Head out to Pl­itvice Lakes Na­tional Park and mar­vel at the park’s 16 lakes which flow beau­ti­fully into cas­cad­ing wa­ter­falls and sea-glass pools be­low. The UN­ESCO World Her­itage Site can pro­vide vis­i­tors with plenty of walk­ing trails, an abun­dance of plant life, 160 species of birds to the wolves, brown bear and lynx and a bright fall fo­liage.
