The Plitvice Lakes are the most famous national park in Croatia, as well as in Europe, and are included into the most beautiful notabilities of the world. The first thing you will notice when you see the Plitvice lakes for the first time are the luxury and abundance of water, the sounds coming from the waterfalls, the power and force of nature that exude awe. The Plitvice Lakes consist of 16 lakes, composed in a cascade manner, interconnected by waterfalls, while a kilometre long network of wooden bridges and woody paths enables a close contact between visitors and waterfalls and lakes. The nature creating waterfalls on its own, forests, plants of the national park, as well as the living world inside the lakes and beside them, are the reason for the thrill experienced by thousands of people every year. The damns between the lakes, over which amazing waterfalls and slopes fall, are created in a special, natural, ongoing way for thousands of years now. As a result of sedimentation of calcium carbonate, natural barriers are created on the bottom of the lake, as well as on top of submersed objects, growing in height and width, thus creating spectacular waterfalls. Great diversity and variety of natural shapes have led to the fact that the National park the Plitvice lakes has been included into the UNESCO's "World heritage list". The famous movie "Winnetou" was filmed at Plitvice, as well. The beauties of the Park manage a union with the harmony of nature, countless resort and field activities, long walks in nature and recreational programmes for all ages. At the Plitvice lakes, each season tells its own story with the help of colours, sounds, murmur of the waterfalls, odours, quiet and life.
