Plitvice Lakes is the oldest and largest national park in Croatia. The park is situated in the mountainous region of Croatia, and it is one of the most visited places in Croatia. Absolutely every season is full of people, as it is extremely beautiful in every season.
With its exceptional natural beauty, this area has always attracted nature lovers, and 1949 it was proclaimed Croatia’s first national park. The process of tufa formation, which results in the building of the tufa, or travertine, barriers and resulted in the creation of the lakes, is the outstanding universal value, for which the Plitvice Lakes were internationally recognized on 1979 onto the UNESCO World Heritage List. The area covers 300 km2. For me, the park is most charming during the winter period, probably because I love the snow. Here are some pictures.
As it is in winter period, it is quite cold so do not come without warm clothes. The car parking is quite difficult to access as well and winter tires are obligatory. Park was half closed as there was a lot of snow, but we didn’t really mind as the most beautiful place is always opened.
