Plitvice Lakes is the oldest and the most visited national park in Croatia. It’s located in the mountain region of Croatia, between the Mala Kapela on the west and the Plješevica (of Lika) on the southeast. It’s packed with breathtaking views, which are rightfully a part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List. It consists of 16 lakes, which are split on 12 upper and four lower lakes. High lakes are faster and more indented, while lower ones are drilled into the tight, steep slopes canyon.
These lakes end with impressive waterfalls, where the Korana river starts. During the sunny days, lakes boast with surreal turquoise scenery, lots of water and waterfalls, while being distinctively impressive in a different way during the winter – spectacular frozen waterfalls and lakes and the white cover will leave everyone breathless.
The national park is open during the whole year, and it offers numerous tours, bicycling, mountaineering, skiing, and sledding. Considering Lika being famous for its excellent cuisine, there are numerous restaurants where you can taste local Lika specialties within the Park.
Near and within the park, there are numerous accommodation options available – hotels, camps, and apartments, but also households that offer accommodation near the Lika’s forests.
Although it’s hard to describe the beauty of this national park accurately, it’s one of the most beautiful natural riches in the world. Therefore, we would recommend visiting it at any time of the year.
