Plitvicka Jezera National Park Travel Guide: 380 reviews and 1,127 photos

The park is loacted in central Croatia, not far from the Bosnia & Herscovina border on the highway south of Karlovac. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful, of many, spots in Croatia. This is the first sighting you get of the waterfalls as you come over the rise from the entrance and into the gorge where the series of waterfalls and lakes are.

The trails at Plitvicka National Park are clearly marked as you can see on the sign there behind Tal. In the background you can see one of the larger lakes, and YES, the color is what you see.

The trails wend along between, over and under and alongside small and larger waterfalls, with some of them close enough to touch. One important thing though is that NO swimming is allowed to preserve the perfect beauty of this jem.
