The Plitvice Lakes National Park is the oldest national park in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia. The national park is world famous for its lakes arranged in cascades. The lakes are renowned for their distinctive colors, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue. The colors change constantly depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of sunlight.
After the end of the Second World War, the unique natural phenomena of this area were acknowledged permanently. On April 8, 1949, the Plitvice Lakes were declared as a national park area and rigorous nature protection measures were established.
The area is home to many wild animals and rare fauna such as the European brown bear, wolf, eagle, owl, lynx and wild cat can be found there, along with many more common species. There are many amazing photos of the Plitvice Lakes and much more information and history about them –
