Plitvice Lakes

The Plitvice Lakes National Park was incorporated as an incomparable natural phenomenon, an area of exceptional natural beauty and aesthetic value in 1979 as one of the first natural sites worldwide in the UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 1949, It was declared a first Croatian National Park because of its stunning beauty in the karst (geographical term) mountains.

Between 1962 and 1968 a large part of 11 movies were filmed in Croatia taken from Karl May novels. Even the most successful film in this series:“Treasure of Silver Lake“ (originally „Schatz im Silbersee“) was filmed at several places in the National Park, (in the film, Kaluđerovac Lake was the inspiration for the Silver Lake). At the time of socialism in the former Yugoslavia and Tito's dictatorship, and division of the bipolar East-West World, the film co-production between former Yugoslavia and West Germany, echoes sensational. Even more so, because in the former Yugoslavia, as well as in the whole former Eastern Bloc was constantly underlined the role of Germany in the World War II, in the media, movies, and even in the school curriculum. * For these reasons, this film co-production was quite a shock, for the Eastern and the Western Bloc. This gave Plitvice Lakes an explosion of publicity worldwide, and Today the Plitvice Lakes are 1st target of shore excursions in Croatia.

The National Park consists of a gallery of 16 cascading lakes whose colours are constantly changing from turquoise to green, gray or blue by natural occurring travertine barriers. There is an extraordinary series of lakes, waterfalls, forests and wildlife. It is available more than 38 km of hiking trails, wooden bridges, electric boats and train rides which enable its visitors to experience this natural water-karst phenomenon up close.
It is interesting that the lakes change their shape over time. Because of the particular plant species, and the chemical composition of the stones that solve its minerals in water, occurs sedimentation of about 7 millimeters per year on the rocks and plants that are in the water. This changes the shape of the bottom of each lake.

* Constant and long-term invention of the fictional enemies, probably did not improve the quality of life in former Yugoslavia, but it certainly helped to develop a national paranoia that was one of the causes of the war (1991-1995) and the break up of this unfortunate country.
