Film The Land of Falling Lakes – Plitvice Lakes – Croatia
NATURE’s LAND OF THE FALLING LAKES reveals an enchanted water world in Croatia’s Plitvice Lakes National Park.
Nestled in a cluster of lush mountains is a mysterious ancient forest known as the “Devil’s Garden,” where the olm, lynx, black stork, and Ural owl live together in an enchanted world of thunderous waterfalls, cascading lakes, and subterranean caverns. Not long ago, mankind nearly destroyed this land with warfare. But nature has found an ingenious way to rejuvenate this land, almost as if by miracle.
This Eden is Plitvice Lakes National Park, the oldest national park in Europe, located in Croatia’s Dinaric Mountains. Plundered during the Balkan War a decade ago, Plitvice owes its new existence to a type of limestone called travertine, which has the ability to grow quickly and continuously, creating new pools and barriers, water slides, and cascades. There are 16 falling lakes arranged in breathtaking terraces, connected by countless waterfalls and rapids.
Underneath the Dinaric Mountains, rainwater gathers and rushes through subterranean caverns, drawing lime from the stone. Here, stalactites hang and species dwell that are so rare and strange they defy the imagination.
Explore the magical world of Plitvice and discover its unique animals and breathtaking landscape.
