Few places on earth are as deserving of worldwide recognition as the Plitvice Lakes National Park. With nothing but lush, dense forest and crystal clear lakes as far as the eye can see, walking through this park is like being transported back in time, to an era before mankind. Rough paths carve the way through the thick foliage, allowing travellers to explore the area intimately and catch a glimpse of some of the park’s indigenous creatures. Hidden away between the branches of the many trees are numerous steep sets of steps, which lead to various look out points offering breathtaking views of the entire park.Read More
The UNESCO-listed lakes themselves are best explored by boat and visitors have the options of taking part in one of the regular boat trips that sail from one area of the mainland to another or to hire a rowing boat and take to the lakes independently. One major benefit of hiring a boat is that it offers the opportunity of seeing the park at one's own pace as well as allowing rowers to stop off anywhere they like for further exploration with maps available
Naturally the top pulling factor of this national park is the plethora of waterfalls that sit around every corner. While swimming in the lakes is not allowed, the spray from the falls, as well as the water that bubbles up around your feet on the low wooden bridges, are more than enough to cool down warm wanderers. The waterfalls themselves pour down from as high as 78m, creating some truly spectacular scenery. There are also plenty of magnificent caves situated near the falls, which are worth venturing through.
