How to get to the Plitvice Lakes ?

It is possible to reach Plitvice Lakes with the local travel agency which is in every tourist city
or with option certainly much more comfortable i.e. own car.

We chose our car, the more that we were traveling with a small child.
Below I describe route which we tour.
Makarska Riviera was a start point, where we spent the holiday.

The route to Plitvice Lake majority of time ran through paid highway.
After about 3 hours of ride and driving 300 km we finally reached the target.

On the spot there is a quite sizeable parking lot, very close to Plitvice Lakes. Its first part is “open” and has an asphalt surface, second is right next to the forest. Shadow of tall trees caused that this was a perfect space for parking our car:)
