Discover the national park - one of the world's greatest natural wonders


Plitvice waterfalls are a part of our UNESCO heritage and the biggest natural attraction in Croatia. CNN Travel declared Plitvice as one of 25 world's greatest natural wonders!

The National park is composed of almost 30. 000 hectares of woods and a dramatic string of 16 turquoise-colored lakes connected by a series of more than 100 waterfalls and cascades. The biggest of them - The Great Waterfall - is 78m / 255ft high.

The water flowing over the limestone and chalk has, over thousands of years, deposited travertine barriers, creating natural dams which in turn have created a series of beautiful lakes, caves and waterfalls. These geological processes continue today.

The park forests are home to 120 species of birds, as well as deer, boar, wolf and bear.

Well-laid out system of wooden walkways will allow us to pass all around the lakes and waterfalls and at the certain points we will use park trains and eco-boats to pass from one side of the lake to another.
