Oprah includes Plitvice among 10 Marvels of Our World


Everything that Oprah Winfrey suggest to her readers and fans will be seriously taken in consideration. Nothing blows the mind quite like the curiosities dreamed up by nature and Oprah takes her readers to 10 awe-inspiring and absolutely humbling wonders of our world.

Here is what she say about Plitvice Lakes:

Deep in the woodlands of Croatia’s Dinaric Mountains is an enchanting valley populated by deer, wild boar, wolves, bears, and some 126 species of birds. But the valley’s gems are tucked in its limestone bottom: 16 terraced lakes that cascade into one another, spilling over mossy ledges and plunging down canyon walls. (One thundering waterfall drops 230 feet.) Depending on sunlight and the season, and the mineral composition of the bedrock, the colors of the lakes shift from azure to green to gray.
