"Beware Weather - Park Closed in Snow" Moving around Tip by haysnoe
Moving around, Plitvicka Jezera National Park: 6 reviews and 14 photos
Favorite thing: My Plitvicka story is sad. We figured a couple extra days into our Europe trip to Slovenia and Italy trip to visit the park.
We arrived on March 21, 2005 and were somewhat alramed about all of the snow on the ground, but not at all concerened. That was until we found out that virtually all of the park was closed as a result. For months before our trip I had read everything about the park and it was to be a major highlight of our entire vacation. All guides we read said that the park was an all-season, all-weather destination. Due to the snow, however, we were relegated to only the one major waterfall near the visitor center and a short section of the walking path from the visitor center to one of the hotels above the string of lakes below. We were incredibly disappointed. Not with the park, of course, but with the fact that we had made many sacrifices to get there and could not fully enjoy the experience.
Trust me, what we saw was spectacular but was only a couple of hours worth and we were hoping to spend two full days hiking and boating.
Point is, make sure when you go that there isn't any snow. Hey, that rhymes!
