The many waterfalls of Plitvice National Park, Croatia
I’ve never seen so many waterfalls in one day. At a modest estimate I’d say 40.
Founded in 1949 and added to the UNESCO World Heritage register in ‘79, Plitvice National Park is certainly the jewel of northern Croatia.
We stayed for 2 days, hiked all the trails and found waterfalls and emerald lakes around just about every corner.
Kudos to the park’s planning team - all the wooden walk ways are sympathetic & complimentary to the natural beauty of the park.
They get more than 1 million visitors per year so it's best to get to one of the two entrances soon after it opens at 7am to avoid the crowds...and be prepared for very few food options.
There’s one big restaurant outside entrance one (we ate there 3 times) and limited fast food in a couple of places within the park itself. There are inexpensive buses that will get you to and from the park, but easiest way is with hire car.
