The Upper Lakes

Together with our guide in the lead, we start with our tour by exploring the series of twelve interconnected lakes called the Upper Lakes (Gornja Jezera). The lakes also change color depending on the mineral composition of the water and the microorganisms living in them. This process ensures that the Plitvice Lakes are continually evolving. We’ll continue making our way through the fascinating landscape of the park until we reach the boat that will transport us to the Lower Lakes (Donja Jezera).

Lower Lakes

The Lower Plitvice Lakes system is formed in the canyon that is constructed of permeable limestone. The highest rocks in the canyon are about 40 meters. The travertine cascade formed between Kaluđerovac and Novakovica brod lake is visitors’ path leading down from the NP Entrance 1 towards the Veliki Slap waterfall and then further on around the Lower Lakes upstream in the direction of the Kozjak Lake. The climax of the Plitvice tour is undoubtedly the Great Waterfall (Veliki Slap), which is also known as the tallest waterfall in Croatia.

Veliki Slap – The Great Waterfall

The highest waterfall in the Plitvice National Park is Veliki Slap – the Great Waterfall. Witness the magnificence of the 78 meters situated at the very end of the National Park.
