Plitvice Lake National Park
 
Plitvice Lake National Park

Plitvice national park is situated in the region of Lika, between the mountain massif of Mala Kapela and a spur of Licka Pljesivica, near the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina. Administratively, a minor part of the Park falls within the areas of Slunj, Otocac and Ogulin, but most of it is administered by Korenica (former Titova Korenica). The Park's headquarters is in village Plitvicka jezera.

==== PLITVICE LAKES NATIONAL PARK - ATTRACTION

The Park's greatest value and beauty comprises the sixteen beautiful lakes which flow into each other through a series of waterfalls, and the exceptional richness of the flora and fauna. The area is also home to an extremely wide variety of animal and bird species. Rare fauna such as the European brown bear, wolf, eagle, owl, lynx, wild cat and capercaillie can be found there, along with many more common species.

The water largely comes in from the Crna rijeka, Bijela rijeka and potok Ljeskovac (Black and White Rivers, Ljeskovac brook), which issue into the Proscansko jezero (lake). This lake lies at an altitude of 636 meters above sea level, and the water runs from it through the lower lakes down to the River Korana, racing over many travertine barriers of various morphological forms and creating countless falls and rapids of great beauty.

The lakes' unique colours, ranging from emerald green to turquoise, make the beauty of the scene and the attraction of this central part of the Park complete. On the basis of the World Natural and Cultural Heritage Convention, the Plitvice Lakes National Park has been entered in the UNESCO List of World Heritage as being a natural asset of universal and exceptional value and importance. The Plitvice Lakes are an excellent example of how a national park can be turned to account for holiday making purposes.

It is possible to stay here all the year round, and the lakes provide excellent conditions for recreation and relaxation. Lots of good hotels and motels are available here.
