Natural Wonders of Southeast Europe

Croatia

Croatia

Daybreak light and fog on the Veliki Prstvaci waterfalls in Plitvice National Park, central Croatia. The turquoise-coloured lakes and pools found within the National Park are fed by springs and runoff from the mountains, pouring out over the limestone cliffs in spectacular waterfalls. This region, previously almost unknown outside the Balkans, is one of Europe’s true gems of nature.

Slavonian-Syrmian Cattle in Lonsko Polje Nature Park, central Croatia. These native Croatian cattle are critically endangered, with approximately 150-170 surviving individuals (2007 census). Lonjsko Polje Park is helping to preserve this threatened animal breed, which in turn can help manage pasturelands and preserve the Danube area landscape by grazing.

Colourful woods reflect in the still waters of Proscansko Lake in Plitvice National Park, central Croatia. The park was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979 and is a huge tourist magnet due to its outstanding and surreal beauty.
