|Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia|
I’m a big fan of national parks or basically any natural place when I travel. Give me a reasonably-sized city to live in, but when I’m travelling, I want lots of green and lots of blue.
Now, I know this is a big call, considering there are thousands of national parks out there across the world that I’ve never seen, but I think I have already visited my favourite national park. In the middle of Croatia you can find the Plitvice Lakes National Park.You can find it, and you should. I went here on a tip from a Slovak friend who went there a few times as a school girl, and she was right on the money in saying I’d adore it.
My photographs in no way do justice to how gorgeous this place is. Plitvice is a system of (apparently) 16 lakes (I would have said dozens and dozens, but they say officially there are 16) and numerous waterfalls. It was one of the first natural places to get World Heritage listing, way back in 1979. The water is an amazing colour, and the walks you can do around and through the lakes are just magical. As I said, it’s just too vast to really be understood from photographs, but perhaps my big smile in the photo below gives you an idea of just how wonderful I found it.
Now it’s your turn: what’s your favourite national park?
