  • We only did the lower half of the lakes, but it was amazing. The water was unbelievable clear and the falls were beautiful. I would recommend going in the spring or fall, because I understand that the...  read more »
  • It was a nice warm, bright sunny day in October. The lakes and waterfalls were awesome. The walkways were split chestnut timber without guard rails, not for the non-surefooted to walk on. Some pushy t...  read more »
  • Most beautiful natural phenomenon I've ever seen. But go when it's warm. If it hadn't been cold (mid-October) I could have stayed there all day just staring at the crystal clear water coursing by all ...  read more »
  • Absolutely breathtaking. This was so nice to be able to walk for hours and have some sort of beautiful land feature in sight. It is worth everything you pay. Including parking. The ticket purchase for the park gives access to the boats and busses in the Park which i noticed a lot of people didn't know.
  • Such a fantastic park. It is unfathomable how many waterfalls there are everywhere! If you like waterfalls you have to come here. We walked around for hours, there are a few different length paths you can take and the ticket includes a couple nice little boat rides.
  • Astonishing Amazing Truly A world Heritage Site. A must do when in the area. Even worth a trip to Croatia just to experience this Natural Wonder.Would recommend visiting the place out of the the main season.Try getting there no later than 31/5 and no earlier than 1/9 as the place, although huge can get crowded .Do not hesitate to take the walk even with slight rains. Get a Poncho ( you can buy one in the local store).Plan a full day. Do the whole 6 hours walk. you will not regret it.There is an (electric) bus to take you back to entrance 1 from the far end of the park .Satisfaction guaranteed.Bring enough memory cards fro your camera!
  • Very beautiful lakes and waterfalls. No regrets for spending the full day here! We tracked 15 km walking. Bring walking shoes 😎
  • One of the most unsuspectedly naturally beautiful places you're likely to find anywhere in an understated way. The colour of the water and the way that fallen logs have been petrified by the calcium rich waters are amazing.
