Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

First stop on our Croatian vacay was Plitvice Lakes. It was a 2-hour bus ride south of Zagreb.

[History Lesson: It is the oldest National Park in Southeast Europe and largest Croatian National Park. It represents a phenomenon called karst hydrography and was created through the confluence of several small rivers. It’s arranged in cascades and has an ever-changing appearance. The 16 lakes create new waterfalls and hues of color dependent of the quality of minerals and the angle of sunlight. As one traveler put it, “they simply must be seen.”]

We walked through out the park for nearly 5 hours. With our entry ticket we had access to the ferry and tram system. It is one of the most spectacular places I’ve ever seen. Besides walking, snapping pictures and only tripping 3 times, the day was pretty uneventful in terms of hilarious antidotes. I’ll just leave you with the pictures below. Stunning.
