  • This is outside of town and its pretty to look at . If you are going to canoe or row while you are there then ok... but if not.. no need to drive out.. too much in town to see. 
  • On my visit to Croatia, a train was very late arriving to Zagreb, and stayed with the desire to visit the Plitvice Park, but the receptionist at our hotel told us that we could spend the afternoon in this Lake. The truth is that there are many bars and places to eat around, and the water is bad. But it is not a paradise not far. It is like going to any swimming pool in the open air, but it is a lake.
