There are two entrances to Plitvice Lakes National Park, Entrance 1 and Entrance 2, both situated on the same road, fairly close to each other and to the Lakes themselves. If you arrive by public transport (bus), the entrance is just there, very near the bus stops. If you drive, just slow down and read directions – finding an entrance is pretty easy. Once you are there, it is hard to get lost as there are plenty of useful info signs and arrows.
Entrance ticket prices vary from season to season and are sold as one-day or two-day tickets. Fees are much lower out of season while in the high season (June, July, August, and September) the prices get significantly higher. Here is an overview of ticket prices:
