Plitvice Lakes National Park

Wonder Type: Natural
Country: Croatia
Best of: Park, Lakes
The waters flowing over the limestone and chalk have, over thousands of years, deposited travertine barriers, creating natural dams which in turn have created a series of beautiful lakes, caves and waterfalls. These geological processes continue today. The forests in the park are home to bears, wolves and many rare bird species.
