Plitvice Falls

The many waterfalls of Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia are Pandora-like — what you imagined paradise might be like. Water seems to cascade from every ledge and crevice, gathering in crystal clear lakes along the way. Interestingly, the lakes between the falls are separated by natural dams of travertine, which is deposited and built by the action of living things: moss, algae and bacteria.
