Plitvice Lakes is National Park, the main natural treasure of Croatia. Since 1979 it is included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage. There was no access for tourists prior to 1958. Since that time were built numerous wooden walkways and put pretty strict rules.

Hallmark of the park are the waterfalls Veliki Slap and Sastavci. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

It is forbidden to swim in the lakes of the park, although when we walked in remote, unpopulated parts, we've seen bathing tourists. You can not build fires, picnics, come with dogs. And nobody touch all the trees that fall into the lake.

Because the trees and leaves are not removed, they quickly covered with calcicoles, which turning to stone and form solid deposits spanning the river. Because of this, more and more waterfalls appeared in the park every year. Height difference between the upper and lower lakes is 133 meters and the number of waterfalls already exceeded 140.

On March 31, 1991 in the park was the first armed clash between Croatian police forces and Serb territorial defense within the Croatian war, military conflict caused by the exit of Croatia from Yugoslavia. Several times lakes were the battlefield, therefore, despite the well-developed infrastructure, even now mines are found in the vicinity of the park.
