The stunning Plitvice Lakes National Park lies in the Lika region of Croatia. The park is surrounded by the mountains Plješevica, Mala Kapela, and Medveđak, which are part of the Dinaric Alps. The 16 blue-green Plitvice Lakes, which are separated by natural dams of travertine, are situated on the Plitvice plateau. Waterfalls connect the lakes, and the tallest waterfall is Veliki Slap at 70 meters (230 feet) tall. The Plitvice lakes area boasts a large variety of interesting and colorful flora and fauna. Visitors can enjoy walking and hiking the many pathways and trails, or exploring the lakes by boat. The park itself has 3 hotels and a campsite, otherwise visitors can find accommodation at any of the number of villages and cities nearby.

  3. cccc…combo breaker

  4. awesome!!
    i wanna go there!!

  5. croatia isnt that far
    haha

  6. I just “Stumbled” to your site. What a joy, i actually visited these Lakes over 30 years ago…when it was still communist Yugoslavia. It was a majestic experience that I have not thought about in years.

    Thanks you so much for bringing back wonderful memories!

  7. it’s amazing. it’s on earth. wish I could be there someday.

  8. These are truly amazing pictures. Indeed nature has given us lots to savour and be proud about. Let’s keep this world green.

  9. The real question is……….can you swim in it?

  10. Nice place, shame about the Croatians. Fascist bastards.

  11. have been there:))) really amazing!

  12. In nature it is even more beautiful…

    @Guy
    No , it is forbiten. They keep it clean and out of people hands. That is why yoz can see fishes and other-watter-stuffs in huge number too.
    @Mitsonen
    You should be ashamed. Croatia and other Balkan countries have many good sights to visit, but they don t use aggressive marketing to atract tourists, which is good part :)

  13. Yes, indeed, nature as a fairy tale. I looked at the pictures and publish as if they had just arrived there from yesterday. I advise everyone to visit, there kakayato magic in this place

  14. i have never seen waterfalls before

  15. Its incredible, best place ever, I will go takes what it takes.

  16. @mark
    You obviously know nothing about photography, they used a slower shutter speed.

  17. Really, that’s the most wonderful place have ever seen! I love it, that’s real heaven!

  18. it’s very very beautiful,i want to live there for ever if i can.

  19. Ms. Smartee Phants

    That’s not in Croatia, that’s Middle Earth.

  20. That’s middle earth!

  21. A love a girl from there. Stunning places, special people.

  22. I think I see Neytiri!

  23. I’ve been there while on a motorbiking trip. It’s really unbelievable once you’re there. You can walk around the park for a whole day and not see the same thing twice.

  24. Lovely pictures

  25. The Plitvice Lakes incident of March 1991 (known in Croatian as “Plitvice Bloody Easter”) was an incident at the beginning of the Croatian War of Independence. It was a clash between heavily armed Croatian policemen and special police (the Croatian army was still being formed and organized at that time), the forces aiming to create the independent Republic of Croatia, and lightly armed Serbs, supported by Belgrade and the Yugoslav People’s Army. A 22 year old Josip Jović from Aržani, Croatia, the first victim of the Homeland War, was killed in an action against Serbian terrorists on Plitvice. Today, it’s a symbol of the Croatian fight for freedom and homeland and contains a memorial of the first Croatian man to fall in a battle for his homeland in the war.

  26. Amazing Place…

  27. Nature is wonderful. Freedom to green. Go Green !!!

  28. I saw a documentary a couple of years ago it is really an awesome place.

  29. This is indeed one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and this si coming from someone who routinely watches the Planet Earth Blu Ray. Would be epic if we could get wallpapers of these pictures especially the first one.

  30. of course its photoshoped mark… you think the film photographer of days gone by just poped on down to the wallmart and dropped his film off thinking “hm, we’ll see what happens”… no.

    They spent hours toiling away in a dark room, trying to get the print just the way they wanted… the process today has simply been digitized, the personal computer is the digital dark room.. welcome to the 21st century

  31. Beautiful photography.

  32. I must visit there someday. 10+ years ago i had an offer to work in Croatia, but it was too soon after the war so I went to the Czech Republic.

