Cascades, Plitvice Lakes National Park
(4.9/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • Extremely beautiful waterfalls/cascades which are a treat to watch. The colors are amazing and these lakes are definitely one of the most pristine and well-preserved spots of nature. 
  • Beautiful, unique experience, worth to spend the day! The lakes have an unbelievable emerald green color and so clear you can see the bottom. 
  • A day of 8 hours visit this magnificent park. We have eyes. Don't forget the camera. Better to have fewer people on the course take the shuttle bus which put us at the top of the Park and start the tour from the top down. The opposite of what made the fstds isiteurs majority, so there fewer people at strategic locations. Do not hesitate to leave the paths marked out when access is not prohibited. We make discoveries on stunts that are not in the classic course.
