Plitvice Lakes National Park
The enchanting, ever beautiful and unmissable Plitvice Lakes National Park has been on UNESCO’s world heritage list since 1979. Sixteen turquoise lakes are formed by natural dams of travertine mineral deposits which then spill into each other creating hundreds of waterfalls. The lakes are divided into upper and lower and are surrounded by 8km of pathways or wooden walkways.
Plitvice Lakes National Park is approximately 80 minutes by car or bus from Karlovac. Buses leave daily in the morning and return throughout the afternoon and evening. Hostel Na putu is perfectly located on the east-west/north-south junction of all the main bus, train and road routes of the country which makes it an affordable accommodation option and convenient stop off point to go explore the lakes. Unfortunately you cannot swim there, but after a long hot day hiking you can cool down when you return to the city where our four rivers will be waiting for you!
