Located just two hours from Croatia’s capital Zagreb, the Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of Croatia’s most spectacular natural sites and has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1979. The park is dotted with 16 stunningly blue lakes, 90 impressive waterfalls, vast forest lands, limestone canyons, and caves carved over thousands of years. It truly is a sight to be seen and well worth a visit for any family!
