Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia

A veritable Garden of Eden.

The Plitvice Lakes National Park is located in the Lika region of Croatia.  Sixteen beautiful lakes are connected by waterfalls, lush vegetation, and natural dams of travertine.  It is breathtakingly beautiful.

Visitors can hike the trails or sightsee by boat.  The park also has three onsite hotels and campsites, and there are other accommodations nearby (but who’d want to leave?)  This UNESCO World Heritage site is spread across a whopping 73,000 acres, and was established in 1949.  The park sees over a million visitors a year.

How gorgeous is this?

Got to bring your camera for this visit.

What a beautiful hike this would be.

 

Thanks to my friend Catherine who asked me about Croatia as a subject for this blog, after friends and family raved about its beauty.  They weren’t kidding!

  1. Oh Karen! This is beautiful! I’m so thankful for your research! I know it’s the holiday spot for celebrities to those who live in Europe. That is spectacular! I guess if it’s good for Prince Harry’s holiday it’s a great place to go! 16 days five star under 5,000 meal and flights included. I want to go! Your the best! Thanks Karen!

  2. Wow, if I ever win the lottery (unlikely, since I don’t buy tickets), that’s where I want to go. Want to come along? 🙂

  3. So lush. How is it we rape and destroy our environment when it is so beautiful.
    I have never been to Croatia and had NO idea of this miraculous place. Not hard on the eyes, is it. Wish I was there. Great research as always, Karen.
