The lakes in the park are known for their vivid turquoise and emerald colors, which are caused by the reflection of sunlight off the limestone and dolomite rocks on the lake bed. The lakes are divided into two groups: the upper and lower lakes. The upper lakes are surrounded by dense forests and are more rugged, while the lower lakes are more open and have more waterfalls.

The park is also home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, including brown bears, wolves, lynx and over 120 species of birds. The forests are mostly made up of beech, fir, and spruce trees, while the meadows are filled with wild flowers and grasses.

Visitors to the park can explore the lakes and waterfalls via a network of walking trails and wooden board walks that wind through the park. The trails range in difficulty from easy to moderate and offer stunning views of the lakes and waterfalls. Visitors can also take a boat ride across the largest lake in the park, Kozjak, or hike up to the top of the nearby hills for panoramic views of the park.

Overall, the Plitvice Lakes National Park is a must-see destination for anyone visiting Croatia. Its natural beauty and unique geological features make it a truly remarkable place to explore, and its rich biodiversity makes it an important conservation area for future generations to enjoy.
