Registered on the Unesco World Nature Heritage, the Plitvice National Park has 20 000 hectares of nature in a valley and 200 hectares of unique lake. The protected area extends over 296.85 square kilmetres. There are lakes everywhere in the world, but the ones of Plitvice, as well as their localization, present a tuff phenomenon which grow, erode, die and rise.

The National Park is famous for its lakes arranged in cascades, 16 lakes can be seen from the surface. The lakes are all interconnected and follow each other.

You can admire immense waterfall where deafening falls joined all these aquatic expanses.

They are separated by natural doms of travertine barriers, the result of an underplay between water, air and plants. The water flows from an altitude of 636 to 503m over 8km. Then it forms the Korona River. You will wonder at the colors of the lakes, the waterfalls, the canyons of the lower lakes, the largest one being 78m high. You will enjoy the deafening sound.

This absolute highlight of Croatia can be visited on foot. It is about a 2-hour drive from Villa Maelise.
