Witness the beauty

of Croatia and the Plitvice Lakes

With a surface area of 294.82 square kilometers, Plitvice Lakes National Park is the largest of Croatia’s eight National parks. Plitvice Lakes were declared as a national park in 1949, making it the first and oldest National Park in Croatia. In 1979, Plitvice Lakes were included in the UNESCO list of World Natural Heritage sites.
Having a unique set of lakes, cascades, waterfalls, ancient forests and biodiversity the Plitvice Lakes offer you a relaxing walk through the magical palette of colors, from azure blue to turquoise green.

The park can be visited through the whole year, and each part of the year gives the lakes a new guise which offers a unique experience. One of the first researchers of the natural phenomenon was Academic Ivo Pevalek who in 1937. said: “There are water, lakes, waterfalls and forests elsewhere, but Plitvice Lakes are unique.

They simply must be seen!”

Besides the park you can visit the mysterious Barać Caves to experience the atmosphere underneath the earth and witness its beauty with all the halls and unique structures inside.

Or you can visit nearby Town of Slunj, and amazing Rastoke – The Millers village made on waterfalls.
There are no words which could describe the beauty and harmony of this area, therefore visit us, experience and be a part of this pristine and intact nature.
