Quick stop at Plitvice Lakes

Picked up a rental car Friday afternoon so we could leave Zagreb early. We stopped on our way to Zadar to see Plitvice National Park. This massive forest preserve is located in Central Croatia and has 16 lakes, tons of waterfalls and more tourists than you can shake a stick at.  Actually considering how many people there are, they do an amazing job of traffic flow. The shortest route is 3 hours and that is hiking for a good 7 kilometers and then taking the shuttle bus back to the parking lot. Trails are easy. I actually think the most strenuous part of the hike was the hill back to the entrance. Autumn is a great time to see the lakes as the pictures I have posted will attest to. Definitely a must see when you are in Croatia.

  1. Omg the pictures are amazing. Peter and I were there in the summer and I hiked to the top of the hill twice. I couldn’t walk after since my legs felt like gelatin. Thank you for the pictures. Fall colors are much better than summer.

    1. I do think the fall colors add a dimension you won’t see any other time of the year. Our legs felt pretty messed up too!
