Travel Tips for visiting Plitvice Lakes National Park

Plitvice Lakes National Park is the most ancient and biggest national park in Croatia. It is situated in the Gorska Hrvatska region (between Mala Kapela mountain and Lička Plješivica). Administratively, it is divided between Lika-Senj County (90.7%) and Karlovac County (9.3%). The exceptionally beautiful Plitvice Lakes region has always attracted nature lovers. The Plitvice Lakes National Park was established on April 8, 1949 and is the first national park in Croatia. The process of travertine sedimentation, formation of travertine barriers and creation of lakes is of exceptional universal value, which is why Plitvice Lakes received international recognition on October 26, 1979, when they were included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. In 1997, the area of the Plitvice Lakes National Park was expanded so that it now covers a total area of almost 300 km2. Most of the park is covered by forest vegetation and, to a lesser extent, by grass, while the lakes themselves, which are the most interesting and attractive part of the park, occupy barely 1% of its area. The lake system consists of 16 large named lakes and a few small unnamed lakes, connected to each other and cascading down. Due to their particular geology and hydrogeological conditions, the lake system is split into two groups, Gornja jezera ("upper lakes") and Donja jezera ("lower lakes"). The upper lakes, which are formed on watertight layers of dolomite, are twelve in number: Prošćansko jezero, Ciginovac, Okrugljak, Batinovac, Veliko jezero, Malo jezero, Vir, Galovac, Milino jezero, Gradinsko jezero, Burgeti and Kozjak. They are more spacious, more jagged and with gentler slopes than the lower lakes. The lower lakes, Milanovac, Gavanovac, Kaluđerovac and Novakovića Brod, lie on porous limestone layers and run through a narrow canyon with steep slopes. The lakes end with the impressive Sastavci waterfall, at the foot of which the Korana River originates. The Plitvice Lakes National Park proposes seven programs for visitors to visit the network of lakes, four hiking routes, and is open to visitors all year round. All visitors must follow the instructions on the information boards, follow the marked trails without leaving any traces of their passage in the form of waste, marking or devastation of nature in any form.
