Zadar-North Dalmatia

For millions of years, the water has carved its way through travertine rocks making deep lakes and waterfalls. It is the most known Croatian national park which is in the UNESCO Register of World Natural Heritage since 1979. You can enjoy the long walk through the park and forest and get on board electric boats and enjoy the indescribable blue-green color of the lakes. This exceptional beauty of the lakes and waterfalls, rich plant, animal life and pure mountain colors attract many nature lovers from all over the world. This may be an unforgettable experience for you! The Plitvice Lakes have formed in a depression between the Mala Kapela Mountain in the west and the Plješevica Mountain in the east amidst the Dinaric Alps.

The national park is located at the national route D1 Zagreb–Split between Slunj and Korenica in the vicinity of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Other larger municipalities within the surrounding area are Ogulin, Rakovica, Otočac, Gospić and Bihać in Bosnia.With regard to plant and animal diversity, the area of the Plitvice Lakes belongs to the most significant areas of Croatia. On the one hand, this is due to climatic conditions and on the other hand due to the location of this area, since the lakes are far away from polluted and noisy cities or industrial plants. For reasons of the poor industrial development of this region and early introduced protection measures, a nearly untouched landscape has been preserved. In the partially primeval beech and fir forests various rare species, such as the brown bear, have survived. At the Plitvice Lakes, all species continue to exist that have already existed before the coming of man. This is a rare case worldwide.
