CROATIA ~ Plitvice Lakes National Park - UNESCO

... Breathtaking Natural Wonder... a little piece of heaven....turquoise terraced lakes connected by waterfalls... crystal clear, blue-green colored water... the nature looks magnificent, unique and magical... a fantastic new NP to add to my collection... the Plitvice Lakes National Park is a popular tourist attraction ... Thanks a lot Martina!!❀◕ ‿ ◕❀

Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of the oldest national parks in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia. The park was founded in 1949 and is situated in the mountainous karst area of central Croatia, at the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The beauty of the National Park lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls, and set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves, boars and rare bird species. The National Park covers a total area of 300 square kilometres, whilst the lakes join together over a distance of eight kilometres.

In 1979, Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to the UNESCO WHS list. (but UNESCO warned the Park that they will remove them from the list if they become to much touristy.)
