A UNESCO heritage site, to say the largest national park in Croatia is attractive would be a rash understatement.
It’s most certainly worth going out of your way for while in the country, proving that not all the beauty here is along the Adriatic Coast only.
There’s multiple hiking suggestions you can follow once in the park, but my group found them to be a really rough guide line, since one of our walks was a suggested 3 hours and we finished it in about half the time.
I really wouldn’t consider myself overly fit either! So, I would think most could easily fit in at least a couple different hikes into one day to enjoy a few different areas of Plitvice.
I would recommend bringing your own lunch too because this is a national park after all and while there is a few cafés I probably wouldn’t bank on getting a great feed at them.
As I was here in July it was prime tourist season and at some points in the walks unfortunately it was almost a standstill while people blocked the paths trying to take photos. It was such a shame!
Otherwise, the day I spent here was perfect and away from the crowds it was a peaceful natural reserve.
Here’s a few of my favourite snaps!
Prices for entry start from the equivalent of 10 AUD (or about 7 EUR) but during peak summer season can go up to 33 AUD (or 23 EUR). The currency in Croatia is the Kuna currently.
