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.
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!
