Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of the oldest national parks in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia. It is one of the most popular destinations in this part of Europe!
The national park is world famous for its lakes arranged in cascades. Currently, 16 lakes can be seen 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. They are separated by natural dams of travertine, which is deposited by the action of moss, algae, and bacteria. The particularly sensitive travertine barriers are the result of an interplay between water, air and plants. The encrusted plants and bacteria accumulate on top of each other, forming travertine barriers which grow at the rate of about 1 cm (0.4 in) per year.
The forests in the park are home to bears, wolves and many rare bird species. The entire area around the lakes is so lush and wildly pristine that UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1979.
The lake system is divided into the upper lakes and the lower lakes. The lakes receive most of their water from rivers called Black River and White River. After it rushes past the Sastavci waterfall on the lower lakes, water continues to flow to the Korana River and the Plitvice brook, dropping from an elevation of 76m.
