Full-day Excursion Departure in the morning towards Plitvice. Upon arrival, a tour of natural sights, a boat ride on the lake, walking around the lakes and waterfalls, and part of the lower lakes by train and on foot. With its exceptional natural beauty, this area has always attracted nature lovers, and already on 8 April 1949, it was proclaimed Croatia’s first national park. The Plitvice Lakes were internationally recognised on 26 October 1979 with their inscription in to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The lake system is comprised of 16 named and several smaller unnamed lakes, cascading one into the next. Due to the geological substrate and characteristic hydrogeological conditions, the lake system has been divided into the Upper and Lower lakes.
