Plitvice lakes

 Plitvice lakes were declared a national park in 1949. It´s the biggest, oldest and most popular Croatian national park.

It is a forested mountainous landscape which contains 16 lakes of various sizes, filled with crystal turquoise water, which gradually overflow into one another over the length of 5460 meters. The lakes are classified within two groups; the Upper and the Lower Lakes.

They acquire their water from numerous streams and rivers, and they are connected to each other through cascades and waterfalls.

Broad forest ranges, exceptional natural  landmarks and waterfalls, the richness of flora and fauna, alpine air, the contrast between autumnal colours, forest paths and wooden bridges are part of a remarkable complex declared a natural inheritance by UNESCO in 1979.
