Welcome to the official website of Plitvice Lakes National Park!
With its exceptional natural beauty, this area has always attracted nature lovers, and already on 8 April 1949, it was proclaimed Croatia’s first national park. The process of tufa formation, which results in the building of the tufa, or travertine, barriers and resulted in the creation of the lakes, is the outstanding universal value, for which the Plitvice Lakes were internationally recognised on 26 October 1979 with their inscription onto the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Due to ice on the trails we recommend next tour: walk from the north entrance (Entrance 1) above the canyon to St1 - panoramic veichle ride (St1 - St2) - boat ride (P1 - P3) - walk back to the Entrance 1 (above canyon).
Boats run every 60 minutes, while panoramic vehicles run every 30 minutes.
