Plitvice Lakes In Pictures And Video

How can I even begin to describe Plitvice Lakes? It’s hard to believe a place like this exists on Earth.

Located in the mountainous Karst region in Croatia, it’s known for a chain of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls, that extend into a limestone canyon. When we visited this park it was lush and green. The sound of the rushing water, rolling down the hills into the many lakes, filled the air. Walking through the park on the elevated wooden footbridges made the experience even more special. It was incredible to see so many heavenly waterfalls in one place.

As hard as I try, it’s impossible to properly do this park justice with words. So below is a video I made of this trip that I hope properly shares this experience.



Also, these are some pictures from photopin that capture the beauty of this wonderful park.
