovac.

    Waterfalls between Galovac and Gradinsko lakes

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 11, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Water is synonym for life, for prosperity and here in the stony reality of Plitvice it is a miracle and a builder. Water gives health, it renews and changes, it is the first mother of the grass, the flowers and the forest, of everything that burgeons and grows, everything that multiplies, of everything that lives in these, as they were called, "devil's gardens".

    Fondest memory: This is the area in between Gradinsko and Galovac Lakes, which is also rich of small waterfalls.

    Veliki prštavci

    by croisbeauty Updated Jan 13, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Veliki prštavci means the sputtering waterfall. It is situated in the area of the Upper Lakes nearby Galovacki buk. The nature has created a kind of amphitheatre with a curtain of falls. This is probably one of the most impressive scene you can see in the National Park of Plitvice. The waterfalls producing sound too which makes the whole scene even more impressive.

    It never looks the same

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 12, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I am regularly visiting National Park, at least twice a year, but it never looks the same. Sometimes it depend wether the sun is shining or not, but mostly it depend on the water. The very same spot looks different in the spring and summer time. In my experience month of May is the best time to visit Plitvice.

    Burget - waterfalls

    by croisbeauty Updated Apr 24, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The area of Burget is an mix of still water and lots of small waterfalls and cascades. It is a kind of labyrint with many wooden paths going up and down and around. There is no place for panic here, any path you chose it lead you to the right place. There excist no possibility to get lost in the area of Plitvice, if strictly following the marked paths.

    Mali Prštavac

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 11, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Mali Prštavac, (the Small Thunder) waterfalls is located in the area of the Upper Lakes, right next to its "big brother". The thunder of waterfalls you can hear is even more intense then around Veliki Prštavac.
    Do not approach to it too close in the cold days because very soon you be completely wet.

    Veliki Prštavci

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 11, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The view at the Veliki Prštavci across the still water of the lake. Even from the distance it looks imposing, producing thunderful sound you can hear from the distance. Many says it is the most attractive part of the National Park and certainly more pitoresque one.

    waterfalls

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are many watrefalls all over Plitvice. Most of them are at the cascades when lakes mend from one to the another, but sometimes they are in between, just appearing and disappearing out of nowhere!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Throughout Plitvicka Jezera Nacionalni Park are many lovely wooden walkways which take you across some of the lakes and also some of the smaller waterwalls.

    Fondest memory: I really enjoyed crossing them and looking down to see the water rushing underneath me.

    Plitvicka - Tal & Zohara

    by Martin_S. Updated Aug 3, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Plitvicka is a most beautiful park, but I can only compare it to my girls ...........^O^
    The park is composed of many small "lakes" and waterfalls. The lakes are tiny, almost pond size, but the hike around the park constantly exposes you to new views of dozens of small or large waterfalls. Some single, some multiple.
    There is no swimming allowed here.

    Plitvicka - White and green "rainbow"

    by Martin_S. Written Dec 26, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you take the time to look carefully at this picture you will be able to notice a "rainbow" of green shades, ranging from the dark green of the moss covering the rocks to the almost clear green of some of the small leaves. Throw in a little bit of white water and you have a perfect setting.

    Plitvicka - Up Close and Personal Waterfall

    by Martin_S. Written Dec 26, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Some of the waterfalls are so very close to the trodden path that you can get very up close and personal. This is one where you can feel the spray on your face from only a few meters away.
