Plitvice lakes is the most beautiful and the oldest national park in Croatia and under UNESCO protection. It consists of 16 lakes connected via waterfalls. The park is visited mostly on foot, however the entrance includes a boat ride across the Emerald Green Lake “Kozjak” and a train ride back to the main entrance.
Why are the Plitvice lakes so popular? Nature is the best showman and never disappoint the viewer. No matter how many times we’ve seen the lakes, there is always something different and new. The changing seasons, the rising and falling water levels, color of light in different time of the day. A refreshing place to be, at anytime of day and during any season.
The national park is world famous for its lakes arranged in cascades. Currently, 16 lakes can be seen from the surface. The lakes are renowned for their distinctive colours, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue. The colours change constantly depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of sunlight. The park has been under UNESCO protection since 1979.
A tour of the lakes easily takes all day, if you feel like walking all the trails. You can speed up your visit by using shortcuts run by boats across the major lakes. But take your time, sit by the waterfalls and get your face wet. When hungry, you can visit the Lička kuća restaurant for some local delicacies. When tired, make your stops short, before the daylight hides behind the surrounding tall hills.
All levels of photography experience are welcome. Bring comfortable shoes for walking and moderate trails. Your camera bag, tripod and any other equipment should not be too heavy or large. Avoid rolling photo bags, use smaller backpacks. Polarizing and ND filters, macro lenses are also recommended, but not necessary. Don’t bring a bathing suit, swimming is prohibited in Plitvice lakes!
