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.

  • Beautiful landscapes but so highly recommend him a little patience (code on code) and a good map (risks to walk 8 hours and feeling trapped in the Park between the falls) maps are unclear However delightful scenery. to visit for strength

  • 國家公園很大,很多路線可以選擇,看你怎麼安排。這段是最為壯觀的。走了超過半天,看了無數的湖和瀑布後,真的會感覺到麻痺。但是這裡做結束是一個不錯的選擇,因為這個地方有遊園車可以載妳回到入口,而且,有個小山丘讓你登高,從高處望向瀑布和湖景,那種感動和在平地走勢截然不然的。 
  • Great location, beautiful views. Place. Waterfalls of brilliant. Recommend necessarily is a must see.
