Kaluđerovac Boardwalk

This is a beautiful boardwalk at the beginning of Kaluđerovac lakes. On your right you will find numerous water cascades within tall grass. The boardwalk forms a nice curve which can be great for composing your shots.

Rocky Cliff

From here you’ll enjoy some of the most classic views over the lower lakes. The S-shaped boardwalk makes a great subject and the colour of the lakes from above is just amazing. This spot is not to be missed!

This must be one of the most photographed waterfalls in the national park. I never managed to find its name, hence the made-up fairytale name. To photograph here you will need a lot of patience as the boardwalk is very shaky and there are always many people passing by.

Veliki Prštavac Waterfall

This is the biggest waterfall of the upper lakes. After heavy rains the flow of water is impressive and you’ll be wet from the spray just walking past!

Veliki Prštavac Boardwalk

This spot offers more intimate scenes of water flowing on both sides of the boardwalk. The boardwalk itself is a good subject and you can incorporate the Veliki Prštavac waterfall as a background.
