Plitvice National Park covers an area of 300 km2 which makes it three times bigger than National Park Krka.

National Park Plitvice Lakes is one of the most impressive and most preserved places in the world, you simply have to visit to fully experience its beauty.
The 8 km long lake system, surrounded by forest and 16 lakes is divided into upper and lower lakes. The lakes are connected by cascades and created by mineral-rich waters that carved a path through the mountains for millions of years.
The upper part consists of 12 lakes, including two largest, Kozjak and Prošćansko. The lower part represents a smaller portion of the total lake system, with 4 lakes.
The highest point is at 1280 m (4200 feet) and the lowest at 380 m (1250 feet). The largest waterfall, Veliki Slap, is 70 m (230 feet) tall.
The park covers a huge area, and there are 18 km of wooden footbridges and pathways, organized into different routes to tour the park and guide you across its stunning inter-connected waterfalls, series of cascades and lake views.
Other than hiking, you can also get around by boat and by shuttle.
Plitvice Lakes became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.
Open 365 days a year, Plitvice National Park has awe-inspiring scenery. Mother nature provides beautiful landscapes and unique ways to explore this National Park in each season, and no matter when you visit, you can expect extraordinary experience and symphony of sights, sounds and picturesque views.
It can take up to six hours to explore the lakes on foot, or you can explore the entire park in about 4 hours, using the advantage of the park’s free boats and shuttles.
We recommend you first catch the bus which departs every 30 minutes from April to October to reach the higher lakes, then hike back down to parks’ largest lake which is 4 km long, lake Kozjak. There you can take the boat which will get you to the other side of the lake, to a beautiful picnic meadow.
You can then stroll around the lower lakes, right to the Veliki Slap, the tallest waterfall in Plitvice and in Croatia.
