Plitvička Jezera

Plitvice Lakes National Park is easily one of the most amazing places I have ever seen.

Plitvice is the largest and oldest of Croatia's national parks and is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The lakes and waterfalls are continuously changing through a process called karst hydrography - which creates the cascades through a biodynamic process of tufa formation. Tufa or travertine is a porous carbonate rock formed by the sedimentation of calcium carbonate from water. It builds barriers, sills and other forms is karst rivers and streams.
