What people are saying about Karlovac County

Elena & Dino as well as the driver that took us back to zagreb were great. We took a bus to the lakes ( 3h drive with a 20min stop for breakfast), spent 4h in the lakes, it was amazing, elena is a great guide with a sarcastic sense of humor. She took amazing pictures of me as i was a solo traveler and explained not only the history and names of the lakes but also detailed the history of all the place we drove by from split to Croatia in general. The trip back to zagreb was on a nice car as they were only two of us and the driver was kind enough to drive us to our hotels. Really great experience !

It was the most enjoyable and breathtaking natural scenery I’ve ever seen in Croatia. Our guide Sandra was excellent. Her bubbly personality and abundance of knowledge and jokes made our time at the park goes by so quickly. I highly recommend her to be your tour guide if you ever plan to visit the Plitvice National Park. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
