Day 8 – Plitvice Lakes National Park
We visit the famous lakes today, a UNESCO World Heritage site of
cascading waterfalls - the largest of which is Veliki Slap with a
drop of 200 feet - unusual karst formations and outstanding natural
beauty. The delightful lakes are rich with minerals, which creates
their blue-green colour, and surrounded by a variety of flora and
fauna. Boasting 1,267 different plants - including 55 varieties of
orchid and rare plants such as spurge-laurel, leopard plant and
heartleaf oxeye - horticultural enthusiasts will have plenty to
admire. The north-western section of the park is of particular
interest, containing fir and beech trees believed to be up to 700
years old. In the afternoon, we join the train to Split, where we
spend two nights.
Please Note: For departure 27/05/2023
