16 October 2019 – Plitvice Lakes National Park is the oldest and largest national park in Croatia, celebrating 70 years this year since it was proclaimed the first national park in Croatia.
This year is also the 40th anniversary since Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list. To celebrate the occasion, Plitvice Lakes National Park will be running a promotion week from 21-27 October, offering discounted prices on entry.
During the week, entry will be 50 kuna for adults, 30 kuna for students and 20 kuna for kids between 7-18. There is free entry for kids under 7 and people with disabilities. The promo prices are available for online ticket purchases.
The promo week is just part of a number of activities to celebrate the two milestones. Earlier this year there were four themed weeks at the National Park, including geology and forests of Plitvice Lakes National Park week, cultural heritage and history week, flora and fauna week and water and sedge of Plitvice Lakes National Park week.
The national park is world-famous for its lakes arranged in cascades. Sixteen lakes can be seen from the surface and are a result of the confluence of several small rivers and subterranean karst rivers. The lakes are all interconnected and follow the water flow. The protected area extends over 296.85 square kilometres.
You can purchase the tickets on the website.
