A Place From Fairy Land: Plitvice Lakes

There are some places that look almost unreal. They remind us of those faraway places in wonderland that exist only in our imagination. Like a chain of 16 crystal clear terraced lakes joined by countless smaller and bigger waterfalls. Why exactly 16? It’s not even a magic number. Still the number is 16 for real. Because this place exists – it’s Plitvice Lakes National Park in the Dinaric karst area of Croatia. It’s one of our favorite national parks in Europe. Why? We’d rather answer that with our favorite pictures…
