Fishes abound in the cristal clear water of the Plitvice lakes
Plitvice is Croatia`s oldest and largest national park with 16 emerald green lakes stretching 8km in length and forming part of the unique karst landscape. The water is supersaturated with calcium carbonate which deposits as small crystals forming the several terraces along the path of the river. This process started about 10,000 years ago and still continues today.
