The Plitvice Lakes Of Croatia

Hidden deep within the woodlands of Croatia lies a breathlessly stunning paradise: sixteen crystal-clear lakes fused together by an amazing series of waterfalls and cascades. Acclaimed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the waterfalls of Plitvice Lakes National Park  have been called some of the most beautiful on the entire planet. The lakes are famous for their ever-changing hues ranging from azure to green, gray or blue, depending on the mineral, algal, or microbial content at a particular season. Each lake is separated to the other by natural dams made of limestone travertine wrapped in lush vegetation, and charming wooden bridges wind across the water surface, stretching as far as 18 kilometers in length.
