Highlights of Croatia, 2014 – Plitvice Lakes National Park

Continuing our journey of highlights from GrapeHops tour of Croatia; Land of Wine and History we board a bus and head to Plitvice Lakes National Park.

One of the most popular places to visit in all of Croatia, this lush and gorgeous national park is a series of lakes and waterfalls that seem to have every shade of green and blue within them.  The lakes are crisscrossed with wooden bridges to walk along and take in the natural beauty.
