How to get here

The national park can be reached via the state roads:

  • D429 (Selište Drežničko – Prijeboj) from the direction of Zagreb/Zadar
  • D52 (Vrhovine – Korenica) from the direction of Otočac (A1) (From September 26 to October 6, the state road DC52 Špilnik-Korenica (from 23 to 35+480 km) will be closed daily from 08:00 to 17:00 due to roadworks. The suggested alternative direction is from the direction of Plitvica: intersection of DC1 and DC52 (Borje restaurant)-DC1-Korenica-DC25 (Lički Osik)-intersection of DC50 and ŽC5144 (roundabout Čovići)-ŽC5144 (Zalužnica) and vice versa. In case of bad weather conditions, the work will not be carried out that day.)

The state road D429 passes through the eastern part of the park and past the two main entrance and reception areas in the visitor zone of the national park, Entrance 1 and Entrance 2. Visitor parking is provided at both entrances (for a fee), and the bus stop is situated in the direct vicinity of the entrance.

The road D429 is also used by the bus lines that connect the interior of Croatia with the coast. We recommend that you check the current bus schedule at the park information offices, or on the website of the Zagreb Bus Station (www.akz.hr). Since the main entrances are about 3 km apart, we recommend that you plan your visit in advance, in order to select from among the various tour programmes.

To improve movement through the national park, we recommend that you pick up a copy of our tourism map, available for sale at the park information offices (Entrance 1, Entrance 2, Flora auxiliary entrance, train station 3) and souvenir shops.
