      Hi all,

      Just wanted to double check if Plitvicka park is closed for tourists on any day of the week. I am most likely planning to visit on Sep 10th which is a Wednesday.

    • Are hiking boots necessary?

      by deeryk Online Now May 29, 2014 at 10:39 AM

      I'm trying to pack light for a 10 day trip to Croatia, which will cover a range of environments (beach/city/ parks). A trip to Plitvicka Jazera is high on the list and I'm wondering if it's worth it to bring my heavy hiking boots, or if I can get by with good walking shoes or runners. Will I be limited in park activities if I skip the heavy boots?

      Recommendations of Places to Stay with a Baby

      by giampiero6 Online Now May 26, 2014 at 11:45 AM

      Hello Friends. As some of you may know, I have a 5 month old baby girl who is becoming quite the intrepid traveler. In late June, we will be visiting some friends and traveling by car to Plitvice where we will stay for a night or two. Can someone recommend a good place to stay that will be relatively convenient with a little baby? I'm an avid hiker, but with the baby we'll be less ambitious.

      Thanks a million in advance!

      Trail/Entrance assistance - Plitvicka

      by scuyler Online Now May 25, 2014 at 11:30 AM

      Would greatly appreciate any thoughts you have on this. We will be staying for one night, one day in the Plitvica Selo area so we'll be very close to Entrance #3. One of our group is a mobile 80 year old. While my initial thought was to do the shortest trail, A, does it make sense to start out (we'll have a car) at Entrance 3 and then move the car to one of the other entrances? I don't think she will do well with any steep trails (either going up or down). Thanks in advance.

    • Best top view of the lakes and routes?

      by Jewel123 Online Now May 20, 2014 at 11:41 PM


      Please can you advise if there are any walking routes within the park that provide the best top views of the lakes as we see in most googled pics of PLITVICE(of the cascade falls). The routes that i have seen on the park website shows only the routes at the same level.

      Also since we are arriving at around mid day into the park in July can you please advise which entrance is best to use keeping the heat in mind so that we get the shady route for the afternoon and can walk in the open in the evening. We will be halting in Plitvice for the night, so we have 6-7 hours to cover the park. We are energetic and dont mind the uphill treks but its more practical i guess to walk uphill when its cooler in the day.

      Please advise.

    • Are Plitvice Lakes flooded?

      by SunnySydney Online Now May 18, 2014 at 8:39 AM

      Hello again,

      We were planning on visiting the Plitvice Lakes on a drive down from Zagreb on the way to Split on the 20th of May. I have seem some recent photos that shows the park quite flooded? Is this the case? Is it not worth visiting? Also will floods effect any where else on our drive from Zagreb - Plitvice - Split - Dubrovnik? I've heard it's flooding and people are being evacuated on the eastern side of croatia but can't find much information?

      Thanks very much!

      Bus from Pula and campsites/cheap accommodation in Plitvicka NP

      by zr1610 Online Now May 16, 2014 at 8:42 AM

      Hi all,

      I did a little research on my own and found that the bus route from Pula to Plitvicka is as follows:
      Pula-Rijeka-Karlova-Plitvička Jezera, which requires a few bus transfers.

      May I know if there is now a direct bus service from Pula to Plitvicka Jezera?

      Also, as I am still a student, I really wish to save as much as possible on accommodation. Is there any camping grounds nearby that provide tents or cabins for rental? Or any recommendation on cheap B&Bs would be greatly appreciated too.

      A big thank you in advance!

      I'm going to zagreb in 16 of july, for a 2 night sleep. I come at 11:30 in the morning. I want to go to plitvicka the next day I come... I understood that I need to buy the bus ticket at the central station... I want to take the earlier bus at 7:30 and go back at the last bus (17:50?). Will it be ok if I buy the bus ticket when I arrive (a day before I want to go there) or is it possible there won't be a seat on the earlier bus because it's the middle of July? Should I buy a train tickets in advance? if so, where can I order it? thanks for any help!

