Find Waterfalls, Lakes, and Vivid Colors in the Plitvice Lakes National Park


Croatia's tourism industry is flourishing because of its outstanding natural splendor. The Plitvice Lakes National Park is the most gorgeous area of preserved forestry and wildlife in Croatia. During the Croatian War for Independence, this area became a war zone, and shortly thereafter, UNESCO labeled this park a World Heritage Site. The cascading lakes are surrounded by vegetation with rich colors that contrast spectacularly. There are 16 lakes that weave in and out through the Park, and most are a rare turquoise color found only in this region of Croatia.

 

Among the other natural wonders this site has to offer are the dense forestry and the incredible waterfalls. Travertine (sedimentary rock) forms in and around the bodies of water from the combination of minerals and ground materials located throughout the Park. The views that can be experienced in the Plitvice National Park are profoundly stunning. The unique way that each lake flows together through an interlaced series of waterfalls is magnificent, and it is one of the most beautiful sites that can be experienced in all of Eastern Europe.

 

Another notable feature of the Plitvice Lakes National Park is the distinction of different colors. Emerald green, azure, turquoise, and every color in between are found in the forestry that surrounds Plitvice. Travel to this area is truly inspiring as you observe the grace and splendor that combines all of these distinct elements into a finely woven tapestry of natural beauty.

 

On the outskirts of the National Park, you can find a number of hotels, restaurants, and other accommodations to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. If you are planning a trip to this exotic, vibrant location, you can get an idea of the vivid colors and extraordinary landscapes that await you by watching a video or reading a print publication on the region.
