There is a place where you can see cascades of lakes, waterfalls, and rivers, all connected in one. Sixteen lakes are divided into two systems: the Upper and Lower Lakes. There is a place where you can witness the strength of water that runs trough the rocks for millennia, forming the vision of the rock as it pleases. Plitvice lakes are only 1% or the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia. They are a geological and hydrological karst phenomena. Of course, the geological processes are still happening so we can easily say that the Plitvice lakes are a fairytale in progress. This wonderland was perfectly captured on a video by one nature aficionado in January 2017.
Plitvice is one of the oldest national parks in southeast Europe and the oldest and largest national park in Croatia. It was open as a national park all the way back in 1959. Since 1979, the park has been on the on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Nevertheless, it’s possible to camp on the camping ground near the park or book a room in a number of hotels in the park. The website of the park is perfect and has all the info you need, plus, there is a possibility of taking a virtual tour.
It’s hard to say whether it’s better to visit the Plitvice during the summer and spring or winter. During warmer periods, the water runs fast and you can enjoy the smells and sounds of freshness. But during the winter time, well, it is absolute magic.
This guy took his dog and went for a run. Since the forests in the park are a home for bears and wolves, the dog is on a leash. The leash did not stop him from blatantly enjoying himself, though. This video of the untouched nature is the only thing you need today to start your week properly. Pure white snow, ice and a husky – what more can one ask for?
