Plitvice Lake- Croatia












The stunning Plitvice Lakes National Park lies in the Lika region of Croatia. The park is surrounded by the mountains Plješevica, Mala Kapela, and Medvedak, which are part of the Dinaric Alps. The place is famous for its 16 lakes known as Plitvice Lakes. The 16 blue-green Plitvice Lakes, which are separated by natural dams of travertine, are situated on the Plitvice plateau. Waterfalls connect the lakes, and the tallest waterfall is Veliki Slap at 70 meters (230 feet) tall.These lakes are categorized in two separate groups namely Gomja Jazeera or the upper lakes and Donja Jazeera or the lower lakes.Main attraction of these lakes is that water in them frequently changes its color according to microscopic organisms in it and the angle at which sunlight floats on the surface of water. The Plitvice lakes area boasts a large variety of interesting and colorful flora and fauna. Visitors can enjoy walking and hiking the many pathways and trails, or exploring the lakes by boat. The park itself has 3 hotels and a campsite, otherwise visitors can find accommodation at any of the number of villages and cities nearby.
This mesmerizing view of the place virtually enforced government of Yugoslavia to announce it as National Park in 1949 and 1979 the place was inscribed as the land of outstanding natural beauty.
