Cascades, Plitvice Lakes National Park

(4.9/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
A highlight of Plitivice National Park, the dramatic waters of Cascades tumble from one lake to the next in a series of 16. The travertine-encrusted vegetation between the lakes forms unique barriers that give the falls a particularly lush, dramatic appearance. The vibrant colors of the water shift from lake to lake, ranging from azure to turquoise, and the transparent shallows are perfect for observing schools of freshwater fish. Detailed, well-maintined walking paths let you choose your route, and include boat rides and shuttle buses over certain portions. Keep in mind that crowds are at their heaviest from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. Put Cascades on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Plitvice Lakes National Park trip generator.

  • We visited in August and the cascades weren't in their full strength. The level of waters pouring down wasn't at its highest but still amazing to see. A must see. 
  • Superb waterfalls. Would be a shame to miss these. . If one goes through the Park you will only realize how beautiful was part of this miracle of nature.

  • Main purpose of visit Plitvice is definitely a visit to the famous waterfalls. This natural park is bechermd by UNESCO as world heritage.
