The Plitvice National Park
The national park was founded in 1949. It is situated in the mountainous karst area of central Croatia, near the borders with Bosnia and Herzegovina. Plitivice Lakes are world-famous for their arrangement in cascades. Currently, you will be able to see 16 lakes from the surface. These lakes are a result of the confluence of several small rivers and subterranean karst rivers. The lakes are all interconnected and follow the water flow.
Between them, you will observe some magnificent natural dams of travertine.
