Waterfall Nature / Park
Shut your eyes, step close to the waterfall, and enjoy water misting across your face at Veliki Slap. Where the Lower Lakes end, the Plitvica River falls and becomes river Korana. Watch the water tumble for 78 m (256 ft). Cimb the stairs from the base of the waterfall to the top. Pause on the way and take in a view of the lake below. More views await you at the overlook perched near the edge of the gorge. Be careful on the slippery path, especially if you have a fear of heights.

  • This concerns the largest waterfall of the park that is to be found in lower part of the park and accessible via ramps. Like the rest of the park is also this very well indicate with plates and you can't miss it. The waterfall is high and consists of multiple streams. Nice to see and enjoy it. Sometimes you get even a little fresh water spray if you're in the neighborhood. I thought it was not the most beautiful part of the Plitvice Lakes.

  • You must see it. Wonderful!!!!Think about timing, it is better to visit it in the morning. In the afternoon it is mostly crowded.  more »
  • The highest waterfall in the park is crowded. It is a beautiful waterfall, but personally we found him not the most beautiful! At the upper lakes are more to see waterfalls that magically through the forest flows and lead to wondrous images.
