Enjoy the vibrant colors, crystal clear waters, and waterfalls of The Lower Lakes in Plitvice National Park. The transparent aquamarine lakes are filled to the brim with freshwater fish, and tumble into each other in a series of picturesque falls. Explore the gorge that extends into the river Korana, ducking into the numerous caves along the way. A network of well-maintained walking paths lets you choose your route, with different lengths and challenge levels. Many of the trails involve a boat ride along the way, included in the admission fee. Keep in mind that the attraction can get quite crowded between mid-morning and mid-afternoon.
