  • Plitch's lakes are exhilarating; The most beautiful and wonderful corner of the National Park is the Lower Lakes. Lower lakes are called so not for red words. They are lower than other water bodies in the national park. It is surrounded by magnificent mountains and forests. The mountains are beautifully reflected in the water, it's a pleasure to photograph them. But life does not consist of pleasures alone: those who descend on the surface of the water must inevitably ascend. On my own, I know how hard it is to gather to climb when it breaks down from the surrounding nature and the gentle sun. You should be prepared for this test.

  • It took about three hours by bus from Zagreb to Plitvice Lake County Park. Divided on top and bottom. There is a big boat out there, so you can go back and forth for free.
