Tips for Visiting Plitvice Lakes in Croatia
How much time should I spend there?
The real question is, “how much time do you want to spend in paradise?” The hours fly by quickly when the birds are chirping and the water is flowing around you. The National Park is open all year round and access is available from 7am to 8pm daily. Complete operating hours and prices can be found here.
You can spend an entire day in the beauty of nature here. There are plenty of hiking trails as well as boardwalks that go over the lakes and waterways.
Walking across these will take your breath away as you glance down and see all the way to the bottom through the clear azure water.
Remember that swimming isn’t allowed at these lakes due to its UNESCO World Heritage listing. But that doesn’t mean that you won’t have an amazing day here. For another epic destination in Croatia where you can swim, check out Krka National Park!
Pack a picnic lunch, bring some music or a book to read, and set up camp for the day in your little patch of perfection in Croatia.
