Description

Plitvice lakes tour from Split is a perfect tour for all staying in Split and trying to take in the most of their holiday in Croatia. Plitvice National Park was founded in 1949 and became famous during the 1960s and 1970s through several Western film productions of Karl May novels. Many scenes have been shot at the lakes or waterfalls. The particular geographic position of the Plitvice Lakes and the specific climate features contributed to the emergence of many natural phenomena and a rich biodiversity within this area. Despite the vicinity of the Mediterranean, a moderate mountainous climate prevails due to the Velebit mountain range, which acts as a climatic separator between the coastal and continental region. For centuries, legends have been created about these mythical lakes, rivers, and waterfalls. According to one particular legend, inhabitants of this region were craving for water and thus called upon the magic queen to help them, which she did. This is the reason why Plitvice lakes have emerged. The availability of water has a great impact on the biodiversity of this area. The afforested mountain slopes serve as water reservoirs and as a refuge for many animal species. The wider area of the national park is one of the last areas in Europe, in which a great number of wolves and brown bears can be found. As a whole, there exist about 50 species of mammals. Also, 321 different species of butterflies have been discovered. Go beyond textbooks, explore the bypaths and untrodden depths of Plitvice and tell the world the glories of your journey.
