falling lakes

Plitvice lakes, Croatia,

were declared as a national park in 1949.

The area of Plitvice lakes is situated in a valley where are sixteen marvellous lakes with very intensive blue-green water.

Lakes are fed by small brooks and spill into each other in many cascades and waterfalls.

The area is open for tourists.

The footpath on a wooden trail leads through the park, around the lakes and below the cascades and waterfalls.

The Plitvice lakes

were entered in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979.
