Hi every one!
I'm planning to visit the Plitvice Lakes on July, we will depart from Zagreb at 8h40, visit the park and then we want to go to Split in the end of the day. If anyone can help me with some doubts:
1. There are a place to drop off our luggage? In the both entrances or just in one of them? And, it has a cost?
2. I found a bus ride from the lakes to Split that departs at 18h and arrives there at 21h30 for 22€, but I saw many comments on trips that take 5 hours and only departs earlier in the afternoon (14-16h) and other comments saying that if we go to the bus station and wait, we can just pick up one of the busses that are passing in the direction to Split and take one of them (someone said that he picked up the bus to Albania!) that is cheaper and faster. Anyone with information about this?
3. Other option is go by car from Zagreb, because it can worth the money. In the Lakes, there are car parking, it's for free? What do you think about this option?
Thank you in advance!
I am trying to work out which area to stay overnight near the Plitvice Lakes National Park area. We will be arriving by bus from Zagreb and departing by bus to Split. Most forums I have read indicate that Entrance no 1 is where the buses will stop though I am not sure about this. We will have limited time and want to make the most of our stay. Some accommodation places have indicated they can pick up and drop off to the bus area.
Question - Is there much distance between the two entrances - I like walking but not with suitcases in tow.
Can anyone advise if the buses arrive/ depart closer to which entrance.
Also, is there much in the way of dinner options as this may make a difference to where we stay.
Thanks in advance. Leigh
Is it possible for a person with a bad leg to visit. I´m thinking can you take the shuttlebus to the upper lakes and have a little walk to experience the nature and then take it down to the lower lakes for a short walk also? Or will it be waste of time if we can´t really hike on the trails but just take a little walk and enjoy the sight and nature?
We'll be travelling from Novi Vinodolski to the Plitvice National Park. Which is the best location for accommodation?
Please advise best entrance to get to the middle lake, boat ride etc.
We have a full day to explore.
We had a return flight to Zagreb and want to go to Plitvicka Park and stay there and go back to Zagreb airport from there.
What is the suitable location near bus station.As we have baggages ,it 's important stay in a place close to the bus station.I search places close to entrance 1 (Rastovaca) and entrance 2
Which entrance will be better see the park and better for transportation?
hi can you recommend a tour from split or zadar to the lakes as I have limited time on this trip
I am landing in Zadar at 16:15 on Sunday, would there be a bus travelling to plitvice lakes as late as 17:00? Also our return flight is at 11:10- so would need a bus back to Zadar around 07:00. Does anyone know if the buses run this early or late?
I have tried looking on the bus website yet it only directs me to car hire and not bus times. I am getting worried that I will not be able to travel between destinations at these times, and I will not be able to hire a car.
I would be most grateful if anyone knows the answer.
Thanks in advance :)
I have read on here that there is a charge to enter the park. Does anyone know the charge for a two day pass?
Which of the entrances would be more convenient to reach the bus stop for return journey to Zagreb in the evening? I am planning to enter from entrance 2, follow trail H and then exit from entrances 1 to go to the bust stop. Does it make sense?
I will catch early bus from zagreb to plitvice.In the evening I will go to Sarajevo(via Bihac).I need the details about these bus..anyone knows?
I will be visiting the lakes next week, but we only have 3-4 hours. I have seen many photos of the lower lakes seen from above where you look down on 2 blue water lakes parted by a wooden footpath. Can anybody describe where this view is taken from and how to get there? Thanks
Just wanted to double check if Plitvicka park is closed for tourists on any day of the week. I am most likely planning to visit on Sep 10th which is a Wednesday.
I'm trying to pack light for a 10 day trip to Croatia, which will cover a range of environments (beach/city/ parks). A trip to Plitvicka Jazera is high on the list and I'm wondering if it's worth it to bring my heavy hiking boots, or if I can get by with good walking shoes or runners. Will I be limited in park activities if I skip the heavy boots?
Would greatly appreciate any thoughts you have on this. We will be staying for one night, one day in the Plitvica Selo area so we'll be very close to Entrance #3. One of our group is a mobile 80 year old. While my initial thought was to do the shortest trail, A, does it make sense to start out (we'll have a car) at Entrance 3 and then move the car to one of the other entrances? I don't think she will do well with any steep trails (either going up or down). Thanks in advance.
Please can you advise if there are any walking routes within the park that provide the best top views of the lakes as we see in most googled pics of PLITVICE(of the cascade falls). The routes that i have seen on the park website shows only the routes at the same level.
Also since we are arriving at around mid day into the park in July can you please advise which entrance is best to use keeping the heat in mind so that we get the shady route for the afternoon and can walk in the open in the evening. We will be halting in Plitvice for the night, so we have 6-7 hours to cover the park. We are energetic and dont mind the uphill treks but its more practical i guess to walk uphill when its cooler in the day.
We were planning on visiting the Plitvice Lakes on a drive down from Zagreb on the way to Split on the 20th of May. I have seem some recent photos that shows the park quite flooded? Is this the case? Is it not worth visiting? Also will floods effect any where else on our drive from Zagreb - Plitvice - Split - Dubrovnik? I've heard it's flooding and people are being evacuated on the eastern side of croatia but can't find much information?
Thanks very much!
I did a little research on my own and found that the bus route from Pula to Plitvicka is as follows:
Pula-Rijeka-Karlova-Plitvička Jezera, which requires a few bus transfers.
May I know if there is now a direct bus service from Pula to Plitvicka Jezera?
Also, as I am still a student, I really wish to save as much as possible on accommodation. Is there any camping grounds nearby that provide tents or cabins for rental? Or any recommendation on cheap B&Bs would be greatly appreciated too.
A big thank you in advance!
the park is already open?
a friend told me that it's close now

