Cascades, Plitvice Lakes National Park

Inspirock Rating:
4.9/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • Wear good walk shoes, walkways are difficult to maneuver on. No guardrails so don't bring too much in case you fall in.. 
  • Amazing Park with several waterfalls connected. Worth the trip, be sure to go when visiting Croatia.

  • 4 or 5 cascades "interesting", relatively beautiful (especially the largest, 40 m high), but no more.
