Plitvice Lakes

My first trip to Croatia was absolutely amazing! It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen, and it brought my closer to nature.

It is the ultimate hiking experience anybody can ask for. But if you are tired, you can also hop on a boat and just enjoy the view.

 

 

The Plitvice Lakes are part of the UNESCO World Heritage. It is Croatia’s largest national park and consists of 16 lakes, that can be divided into Upper and Lower Lakes. The turquoise colour of the water is simply stunning and clear as a mirror. You can see curious little fish and brought down trees that are now covered with chalk.

There are countless waterfalls. Even when you are walking on the stairs you can see them under your feet.

 

 

The highest of all is Veliki Slap, which is 78 m tall. Wedding ceremonies are often held here.

Although the symbol of the park became the bear, you can only see them on postcards and magnets. But don’t you worry! Squirrels, lizards and friendly ducks are happy to great you.

 

 

It’s hard to say goodbye to such a beautiful place, but the view from above is also priceless. Hope I can come back someday.
