    Reaching Plitvice by car

    Car parking on Entrance 2

    Plitvice lakes national park is located aproximately halfway between Zagreb and the coast, making it an ideal stop and easily reachable from both destinations.

    State road D1 runs through the park and on both entrances there are large car parks where you can leave your car and continue on foot.

    Note that the new A1 highway (Zagreb - Split) does not run through Plitvice - if you want to visit it, coming from Zagreb, exit the highway in Karlovac and continue along the D1.

    From Zagreb it's about 2 hours drive to Plitvice, same from Zadar and somewhat longer from Split.

    Getting to Plitvice by car

    by 7_seconds Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Take croatian A1 highway which connects Zagreb and Split (and goes further down south too, Ploce, Dubrovnik...).
    Take the exit towards Gornja Ploča, Plitvička jezera, Korenica, Udbina. Pass by JoŇ°an and follow signs to Plitvice lakes. The road is well marked. It will take you about 45 mins-1 hour form highway exit to center of Plitvice.

    Highway 1

    Along with several hundred German motorcyclists, we arrived at Plitvice Lakes National Park via Croatia's Highway 1, which runs from Zagreb all the way to Split. This road goes right through the park.

    Be careful with highway toll guards. The highway fee when coming from Lubjana towards Zagreb costs 6 KN, but guards try to charge you 6 Euro instead. They also try, if you pay wih an Euro bill, to give change in KN at totally wrong change reates. Happened 3 April 2013.
