If you go to Croatia you should definitely visit Plitvice Lakes National Park - actually the main nature sight of Croatia.
How to visit the Plitvice Lakes in Zagreb
To explore the park on foot you need about 6 hours. But you will have enough time to walk along wooden bridges here and there leading across the water, see flocks of butterflies fluttering around enthusiastic travelers and evaluate the incredible waterfalls of the park.

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.
