Plitvice Jezera – National Park in Croatia

The Plitvice Lakes National Park is quite a unique site in Croatia.  Although it’s quite a drive towards the center of the country, I think you will find it very interesting. The Croatian countryside is annoyingly similar to the Austrian one (remember, there was a war there very recently). What makes the lakes special is the fact that they are layered in a stairlike fashion (the altitude difference between the highest and lowest is over 130m!)

To be perfectly fair, there are some hindrances for people visiting this park. Everything seems to be forbidden to the visitor:

I am not exactly sure WHAT is forbidden here ???

Also,  given the huge area the park covers, transportation is quite poorly organized. On the other hand, the soil is calciferous  so the water looks like the lagoons in the Carribeans. Everything is set in the middle of a deep forrest:

Where there are several lakes situated on different altitude levels, one assumes that waterfalls should also be present. I will end the photo presentation with what I think is a spectacular photo of a waterfall caught in the Plitvice Lakes:

If you like these pictures, I have to confess that there are more photos to come from Croatia. Also, some of you may like the way that I see  nature.  To all of you I suggest watching this blog closely.
