    Plitvicka Jezera National Park Things to Do

    We follow this boardwalk around a cliff right above the rushing waters and come right before the tall and misty "Great or Big Waterfall" also known as Veliki Slap. The water tumbles for 78metres and is quite spectacular! You need to be a little careful here, as it was a bit slippery from the waterfall spray, and if you go too close, you will...

    Otok Krk Things to Do

    Within walking distance from Baška, there are several smaller beaches that are at least as lovely as the main beach “Vela Plaža”. I've never visited any of them in the summer, but I imagine they're pretty crowded, especially the first in the row – Bunculuka, which is a part of Bunculuka Naturist Camp. In the winter, however, you can have it all to...

  • Lower lakes (Donja jezera)

    5 out of 5 stars

    Plitvicka Jezera National Park Things to Do

    Kozjak Lake is the largest lake in Plitvice, and it is the one that connects the Lower and Upper Lakes together. Stefaniji Island, named after Queen Stefanija who came to visit it in 1888, is situated on the lake. It was interesting to hear the tale of how 30 goats drowned in the lake while crossing from the coast on to the island while running...

  • Blue cave & Supljara (Hollow Cave)

    Plitvicka Jezera National Park Things to Do

    Thankgoodness I had shoes on with good grip, because climbing up the steps to Supljara cave, I needed them. I needed to be very careful as the steps were made of stone blocks, were narrow and quite steep! I had to climb the steps as the entrance is over 20m high, and is looking towards the cascades and Kaluderovo lake. The cave is a spacious,...

    Otok Krk Things to Do

    If you've ever visited Island of Krk, you have most likely tasted the wine called 'Vrbnička Žlahtina'. This excellent white wine ('Žlahtina' means 'noble') is one of the best wines in Croatia. The žlahtina grape is very specific variety as it is grown only in the vineyards in the Vrbnik fields. So, why not pay a visit to the vineyards in the...

  • Upper lakes (Gornja jezera)

    Plitvicka Jezera National Park Things to Do

    Galovac lake is very pretty. It's supplied with water from three small lakes and supplies water to a series of ponds that are also linked by waterfalls. The concrete stairs over the main waterfall are no longer, instead they are covered by travertine and have now become part of the scenery. The Galovac waterfall is 25metres high and is the highest...

  • Baska

    Otok Krk Things to Do

    Baska is a large village situated on the southern part of the island. It has a very long beach of peebles and sand named Vela Plaza. Along the waterfront there are lots of restaurants, cafes, ice cream parlours and souvenirs stalls. There is a small ethnoghraphic museum in Baska. I didn't find it very interesting. It takes fifteen minutes to...

  • Fish, Animals & Wild Life

    Plitvicka Jezera National Park Things to Do

    Plitvice Lakes, and I was hoping to see some Fauna in this Park. I had read it is home to 120 species of birds, and that I may see hawks, owls, cuckoos, thrushes, starlings, kingfishers, wild ducks and herons. Depending on the season, maybe black storks and ospreys and flocks of butterflies. Animals, and maybe a Bear, or Deer, Boar, Rabbits, Foxes...

    Otok Krk Things to Do

    This is the first village after crossing the bridge. It also is the location of the airport that serves Rijeka. Seems like a long distance, but I guess they were looking for a flat plain. Omisalj has one primary church and a smaller one we did not see. The main church; Marijina Usnesenja; called by us Parish Church of the Assumption, is right in...

  • Jezero (lake) Kozjak

    Plitvicka Jezera National Park Things to Do

    The colour of Kozjal Lake looks just amazing, the picture was taken at the beginning of the lake at the position where ends the wooden path in between Milanovac and Kozjak.

    We have crossed the road from the Car park, and now are on the same side as the National Park. In this area is the Information centre which has a money exchanger. You may need this service, we did, as they will only accept Croatian money [kuna] for your admission to the park. The centre also has maps and other information on the park, plus a Map...

  • Punat

    Otok Krk Things to Do

    We did not stop here. It was a transit point for Kosljun Island-Monastery. It was out of season and deserted. Off in the distance were the wintering marina boats. We had lunch in a pleasant restaurant in the outskirts. This looks like a fine place to base oneself for a week at the seaside, especially with a car and information about sandy beaches...

    We are now heading back on the Bus, but instead of going all the way, I get off at the stop before the end. I know this meant more walking, but this didn't matter, as from the top where the Bus goes along the road, are excellent viewpoints that give a wonderful view of plitvice lakes, really this should not be missed! It wasn't far to walk back to...

    When walking the trails you are surrounded by trees, undergrowth, and pools of water, everything looking extremely healthy. It was autumn (fall) when we visited which gave us the beauty of the colourchange and carpet of fallen leaves to walk on. You have to be careful not to slip over on these damp leaves as you walk the trails looking upwards at...
