From Gavanovac Lake onwards, up to the wooden crossroads which leading to a boat stop at Kozjak lake, there are trails on a tiny surface of the lakeshore. It is mostly shaded trail by the high trees and very refreshing since most of it passing nearby cascades and waterfalls. Most visitors walk it slowly or even taking a break and enjoying in refreshing air.
Plitvice lakes? Plitvicka jezera? Or simply Plitvice?
Croatian language can be confusing. The difference between Plitvice and Plitvicka comes from the fact that in Croatian we have 7 noun cases. So, the name of the settlement (in Nominativ) is Plitvice. And when we want to say Lakes OF Plitvice we say Plitvicka jezera.
So, if you are using Croatian then say PLITVICKA jezera (Plitvice lakes, Lakes of Plitvice). When using English it is better to say PLITVICE lakes.
When using one word use Plitvice, not Plitvicka because Plitvicka as the single word sounds strange - literally: Of Plitvice.
In other cases you may see: Plitvice, Plitvica, Plitvicama; Plitvicka (jezera), Plitvickih (jezera), Plitvickim (jezerima). No, it's not confusing at all ;)
The entrance price (year 2003) for Plitvice Lakes NP is now quoted between 6 euros in low season and 12 euros in high season. Note that on the ticket there's a map - it's very basic but it'll get you around. All trails are clearly signposted, and for most of the time you'll have to walk on wooden "platforms" above the ater - so it's really impossible to get lost. Shall you stay longer than a day in the park, remember to ask your hotel to restamp the ticket - so that you can reuse it another day (and free of charge)
