The world’s a spectacular place, full of hidden and overt beauty in every corner.
But beauty’s also subjective. It’d be impossible to get a unanimous decision on the most beautiful places around the world, but we believe this list is a good start to plan your travels.
CNN placed Plitvice lakes on this amazing list.
Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia
Croatia’s status as the ultimate European outdoor escape has long been assured. And in Plitvice Lakes National Park, which has enjoyed protected status since 1949, lies one of the most arresting sights in the world: 16 lakes connected via waterfalls that are constantly changing the formation of the tufa rocks over which they flow.
A vast network of paths and boardwalks around the lakes make it easy to explore, with lush woodland and beguiling wildlife at every turn.
