Imagine lush woodland and glittering lakes, crystalline streams and tumbling falls. Boasting boundless beauty that has aged with profound grace; The Plitvice Lakes National Park areas is a sight to behold when visiting Croatia.
Located between Croatia’s capital city Zagreb and the coastal hub Zadar; the beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage site lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls, and set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves as well as boars and rare bird species. Additionally, the National Park covers a total area of 300 square kilometres, whilst the lakes join together over a distance of eight kilometres.
It’s not hard to be captivated by such beauty as you meander the 18km of wooden footbridges and pathways that guide you around the edges of this natural wonderland; journeying you beneath clouds of butterflies, across rumbling waterways. There is an altitude difference with the highest point at 1,280m and the lowest at 380m. With the largest waterfall, Veliki Slap at 70m tall.
Additionally, when visiting this exquisite region, be sure to take a meditative moment; breathe in the spectacular surrounds; feel rejuvenated and leave restored and inspired.
We had an amazing Croatia holiday. The Croatian Travel Specialists did a thorough job in organising everything so we didn't have to worry about a single thing. We loved the personally tailored itinerary because it included interesting places to stop along the way. All of this made for an excellent trip.Mary, Crown Resorts
