This is our first trip to Balkan and we are in love with these beautiful countries. I wanted to visit Plitvice Lakes for a long time because of blue-green colored waterfalls and dense green forestation. Now I`m here and it looks just like Heaven!
Among many places they`ve visited during this trip, Plitvice Lakes was his personal favorite.
It`s not enough just to see the pictures or videos online. You have to come in person and feel the entire experience – hear the sounds, enjoy the cold and clean breeze and of course the mind-blowing scenery. It’s definitely worthy of its UNESCO world heritage listing.
Also, their local tour guide Mario from Natura turist travel agency left a deep impression on him.
He’s very passionate about the park and his job. He told me this place is his second home and he will do anything within his abilities to protect the nature. During the walk tour, I also told Mario my concerns about overvisitation, irresponsible tourists and possibly destruction of the park facilities and forest. I hope visitors will respect the nature.
Vincent would definitely love to visit Plitvice again.
Mario told me the best time to visit Plitvice area is mid-October and I can just imagine the beautiful autumn scenery!
