Saw: Crystal clear waters and waterfalls so beautiful UNESCO wanted to join the party. I saw lakes so clear that you can perfectly see schools of fish better than in aaaany aquarium, walking paths that run through the park and over water amid large, beautiful cascading waterfalls and Disneyland like queues – but without an attraction at the end.
Loved: The two minutes I didn’t run into anyone on the paths.
Hated: The fuckers who left a huge pile of rubbish on the paths. Seriously, why would anyone do that? I hope there is a special place in hell reserved for people who litter natural wonders. People who blocked the path with selfie sticks for five minutes. And people who didn’t put the dogs on a leash or were not in control of them.
Ate: Sweet cheese pancakes, coleslaw salad and chips at one of the hotels. And ice cream once I reached the end point. The place I was staying at did an amazing dinner with mixed meat, salad with pumpkin oil and delicious home made bread.
Would I do it again: Oh yes, in fact, this was my 12th visit, but I would pick a different time and season as it was very very busy. The images were taken during the few moments not a lot of people were in sight and don’t represent how packed the place was. I’ll give you the low-down on when’s best to go and some of the routes in a follow-up post.
Have you been to the Plitvice Lakes or is it on your must go list?
