Plitvice Lakes National Park

4.4
Plitvice Lakes National Park, a World Heritage Site, showcases 16 crystalline lakes connected by waterfalls. Created over thousands of years by water moving over limestone and chalk, these lakes sparkle brightly from vistas high above and from pathways running alongside. Surrounded by thick forests, the lush park is home to a variety of wildlife, including wolves, bears, and rare birds. However, with over one million visitors to the park every year, the fauna keeps its distance from the big crowds. The park features 18 km (11 mi) of wooden footbridges and trails built during Yugoslav rule for hiking, or you can use buses and boats. Plitvice Lakes National Park is in Central Croatia.
