• Today you can choose to head out for a full day excursion to visit Plitvice National Park. It is is one of the most beautiful and best preserved national parks in the country. This is why the entire lakes and surrounding area was declared as a national park in 1949 and is listed on the UNESCO`s list of World Heritage Sites because of its exceptional beauty. It is a valley situated between high forested mountains in which lie, one below another, a string of sixteen beautiful lakes of crystal blue and green waters. Fed by small streams and brooks, they spill into each other in 92 foaming cascades and thundering waterfalls. The Plitvice lakes` scenery will simply delight you regardless whether you are walking the paths and wooden bridges, taking a boat ride or just taking photographs.
