Plitvice Lakes National Park, Lika-Senj County, Croatia


What can you expect:

Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of the oldest and largest national parks in Croatia. In 1979, Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage register. Located roughly halfway between capital city Zagreb and Zadar on the coast, the lakes are a definite must-see in Croatia.

The beauty of the National Park lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls, and set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves, boars and rare bird species. The Cave of Šupljara is one of the interesting natural limestone caves in this area. There is a path across the small lake that leads to the cave.

The source of the Korana River is about 10 m from the Great Waterfall, where the Plitvice River divides into a number of smaller waterfalls that flow to Lake Novakovića Brod. The Korana flows from here through the gorge and then down towards the Golubnjača Cave.

Swimming is not permitted in any of the lakes.
