We had a lovely stay at Plitvice. We booked a place not far from the lakes in the little town called Korenica. We decided to stay at Phoenix apartment no. 12 and we didn’t regret it. The house was amazing and the owner of the place made our stay even better!
If you decide to visit Plitvice lakes in the winter time you’ll pay the entry ticket a bit less (55 kn) but not all the routes are open this time of the year. Still, definitely worth it! The big waterfall was almost frozen.
You need to have good shoes and warm clothes. During our stay there, only route B was open but luckily we checked with a park ranger who told us that we can return to a starting point using the route K (which is amazing). Pictures with ducks were taken while walking down route K.
Famous Macola restaurant is situated in Korenica, and they serve delicious food!
