Album: National Park Plitvice Lakes , Region: National Parks
They are fed by many small streams and brooks and spill into each other in foaming cascades and thundering waterfalls. Due to their unique evolution and beauty, in 1979 the Plitvice Lakes were entered in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The waterfalls of Plitvice Lakes National Park were formed by mosses that retain calcium carbonate as river water rushes through the karst. Travertine, or tufa, builds up sprouting plants which grow on top of each other to create barriers to the river. Croatia have 472 sq km of national park on land and 224 km that compose the Kornati Islands.
