The beauty of the Plitvice Lakes National Park lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls. They are separated by natural dams of travertine, which is deposited by the action of moss, algae, and bacteria.
What makes the waterfalls here so beautiful are the renowned distinctive colors of the lakes that ranges from azure to green, grey or blue and change constantly depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of sunlight. Besides that, the Plitvice Lakes National Park is heavily forested and features a mixture of Alpine and Mediterranean vegetation. In winter the frozen falls are magnificent, in spring and in fall the water volume is higher. The Plitvice Lakes National Park is on the main road between Zagreb and Zadar, in the Licko-Senjska County, Croatia.
