The area of Plitvice Lakes, declared a National Park in 1949, is a valley situated between high forested mountains. Here lies a string of sixteen beautiful lakes and tarns of crystal blue-green colour, one below another. They are fed by many small streams and brooks and spill into each other in foaming cascades and thundering waterfalls.
