What to wear and put in bag when visiting Plitvice Lakes National Park


A visit to National Park Plitvice Lakes is a special experience that lasts a few hours and demands a certain kind of wardrobe and stuff in your bag that will keep you fully packed. You will walk a lot, go up and down, and you have to be sure that you are properly dressed, as well as that you have everything you need.

First of all – shoes. The best advice is sneakers and in colder months some comfortable shoes without any heels.

Why? This is the path you will be walking on most of the time.

The wardrobe is planned depending on the month you are coming, but be sure to take more layers – so some jackets or shirts you can put around your waist or in a backpack. You will probably also ride on a boat without a cabin, so keep that in mind.

Yes, take a backpack. You don’t need much – put a bottle of water in, some light snacks, and extra clothes. You will want to sit down near the Great fall, and why to risk a chance to be thirsty, or a bit hungry from the jogging and amazingly fresh air.

To conclude, the best advice is – put on your sports outfit, and you are ready to go.