  33. awesome, ill go there after i go to RORAIMA! you should all check it out greatest place on earth!

  34. that is so beautiful. i would love to visit and take some pictures. i would also want to swim in it :] thanks for showing these lovely pictures of art.

  35. Beautiful!!!

  36. For all you swimmers you should visit another croatian national park, google for “waterfalls of krka” it’s not far away from plitvice lakes. :)

    Pozdrav svima ;)

  37. Absolutely beautiful! I want to go there sometime.

  38. Lol… people are so dumb… Photoshop meme win.

  39. Wow! This is sooooo cool, i love it!! =)
    I’m an awesome person and so is my best friend

  40. I live in Croatia,and I have to say,I’ve been there couple of times and it is absolutely fantastic,and for all of you who think that it’s photoshoped you don’t know what you are saying,everything looks a bit different on a photo,so don’t judge but come and see for yourself.
    Big kiss from Cro :))))

  41. Incredible gift! Thanks to whomever sent it in! Peace-R

  42. awesome photographs! and very nice place, how I wish I could get there some time. great site to take pictures!

  43. I’m going to Croatia for my hols this year, will have to add this to my sightseeing plans……

  44. Really beautiful places. Should become everyone’s goal to go there…

  51. i have been here, i stop into croatia before driving into bosnia ever summer i go visit my family in bosnia! i always take a day or two to stop here!!
    a must see!!
    its even more beautiful then the pictures!!

  52. The pictures don’t do this place justice. I went there in 1987, following my parents, and had no idea what it was. I’ve traveled a lot and this is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

  53. It must be ball busting cold water if no one is swimming in those awesome pools.

  54. Lovely! I did travel to Croatia many years ago, but never went to that park… great shots!

  66. WOW, what a stunning place and amazing photos!

  67. what an amazing place i ever see…

  68. I didn’t know Croatia had this much beauty

  69. Wow. Really Beautiful Scenery. Love to be there.

  70. AMAZING!!!…..that man can create so much evil, in such a beautiful place!?

  71. the terrorists dont know about this place?

  72. These places look so peaceful and serene. Waterfalls are natures stress reducers.

  73. Hrvatska! It is so beautiful. The entire country is really just a stunning experience. Great people, food, sights and culture.

  74. samo neznalica ili pravi fasist poput tebe moze reci da su hrvati fasisti.

  75. Toronto Photographer

    The waterfalls are the soul of the planet.

  76. This is so beautiful! Are you able to swim in the pools? Why is it people don’t appreciate the world’s beauty enough?

  77. It takes a long time to Croatian people to unmine this place from bombs that Serbians put there during the war.

    And no :D :D :D the water isn’t cold, it is perfect to swim, but it’s forbid, and that way is better. As Saff said, you can go swim in “Krka”, where is really beautiful too.

    Pozdrav!

  95. Amazing photographs. Would love to visit these places someday.

  96. I’d love to live near there, be able to wander over for a picnic and a quick swim in the summer time. If it’s closed to these activities, that’s understandable, but unfortunate at the same time. Still, a girl can dream…

  97. Really wonderfull place, i really want to visit all these place.

  98. Amazing photos that make me want to relax on the shores of an alpine lake.

  99. Been there, it is as marvellous as in the pictures! Croatia has many beautiful spots, but this is one of it’s greatest wonders.

  100. Heaps of leaps of beauty. Yet another must see place. Super stunning.

  101. I was on Plitvice lakes this winter. The waterfalls were frozen just like on the picture. Actually, I was on photomaraton. Many photographers find Plitvice inspiring, so you must admit that there is no Photoshop who can create this beauty !
    That week I was feeling like a snow queen. So beautiful nature, woods, snow, delicious food and fascinating legends about lakes. Local people are so kind and there is some ski center too.
    So perfect and so close to coast. You must visit this country. Croatia is full of surprises !!

  102. cool, stumbled upon this and i’ve been there 2 years ago in the summer :D The water is so clear! And the hotel nearby is also a old communist era building, which stands in quite a nice contrast with the rest of the area oh and it has a good restaurant. Go when you have the chance!

