Plitvička national park in Croatia offers several lakes and numerous waterfalls! We walked to the Big waterfall and around the lower lakes. This (and all the other waterfalls in the park) are very spectacular and seem to come straight out of the mountains. There are a lot of smaller waterfalls connecting the upper lakes, and our walk around Gradinsko lake gave us many views of what our nature can accomplish. Even though we visited the park slightly after the popular summer months, there was still plenty of visitors. However, we were lucky enough to avoid almost all the tourist buses during our stay here.
The temperature in the national park was approximately 12 degrees Celsius, but just a short drive to the south it started to rise. When we reached the Croatian coast after a few hours on the road the temperature had more than doubled.
We spent the evening in the old costal town of Trogir, just strolling and enjoying the environment. It seems like this town has become a bit over exploited with more tourists than locals. That aside we had a great time here and the views over the Adriatric sea with the sunset was incredibly beautiful. Unfortunately, this will be our only contact with the Croatian coastline (for now) as we have to prioritise a lot during our road trip in former Yugoslavia.
