The Plitvice Lakes National Park is open all year round, every single day. Opening hours are adjusted to the length of the days and therefore vary depending on the season. Opening times are divided into winter, spring, summer, or autumn. The longest opening hours are in peak season which is July and August when Park is open from 7 am to 8 pm. The shortest opening hours are in winter when the days are much shorter and therefore the last entry to Park is at 2 pm.
Here are the opening times details:
|November to March
|Apil & May
|June & August
|September & October
|07:00 / 08:00
|18:00 / 19:00
Here is a breakdown of how seasons are determined by Park authorities:
Important: Depending on the weather, especially in the wintertime, if the weather is particularly freezing with significant snowfall, there are days when the park is just partly open for visitors, with intentions to reduce the risk of slips on ice, frost, or snow.
If you are visiting in the winter, keep up to date by checking the current weather forecast.
