After breakfast at the hotel start the tour to the magnificent Plitvice Lakes. Every season of the year brings a different spectacle for the senses at the Plitvice Lakes. The Plitvice Lakes are famous for their 16 cascading lakes that form a gorgeous ring of water. The stunning scenery in the park was created by the flow of water over limestone that over time created travertine barriers that resulted in waterfalls, lakes, and caves.
The Park was designated a national park in 1949 and in 1979 UNESCO entitled it a World Heritage Site. Plitvice National Park can rightfully be called the most magnificent place in all of Europe. Lunch at a local restaurant on your own. Continue the walks through the park and forest and enjoy the beauty surrounding you. Return to the hotel in Zagreb in the evening.
