Parking at National Park Plitvicka Jezera

Parking is not free in the park. Car parks around the National Park all charge for stay. There are however some free smaller car parks in more remote areas but you would then need to walk quite far to access the Park.

Please park responsibly, within marked bays, keeping away from verges and leaving enough room for maneuvering.
