March 27 and 28 Plitvice National Park

Plitvice National Park is one of the top attractions in Croatia. It features 16 lakes and countless waterfalls. Guests to park can walk wooden plank pathways throughout the park can take in the sites. Even though it is the off-season, there were numerous people when we got there around 10:30 a.m. We choose to stay overnight in the Jezera Hotel (within the park) which offered a night’s lodging, breakfast, and two day’s admission to the park for about $100.

As it turned out, there was no need to stay overnight because we later learned that the upper section of the park was closed until April 1. We walked the bottom section of the park three times in about 2 hours. So, there was really no need to spend additional time there.

Many of the waterfalls and lakes are in an impressive canyon.
