Stunning landscapes—waterfalls, lush forests, rock formations—and beautiful wildlife await you at every turn in the UNESCO-protected reserve.
Travelling south on the road for Dalmatia, the remote Plitvice Lakes are Croatia’s most popular inland destination. As the country’s oldest national park, Plitvice is home to 16 emerald-green lakes connected by a series of spectacular waterfalls, stretching 8 km in length. The surrounding slopes are covered with dense forests of beech and fir, and visitors can explore the area following a series of marked paths and wooden bridges. If you enjoy walking you’ll want to spend a couple of days here – there are several good hotels within the park and private accommodation is available in nearby villages. Approximately 30 buses, on the route between Zagreb and Dalmatia, pass Plitvice NP daily.
