    Panoramic terraces

    by croisbeauty Written Sep 5, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are few panoramic terraces, in the area of the Lower lakes, which offering a magnificent view of the lakes, especially its the most attractive part which is called "Sastavci". Because of these terraces and views, that due to the configuration of the field does not exist in the area of the Upper Lakes, the main entrance to the park is made in the area of the Lower Lakes.

    More Waterfalls

    by shavy Written Aug 10, 2014

    Plitvice is probably the most famous national park in Croatia. And that's actually not surprising, since the vast amount of waterfalls that you can find here together make a day trip through the park to a beautiful experience. The park itself is roughly divided into a northern and a southern part, where some people choose to visit the park spread over two days out.

    However, if you brisk walk and also uses the ferry that you can carry, the largest more than you have to one day basically enough. However if you particularly enjoy, try to arrive as early as possible in the park so you can walk further., As it were before the crowds out of the park Once you have left the entrances behind you, there are many paths that you can choose from and thus you can avoid the biggest crowds that way.

    Hiking trail

    by shavy Written Aug 10, 2014

    Plitvice is a paradise for hikers and nature lovers. You can spend hours walking around to your heart and always will again be amazed at what you see. Footbridges lead visitors over the lakes. The park is divided into the upper lakes (Gornja) and the lower lakes (Donja). The path along the upper lakes treats you to a view of the many waterfalls and lakes. Then you can move it in close-up view.

    At the lower lakes, here are ramps built over the water so you literally at the foot of the falls state. There are several hiking trails available. The longest route takes approximately six hours. You'll see all sixteen lakes. You could walk for hours without seeing restaurants and bars, provide adequate water, especially when it is warm. Ensure good walking shoes. The wooden ramps can sometimes be slippery.
    Part of the route you can take a boat and a train. This is included admission

    RETURNING TO THE START

    by balhannah Written Feb 25, 2012

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We have walked the whole length of the Park, and are at Entrance 2, and now have to make our way back to the beginning, which meant walking back to where the Boat dropped us off.
    Here we queued in another area, where another electric boat would take us the short distance across the Lake.
    Located here, were many row boats that you could hire.

    From here we walked to catch the FREE shuttle bus back to Entrance 1.

    The Bus is known as a panoramic Train, and runs every 15 - 20 minutes, making 4 stops.

    Thankgoodness for the Bus, as after this very long walk which took quite a bit of the day, I was ready to rest my feet!

    WHICH WAY TO GO?

    by balhannah Updated Feb 23, 2012

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Along the way, we come across some sign boards, and this is where we have to make a decision of what route to take.
    With a good colour coded park map in my hand, a decision is to follow the route that will lead us to the Electric Boat.

    A good thing in Plitvice, is the signage, there is plenty, and you really should not get lost!
    Not only good signage for directions, but also for information on what we were viewing.
    I thought it was very well done and informative, a credit to the Park management.

    Stunning colours of water at Kaludjerovac Lake

    by croisbeauty Written Jan 12, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What you see on this pictures is Kaludjerovac Lake, the last one in a row of the Lower Lakes. The lake ends in a Sastavci waterfalls and from there it is transforming in the River of Korana. The water of the lake has stunning colours, in particularly on a bright sunny days. Along with the all other water surface of the Plitvice Lakes, Kaludjerovac Lake is intact and pure natural. This what we see is the natural colour of an lake water if intact and not very deep.
    The nature have created on entire earth many of such a miracoulosly looking alike colours but people managed to ruined the most of them by the industrial and other polutions.

    This beautiful National Park requires at least one full day to visit all of the places. The best choice will be to spend two days and enjoy the scenery and nature without any rush. I was so impressed with this National Park. If you are passing from Plitzvice, it is worth for a stopover.

    Along The Plitvice Park Trails

    by Mikebb Updated Jun 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We walked most of the lower lakes during the frosty morning which was good because we wanted to keep walking to keep warm. The trails are easy to walk and most have large sections of boardwalks, wooden steps with rails. However there are a few sections where you walk on the earth or climb steep steps. Although it was autumn there were still plenty of people out on the trails, an assortment of nationalities, but everyone was enjoying themselves. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, flat soles with plenty of grip and ankle support, modern sports shoes would be best as they keep the wet out. I would recommend visiting the park in October as the trees are magnificent, leaves changing colour and dropping to the ground, cool weather and plenty of water.

    Walk trough paths

    by codrutz Updated Dec 21, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Walktrough paths for visitors are clever, wooden steps and paths built right over the water, you can see fish from close distance..and I mean a lot of fish.

    You can also have a chance to fall in the water, but I guess it is not recommended for the sake of the fish. And you probably would have to get some kind of a ticket for that mistake :)

    The Plitvice has a sum of blue water lakes, contected to each other, with water pouring from the high grounds, forming waterfalls. These lakes are also a wonder to look at, and to have a boat trip on the bigger one.

    Lower lakes

    by IngaA Written Jan 29, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lower lakes are called like that because of their geographic location, they are just lower.
    Can't really say which of them are more beautiful, moreover I think it's impossible. All of them are breathtaking.

    Great, isn't it ?
