Kozjak lake


The largest lake in Plitvice has an area of ​​81.5 hectares, and also a depth of 47 m, which makes it the deepest. A boat is leaving Lake Kozjak, heading towards Gradinsko Lake. This is where the real series of breathtaking waterfalls begins, and the 'prshtavci', ie the Big and the Small Prshtavac, are especially thrilling. The name Kozjak comes from goats which, according to legend, fleeing from wolves, crossed the frozen lake and perished in the ice.
