A few facts about the Plitvice Lakes
Inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list due to its outstanding and picturesque series of tufa lakes, caves, connected by waterfalls, the Plitvice Lakes are one of the oldest and largest national parks in Croatia.
The national park was founded in 1949 and is in the mountainous karst area of central Croatia, at the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The name Plitvice was first mentioned in a written document in 1777 by Dominik Vukasović, the priest of from the town of Otočac.
This name was designated due to natural phenomena that have created the lakes. Nature formed shallow basins (Croatian plitko means shallow), which have been filled with water.
The national park is world-famous for its sixteen lakes that are arranged in beautiful cascades.
For centuries, water has changed the limestone and thus the landscape of this area. The emerging travertine barriers decelerated and retained the flowing water over time and these dams are continuously growing.
These lakes are all interconnected and follow the water flow, separated by natural dams of travertine, deposited by the action of moss, algae, and bacteria.
In 1493, not far away from the Plitvice Lakes, a decisive battle in Croatian history between the Austrian and Ottoman Empire took place. During the Battle of Krbava Field, nearly all of the entire Croatian nobility was killed.
In 1871, the famous Croatian politician Eugen Kvaternik was killed north of the lakes in the town of Rakovica, during the famous Croatian uprising against Austrian-Hungarian predominance, marking the long and difficult struggle for Croatia's independence.
During the Croatian War of Independence in the 1990s, the first Croatian soldier was killed in this area, in what is known in Croatia as Bloody Easter.

The town is built on an island close to the coast and later became connected to the mainland in 1763.
