In Plitvice National Park there are a system of 16 interlocking lakes. Between them are some of the most grand and beautiful waterfalls I’ve ever seen. I try to see a waterfall once a month because of the insane energy and glee they bring to my soul. I would love to take a trip here one day – Croatia seems to be one of those hidden charms. I’m going to dig deeper into visiting the country and I’ll continue to share my journey with you all.

This land itself has been inhabited by Illyrians, Thracians, Celts, Japods, Romans, Avars, Slavs and Turks – pretty insane. It has seen borders be drawn and redrawn many many MANY times. The blogs are saying a must-see is the Veliki Splat, a 100 foot waterfall that anyone has access to. Bummer alert – you do need a ticket to visit and there is no swimming allowed anywhere in the park. This seems to be the trend of most European national parks.
