Plitvice: Land of Waterfalls and Lakes
Plitvice Lakes National Park is the oldest national park in Southeast Europe, and the largest national park in Croatia. With its bountiful waterfalls and lakes, the park looks like a Garden of Eden, or a bathhouse for the gods. Not far from the border of Bosnia, the park lies in a plateau between three mountains.
Visitors can tour the park on numerous bridges that criss-cross the lakes, or travel in boats to feel immersed in the landscape.
The park was inscribed on the UNESCO World Natural Heritage List in 1979 in recognition of its “outstanding natural beauty, and the undisturbed production of travertine (tufa) through chemical and biological action.”
