In this article, we will highlight the best Airbnb accommodation in Plitvice Lakes to allow you to conveniently experience the beauty of the park from a short distance.

Plitvice Lakes National Park is situated in Croatia, between the coast and near the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina. Its beauty consists of 16 lakes that are interconnected with each other, while also offering caves, caverns, forests, and approximately 90 waterfalls that can be discovered at any period throughout the year. However, considering the large amount of tourists visiting this site during the Summer time, we recommend to discover this paradise in the Spring when the waterfalls have plenty of water, or in Autumn, when the tree leaves change their color.

Many travelers also comment how the park looks like a scene from a fairy tale in the Winter time. There are several entrances that will allow tourists to access the site, therefore our best Airbnbs near Plitvice Lakes are spread across the map.