  103. Please…..NO BODY try to DESTROY this AMAZING NATURE !
    then only we can feel those more further.TRY to PROTECT our NATURE…

  104. Hey, i like there, i think i can go there for a holiday. I hope there will stay as in the photos till i will go.

  105. These places really seems very beautiful.

  107. eh, I’ve seen better. I mean come on , it’s not like any of you have never seen flowing water or trees before. I bet everyone jumps up and down at a park when it starts to rain……. and then you take a hundred pictures , make a blog and spend a good time of your life telling everyone how amazing that experience was. to answer those who may be wondering, YES! I have nothing better to do but write a completely pointless comment for these awesome pictures.

  108. I’ve been there. It’s one of the best places on earth!!!

    • There are four seasons here in Croatia, and the Plitivice lakes are beautiful in each season. But the best time to visit is May – July. As for accommodation,let me know if you need any help.

      • I would love t visit the lakes in July this year. where is best to stay and what is the best way to get there? Which airport should i fly to?

    • I traveled here in May. It was the most beautiful place I have ever seen. I didn’t even know it was possible for a place like this to exist. Get there early and start (when you’re looking at the map) on the trails on the left side, I believe it’s the second entrance. The tourists begin on the right and it can get very crowded as the day carries on. I took a 2 hour bus ride from Zagreb. But I suggest May, my friends have gone other times, like a month later or two later, and things didn’t seem as green, I don’t know why. But, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect time. If you go, have a wonderful time!

    • I am from Plitvice lakes National park and the best time to visit them is spring…april, may…Summer months are way to crowded, 10000 visitors per day and it’s really hard to walk these wooden bridges (trails)…You have to wait for the boat, you have to wait for panoramic bus….But, even that is no problem if you’re willing to walk around all of 16 lakes on foot, and btw, that’s the best way to experience them.You can book hotels,private accomodation etc…if you ever decide to come,let me know and I’ll find you proper accomodation- Best wishes!

      • Hi would like to visit in May and would like to know about accommodation please, what are the hotels called?

      • Hey me and three other friends are lookin to visit in mid August. We’re backpacking across Europe and this is where we want to end on! We want to camp if thats possible so if you have any reccomendations that would be great! also, what airport would be the closest to leave from to get home to Ireland? Thanks a bunch!

      • I will visit the park at the end of the month and I would like to know which trail (sightseeing program) do you recommend me to do

        Thanks!

      • Hi I am planning a trip to lake plitvice in July. I saw your note about help with planning and hotels – I am just starting my research. can you recommend an itenerary and hotels please.

  242. looks so beautiful! now I’m really disappointed that I missed it when I was in Croatia!

  243. Great pics. The winter photos gives the place a whole new dimension!

  244. i saw this on a nature film i think. the treavertine is there because it is one of the most alkaline water systems in the world, if a stick falls in it gets coated with 1 cm of rock in year, so it has very special fauna and flora, the nature film was mostly subaquatic footage.

  245. Wow gorgeous pictures! Really makes me want to go there ASAP! All this time I’ve spent here I’m Cro and I’ve still never been, will definitely be planning a trip soon!

  246. I thought the lakes in Jiuzhaigou Valley, China, were unique until I stumbled-upon these pictures.

  268. that is the beauty of nature. It will be hard not to love it to death!

  269. We love the pictures and waterfalls. Is anyone allowed to swim in the lakes and go under some of the waterfalls. Where are the best hotels or villages to stay in and what airport is the best one to fly to? Would it be best to hire a car or is the public transport good? Whats the weather temps like around May – June and whats the night life like in the area? Sorry for all the questions but we would really love to go here.

  270. Oh wow. That is just beautiful! The picture of that lake is one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen. Beautiful!

  353. Croatias also known as national park very nice attraction to visit PLITVICE LAKE. The chain of lakes are connected by small waterfalls and are very beautiful. To see most of the lake system requires much up and down walking on stair steps and paths, however. This attraction will be very crowded in some places, but is large and the crowd will eventually spread out on the trails . Well worth seeing.. :)

  354. Thank you so much for reminding me I need to visit this magical place. Croatia is stunning
