Piltvice Lakes or Krka Waterfalls?

Hi all!

Me and my family are travelling to Split next Sunday and are planning on visiting some of the gorgeous waterfalls Croatia has to offer.

We're torn between visiting the Plitvice Lakes or the Krka Waterfalls. Plitvice Lakes are a 3-4 hour car/bus drive from our apartment in Split, whilst the Krka Waterfalls are only 1 hour away. We also quite like the idea of swimming in the waterfalls, which we know you can do at Krka but not at Plitvice. However, I've heard the Plitvice Lakes are gorgeous and the highlight of people's trips, literally unmissable.

Do we go to Plitvice or Krka?

In your case I would do Krka NP. To me, it is just as stunning as Plitvice. Also keep in mind that if you do Plitvice as a day trip from Split, you will be there when it is extremely crowded and it will take you 6-7 hours just to walk lower and upper lakes.
