Hello, its andy(@and_ex_) again!

Today I will introduce everyone to a Croatian marvel filled with beautiful cascading lakes connected by waterfalls. These are located in the Plitvice Lakes National Park, A world heritage site.

This park is located in the Dinaric Alps mountain range, and is a part of the underground karst rivers. The water color is changes constantly between greens, blues, and grays, and is determined by the amount of minerals and organisms in the water, as well as the angle of the sunlight.

The park is made up of 16 lakes, located across 8km of land ranging between 636m and 503m in altitude.

Look at the clarity! You can see all the way to the bottom.

If I suddenly came upon this clearing in a forest, I would get very excited!

There is a path along the lakeside. It would be really relaxing to take a long walk along this path.

A different spot in the same park can give a very different impression.

There was a video of the area as well!

 

The Plitvice Lakes National Park was once considered in danger due to local conflicts, but the Croatian government was able to restore and open the area to tourists.
