NP Krka Waterfalls vs NP Plitvice Lakes?
Do you wonder what National Park to visit, Krka Waterfalls, or Plitvice Lakes?
The best answer we can give you is both if you have enough time, of course. Both parks are truly breathtaking and well worth a visit.
But if you don’t have time, here are some main differences between them:
If you are staying in Split, Krka is much closer.
It is smaller than Plitvice Lakes but also offers more than enough beautiful sceneries.
With its seven waterfalls and a total drop in altitude of 242 m, the Krka is a natural and karst phenomenon.
For groups with small children, we would recommend Krka Waterfalls over Plitvice Lakes, because Plitvice Lakes are less stroller friendly.
Plitvice Lakes compared to Krka Waterfalls are much bigger, more famous, and some would say more beautiful, although beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
The beauty of the National Park lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls and is set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves, boars, and rare bird species.
In 1979 it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The National Park covers a total area of 300 square kilometers, while the lakes join together over a distance of 8 kilometers.
Whichever of them you decide to visit, you can’t go wrong. In both cases, you will spend a day in a truly gorgeous place.
