Pick one, or maybe a couple of park routes, walk along the trails and stroll across the rustic wooden bridges, enjoy the stunning beauty of the 'Land of the Falling Lakes'.Referred to as the 'Land of the Falling Lakes' Plitvice Lakes National park is precisely that. Over thousands of years, surface and subterranean rivers have carved paths for themselves through the limestone, only to be halted by natural travertine dams, resulting in the formation of sixteen lakes all pooling into one another, creating one of nature’s greatest masterpieces. Aside from the grandeur of its cascading waterfalls, the national park’s lush forest is home to many endemic species, including the European brown bear, wolf, lynx, and numerous rare bird species.Plitvice Lakes is not all about the natural beauties, you can also discover a rich cultural and historical heritage like the traditionally crafted mills and sawmills driven by the power of water, which are gradually being restored and presented to visitors.
