The park is located in central Croatia.

As you can see, its beauty is absolutely unrivaled.

Contrary to popular belief, the lakes were not created when Mother Nature got drunk at a pool party.

The cascading lakes are the result of the confluence of several rivers, including some that are subterranean.

Plitvice Lakes, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is home to 16 interconnected lakes.

According to UNESCO, "The waters flowing over the limestone and chalk have, over thousands of years, deposited travertine barriers, creating natural dams which in turn have created a series of beautiful lakes, caves and waterfalls."

Wooden footbridges allow visitors to explore the lakes from one end to the other.