    • bus from Plitvice to Zadar

      by mandy2111 Online Now Jul 1, 2013 at 3:12 AM

      Hi, I will be travelling on my own from Australia to Croatia so would like to ensure I have the correct bus timetables. I fly into Zagreb on 17th August and plan to get the late afternoon bus to plitvicka jezera on the 19th and stay the night at the Bellevue Hotel. On the 20th Aug I will spend the day in the park and would like to get the bus to Zadar in the late afternoon/early evening. Can you please let me know if the 17.23 bus will be running on this day and if I can rely on the bus for my transport to Zadar.

      M alternative is to spend a 2nd night there and then get the morning bus to Split - which means missing Zadar - any recommendations???

      Many thanks

      Zagreb - Plitvice - Split by Bus

      by rbdoshi Online Now May 12, 2013 at 1:03 AM


      There are several comments on the subject but I am still confused so troubling you all once again. Wanted to make a pit stop at Plitvice on my way from Zagreb to Split by bus.

      1. Is it advisable or do I run the risk of not finding bus from plitvice for Split?
      2. Will the bus drop me all the way to Plitvice? If not, how do I reach from where bus drops me?
      3. Which entrance should I use? (I believe there are 2 entrances)
      4. Is there any provision to keep my luggage safely while roaming in the park?

      Any other advice or thing I should consider? I would be traveling there in September.

      Thanks in advance!!

    • Bus or Car???

      by drabs Online Now Aug 9, 2012 at 12:12 PM

      Hi Everyone,

      I'm planning a trip to Croatia for mid September. I plan on travelling from Split to Plitvice and then on to Zagreb, although if anyone thinks its better to do it the other way around, let me know!

      I was wondering what the best way of travelling round might be. I think it would be good to rent a car (more freedom) but as far as I can see this is alot more expensive than catching buses.

      I'd love to hear your ideas and any experiences you've had with this sort of trip.

    • Best option to get from Plitvice to Belgrade without a car?

      by piwas Online Now Jul 25, 2012 at 3:09 AM

      I will have plane departure from Belgrade at 07:00 in the morning 17.08. and interested in spending as much time as possible at Plitvice on 16.08. So which would be the best transport option for me?
      I found just one direct bus from Zadar but it have too early departure from Plitvice at 10:00. Evening train from Zagreb seems don't give as much Plitvice time to win as money to spend. Night bus from Zagreb turns better but it arrived to Belgrade at 04:00 that looks too risky of missing the plane in case of possible delay...
      Any other options?

      Getting to the Park from the town

      by mayasmin Online Now May 28, 2012 at 7:17 PM

      Unfortunately, all the 4 hotels near the Plitvice Lake Park are full for the days that we are hoping to visit. If we decide to stay in one of the guest houses in the town of Plitvicka Jezera (not necessarily by the park), how do you get to the park from the town without a car? Or is a car necessary? We were hoping to travel from Zagreb, stay a couple of nights in Plitvice, then proceed to Split, all via buses, but is it better to just do Plitvice as a day trip from Zagreb, stay in Zagreb, and travel to Split from Zagreb? We really are hoping not to rent a car.

      I will be visiting Croatia in December (dont ask me why I come in December ....LOL...). My questions :
      1. Anyone done these routes by bus recently, plz tell me the fare: Split - Plitvice Lake; Plitvice Lake - Zagreb; Zagreb - Vienna. I hv checked this website but can only find timetables, not the fare.
      2. Any preferance seating on the bus, right side or left side for better views?
      3. The Plitvice Lake National Park official website said that only entrance 1 open from November till March. So, if I take this local bus, will this bus pass or can I get down at entrance 1?
      4. I have surfed the accomodations at Plitvice Lake and seems that most of them are situated near entrance 2 or Mukinje. The only one that is close enough to entrance 1 is B & B Krizmanic, which is too expensive for me and it's fully booked at the time of my arrival. Another option is staying at Zafran GH, but this place is 6kms away fr entrance 1. Since I'm coming by bus and I'm having my heavy backpack with me, I dont think I can walk that far. Can anyone reccomend me if there is any other accomodation nearer to entrance 1 (which may not advertised in the internet) and not too expensive....or if I can continue to Zagreb by night bus...Advices plz....
