Plitvicka Jezera National Park Warnings and Dangers: 15 reviews and 25 photos
Please note that from 2005 there are two possible roads between Zagreb and the coast. If you are using some older guidebook you might get confused when you read that Plitvice are halfway from Zagreb and the coast.
D1 road is the old road, 2-lane only, going from Karlovac via Plitvice and Knin to Split.
A1 road is a new highway that runs on a big loop around Plitvice and does NOT pass nearby. If you wish to visit Plitvice then get off from the highway in Karlovac and take the old D1 road. (Btw. D1 is quite a good road, so no need to be worried about this "old" thing).
Another warning concernes trains. If you examine the list of stations between Zagreb and Split you will notice a station named Vrhovine-Plitvicka jezera. Please note that this is VERY FAR from the entrance to the park and that there is NO ORGANIZED TRANSPORT! So, you don't want to take a Zagreb - Split train and end up in the middle of nowhere! (Luckily, ICN trains don't even stop here).
If you are on the public transport, then take the bus BUT MAKE SURE IT TAKES THE D1 ROAD - buses running along the A1 are of no use.
