Plitvice Lakes are Croatia's largest national park, spanning across nearly 300 kilometers of forested hills, including 16 lakes and countless waterfalls.
This natural phenomenon became a part of UNESCO's World Heritage list in 1979. Depending on the time of the year and the amount of sunlight, the colors of the lakes range from emerald green, to azure blue and sometimes even a calming gray. The wooden walking trails allow visitors to safely explore the park while capturing the most spectacular views. This astonishing natural masterpiece continues to attract an increasing number of tourists yearly.
Plitvice Lakes National Park include almost 12 000 acres of which 9 000 are forest, 3 000 are grassy areas and small villages and almost 100 acres of water.
