Plitvice Lakes, Croatia: A Feast for the Senses

Plitvice Lakes in Croatia are a national treasure just waiting to be discovered. We only stopped there to take a couple of photos but were so blown away by the sheer volume of water coming from all sides that we ended up staying for the whole day!

Plitvice Lake National Park is famous all over the world for its cascading lakes; currently, 16 can be seen from the surface. The colours change constantly depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of the sunlight. The park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage register in 1979 and every year, over 1 million people visit. We were proud to be among them!
