May 24, 2020 – The director of Plitvice Lakes National Park, Tomislav Kovacevic, said during HRT’s ‘Theme of the Day’ show that, naturally, they have to raise ticket prices in the season, given that they have almost 700 employees. reports that Plitvice Lakes National Park had lowered ticket prices – and currently, you can enjoy Plitvice for 50 kuna. However, prices will soon rise to 90 and return to 200 kuna. Kovacevic stated that this year, they introduced two promotional weeks, primarily for the local population, so that they could afford a visit.

“The Croatian public is perhaps less familiar with the fact that from November 1 until March 1, the price is very affordable. It was 60 kuna for years, this year it will be 80 kuna, so acceptable again. Anyone who has seen Plitvice under the snow, will certainly return,” Kovacevic said.

He added that they started well at the beginning this year, but there was a break due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, he is pleased with the trend after May 11.

“I can almost say that the season has started at Plitvice Lakes, regardless of the fact that we have a promotional spring. Every day we have 5,000 or more visitors, which is a limited number, 50 percent of what we normally receive,” Kovacevic said.

He stated that due to the protection of Plitvice, one-way traffic was introduced and there are no more long-distance boat rides, and train rides are also excluded.

The director of the Kornati National Park, Sime Jezina, said that in the last two months, they had estimated that there would be no season at all, and now they have come to the conclusion that they will do well this season, and maybe have an extraordinary post-season.

Jezina points out that they earn most of their income in June, July, August and even September. 

“So far, these two months have not had an excessive effect on our revenue side,” says Jezina, adding that he does not dare to say that the figures will be like last year’s or the year before that, but that he is still optimistic.

Jezina states that the Kornati Islands are a huge territory, so even in August, there are places to sail, and he hopes that this year nautical tourism will be an absolute hit.
