NATIONAL PARK

THIS PLACE IS THE REASON WHY YOU HAVE TO VISIT CROATIA , AT LEAST FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE TIME*.
Plitvicka Jezera National Park is one of the most beautiful natural wonders in Europe. In a valley between high forested mountains lies, one bellow another, a string of sixteen beautiful lakes of a crystal blue-green colour. They are fed by many small streams and brooks and spill over into each other in foaming cascades and thundering waterfalls. Over the millenia, the waters of theese lakes have dissolved the limestone rock and carved out the valleay in which they now lie.

STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Waterfalls - "Veliki slap"

Through the sedimentation of calcium carbonate and the work of special kinds of algae and moss tufa or travertine has been deposited, and is still deposited to form the natural dams that separate the lakes. Since the process is going on today, just as it always has, new travertine barriers, curtains, stalactities, channels and cascades are being built and the existing ones are changing.

Crystal blue-green colour of the water

As it is deposited, the tufa coats the beds and banks of the lakes, giving the water a sparkling beauty and petrifying trees and stones which fall into the lakes. The water keep breaking through the travertine barriers at different places, so that the entire process of formation of lakes and dams is alive and very dynamic.

    I laghi di Plitvice sono uno dei posti che vorrei visitare la prossima volta che vengo in Croazia.
