Plitvice lakes Croatia
When you travel to Croatia, there is the place you must see. National park Plitvice. Within the boundaries of this heavily wooded parkland, Plitvice lakes Croatia, sixteen crystal-clear lakes tumble into one another via a series of waterfalls and cascades. The waters rich with minerals carve through the rock, depositing tufa in regularly ever-changing formations. Clouds of butterflies drift on top of the 18km of timbered footbridges and pathways that snake around the edges and across the rumbling water.
It takes approximately six hours to explore the lakes on foot. Otherwise, you could slice 2 hours off by taking advantage of the park’s free boats and buses. (departing each half-hour from Apr to October). From Entrance two, catch the bus to the highest of the upper lakes and wander backtrack to the shore of Kozjak. Lake Kozjak is the park’s largest lake (it is about 4km in length). A boat shall whisk you from here to the lower lakes. Wherever the circuit culminates within the convenient named Veliki Slap (Big waterfall). The tallest waterfall in Republic of Croatia (78m). the trail then climbs steeply (offering nice views and photograph opportunities) to a stop, where you’ll be able to grab a lift back to Entrance.
If you don’t have enough time, the upper lake section may be completed in 2 hours. The lower section takes something about 3. However, we suggest that you simply begin with the bus ride. And finish with the boat to save yourself a climb.
Bear in mind that swimming is not allowed in any of the Plitvice lakes.
