When is the best time of the year to visit Plitvice Lakes?

Since the lakes are so different with every season, they worth visiting at any time of the year. However, we would recommend visiting the lakes in the fall season as the trees start changing colors or in spring, when the waterfalls are at their peak. You’ll certainly want to stay away in the months of July and August. Why? Well, they are well-known as the busiest months of the year, having too many tourists in Croatia.
