Plitvicka Jezera - City of Croatia
Plitvicka Jezera is a municipality in central Croatia, in the eastern part of the Lika-Senj county. Its total area is 539.08 kmē. The main town and seat of the municipality is Korenica. Other smaller towns and villages are Bjelopolje, Jezerce, Gornji Vaganac, Licko Petrovo Selo, Plitvice and Smoljanac.
During the Croatian War of Independence and the Krajina uprising, many areas were mined to stop enemy advances. The area around Korana Bridge has recently been demined, but there are still some others still suspected to be mine contaminated, as for reports from the local NGO Croatian Mine Action Centre.
Many local inhabitants of Serb ethnicity left the municipality during the war, with around 1,500 - 2,000 of them returning once the situation improved.
Let's take a walk through this unique harmony of natural beauty. Let's enjoy this inestimable gift of nature all year long. Each of the four seasons has its own little story of different colours, sounds, patter of the waterfalls, odours and quietness -life in a word. There are sixteen blue-green lakes connected to each other by a series of waterfalls, resembling a pearl, all embraced in a magic greenery of the forests and meadows. Every nook and cranny of this rich vegetation is a wonderful place for birds, butterflies and game of all sorts to live. Words fail to describe the beauty and harmony of the Plitvice Lakes. Come and enjoy this intact primeval nature.
