Plitvice Lakes

 National park under UNESCO protection located in the very heart of the country, where an area of over 100 square miles is covered with lakes, waterfalls and forest. It contains 16 lakes, separated by natural dams, which can be explored on foot, using the sign-posted paths along their shores, or on the footbridges. In addition, electric buses and boats take visitors around the area following fixed routes.
The lakes are famous for their distinctive colors, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue, and which change constantly depending on the concentration of minerals or micro-organisms in the water and the angle of the sunlight. The whole plateau is densely forested, featuring a mixture of Alpine and Mediterranean vegetation, and is the home to a variety of animal and bird species.
