This was a definite highlight from our latest Croatia group tour in July 2014. Plitvice Lakes National Park is truly a wonder of the world. Designated an UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first National Park of Croatia, the place is surreal and dreamlike. We had a field day photographing the 16 lakes and numerous waterfalls that spill into each other. The natural phenomenon is formed by small rivers and an abundance of underwater rivers (known as karst). The waterfalls are created by naturally forming damns of travertine, a type of limestone created by the moss, algae, & bacteria in the flowing water. Mother Nature’s confluence of water falls spilling over lush, green limestone blockades into lake after lake is one of a kind. The photographs we captured on our travel club’s Croatia tour at Plitvice would have been enough to make this trip an amazing one even if this was all we saw (but we saw so much more of this amazing country indeed). Don’t miss the next adventure throughout Croatia!
