Visit the Plitvice Lakes#1 of 6 things to do in Zagreb
On a huge territory of almost 30 hectares you will be able to see 16 lakes, 140 cascading waterfalls and 20 caves. A unique beech and pine forest grows there, so that urban residents can easily have an overabundance of oxygen :)
However, if you don't have enough time or energy, there is a backup plan for you.
For example, you can get to the upper lakes in the environmentally friendly bus, which departs from Entrance 2 every half an hour from April to October. Then you should walk back down to lake Kozjak, the largest lake in the Plitvice Lakes National Park. Here you can rent a boat and get to the lower lakes, where you will see the tallest waterfall named Veliki Slap (78 meters!). Boat rental costs 50 kunas. There you will find a bus stop and will be able to return back to Entrance 2.