I'm going to zagreb in 16 of july, for a 2 night sleep. I come at 11:30 in the morning. I want to go to plitvicka the next day I come... I understood that I need to buy the bus ticket at the central station... I want to take the earlier bus at 7:30 and go back at the last bus (17:50?). Will it be ok if I buy the bus ticket when I arrive (a day before I want to go there) or is it possible there won't be a seat on the earlier bus because it's the middle of July? Should I buy a train tickets in advance? if so, where can I order it? thanks for any help!
please help need to have more help on how to get there.thanks eliza

Hi all, I'm visiting Croatia at the end of May. My flight reaches zadar airport at 830pm at night and I plan to visit plitvice lakes the following day. May I know if it is safe/advisable to drive up there at night, or better to stay in zadar for the night before heading there the next morning? How is the road condition/lighting and weather now? If I remember correctly last year it still snowed in April. Thanks!
Is there any Public transportion from Split to the National Park. Google maps did't show anything.
Is it possible to hire a car at plitvice?
Hi , I wl visit this park in Dec 20 with my family , I heard that , bus return to Zagreb alway full ,

I would like some help on deciding if I should go to Plitvice for a day or stay a day more in Hvar. If I decide to spend a day in Plitvice, I will have two days and a half in Hvar (some say it is not enough). What would you recommend??
Thanks so much!
Hi, I will be travelling on my own from Australia to Croatia so would like to ensure I have the correct bus timetables. I fly into Zagreb on 17th August and plan to get the late afternoon bus to plitvicka jezera on the 19th and stay the night at the Bellevue Hotel. On the 20th Aug I will spend the day in the park and would like to get the bus to Zadar in the late afternoon/early evening. Can you please let me know if the 17.23 bus will be running on this day and if I can rely on the bus for my transport to Zadar.
M alternative is to spend a 2nd night there and then get the morning bus to Split - which means missing Zadar - any recommendations???
is it possible to visit the park with a baby stroller? I've seen some pictures and it seems the walkways are all of plaques of wood without safety nets....
Can anyone help?
There are several comments on the subject but I am still confused so troubling you all once again. Wanted to make a pit stop at Plitvice on my way from Zagreb to Split by bus.
1. Is it advisable or do I run the risk of not finding bus from plitvice for Split?
2. Will the bus drop me all the way to Plitvice? If not, how do I reach from where bus drops me?
3. Which entrance should I use? (I believe there are 2 entrances)
4. Is there any provision to keep my luggage safely while roaming in the park?
Any other advice or thing I should consider? I would be traveling there in September.
Thanks in advance!!
