Short walk in the Plitvice Lakes National Park with a detour to Veliki Slap (Large Waterfall);
The Plitvice Lakes National Park is internationally known for its beautiful water system. Of the cascading lakes about 16 are currently visible on the surface. Others are underground. These lakes were formed by the confluence of several small rivers and underground karst flows. The lakes arranged along the flow direction are separated from each other by natural, particularly unstable travertine barriers. These are created by an interplay of flowing water, air and vegetation.
In the 1960s, the national park was the backdrop for numerous scenes in the film version of Winnetou. In the opening credits of Winnetou II, Pierre Brice rides past Veliki Slap, while Lake Kaluđerovac represents Silver Lake, including the caves above it.
This easy walk is suitable for everyone. Families with children can also discover the full splendour of the park on the easy circular route.

“They take pictures of the mountain climbers at the top of the mountain. They don’t take pictures along the way cause who wants to remember the relentless climb, the pain and anguish of taking it to the next level – nobody takes pictures of that, nobody wants to remember. We just want to remember the view from the top, the breathtaking moment at the edge of the world. That’s what keeps us climbing and it’s worth the pain, that’s the crazy part. It’s worth anything.“
