    Thank you for your post. Croatia is an amazing place and I think it will be more famous after World Cup 2018.

    Hi Yulia,
    Very much interested to go Plitvice National park second week of May 2019. However, I am having difficulty planning the itinerary.
    Me and my hubby will be flying from Amsterdam. Is there a direct flight to Plitvice? Or should we stay in Zagreb or Split then go over to Plitvice? Would like to spend 2-3 days in Plitvice actually to have the full experience..Any help/ advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

      There are no flights to Plitivice as they dont have an airport. I went there from Zagreb, you can rent a car (recommended as the coast is really beautiful) or go by bus from Zagreb.
      You could also go from Split, there is an airport there probably direct from Amsterdam but i am not sure, you would need to double check that.
      Have a great trip! 🙂

    We will be staying at Guest House Plitvice Villa Verde in June 2019. We will be driving from Karlovac to the hotel. Is there any place you can suggest for the day of the drive to stop along the way and recommend a place for dinner. We will be spending the night at the hotel then going the next morning to Plitvice

      Hi, Tony!

      You can stop at 16 Lakes Restaurant in Grabovac along the way and have dinner there – I heard the food is good and the atmosphere very nice. Another suggestion would be Caffe & Bistro Plum in Rakovica (for the truffle pasta). Either one of these should be good for dinner! 🙂
