Plitvice Lakes is Croatia's oldest and largest national park. Exceptional in natural beauty, this area has always attracted nature lovers, which is why it was proclaimed to be Croatia’s first ever national park on April 8th in 1949. The process of tufa formation, which results in the building of the tufa, or travertine, creating barriers and forming lakes, has an outstanding universal value, for which the Plitvice Lakes were internationally recognised on 26 October 1979 by being added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
To mark its 70th birthday, Plitvice Lakes National Park is organising a number of different activities and surprises for its visitors, including four featured theme weeks (Geology and Forests, Cultural Heritage and History, Flora and Fauna, and Water and Sedras), and a series of 70 stories about the park's values and attractions which will be published throughout the year.
To mark this stand-out anniversary, visitors can make use of promotional entrance fee pricing from April 22nd to 28th exclusively online via the NP Plitvice Lakes webpage.
For more information you can visit the National Park's webpage.
