Plitvice Lakes is a must-see!
The UNESCO world heritage site is a breathtaking maze of clear vivid green lakes, plank walkways, and numerous waterfalls in the heart of Croatia.
I spent a full day and it wasn't nearly enough time. Next time I'll stay near the park and spend at least a couple days strolling through.
The beauty of this place means a crush of tourists in the summer months but it's still absolutely worth a visit.
To Get There:
Take a bus from Zadar
I highly recommend going on your own versus a group. It's too special to be herded through on a schedule. I did a day trip from Zadar via public bus and it was so easy. To do:
- Buy a round trip ticket online or at the main bus station.
- Ask at the main bus station which bay the bus will pull up in. The people at the help desk are very kind and helpful. Their English is excellent.
- Hop on the bus. The ride is approximately 2 hours each way.
- Take the earliest bus there so you can maximize the day.
