The National Park Plitvice Lakes, which has been included on the UNESCO list of World Heritage since 1979, is widely known for its sixteen cascading lakes and waterfalls but, since recently, visitors can get to know the beauty and richness of the Plitvice forests as well.

With the aim of bringing the forest eco system closer and promoting the natural values of the park, two educational recreation trails have been opened to visitors – the 9 km long ‘Plitvica’ and the 21 km long ‘Čorkova Uvala’. The trails are mainly of an educational character but because of their length and configuration they can also be used for recreation purposes.

With the help of qualified guides and informative-educational (theme) boards that have been put up along the two paths, visitors are offered the possibility of getting to know the richness of the biological diversity of the park.

The paths are marked with mountaineering sign posts and arrows and must be strictly followed, as well as following the code of conduct.
