A day trip from Zagreb to the most popular national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site in Croatia. Departure is at 8:30 am from the bus stop at Park Zrinjevac, in front of the Meteorological post. After a 2-hour bus drive, we make a stop at Rastoke Village. It is a nice introduction to the amazing nature of the area located just 30 minutes from Plitvice Lakes. After the short break, we continue to the Lakes. Although an entrance ticket is not included in the price, you have a skip-the-line entrance. In the next 3 hours, you walk around the crystal clear lakes, enjoy the amazing waterfalls, take the train ride to the great waterfall and go for a boat ride across the big lake. The late afternoon drive back to Zagreb ends at the same spot where the day trip started, at Park Zrinjevac, a minute from the main square.
