Go to Plitvice Lakes, Croatia
Are you thinking about visiting Croatia for the first time?
If so, I am a bit jealous, because you are about be charmed by some of the most beautiful countries on Earth! Croatia has countless spots to visit!
But let me help you plan your itinerary a little:
Plitvice Lakes National Park should be in your Croatian bucket list for sure!
The Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia’s most popular tourist attraction, was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979. Located roughly halfway between capital city Zagreb and Zadar on the coast, the lakes are a definite must-see in Croatia. (As confirmed by the many emails we’ve received!)
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.
