More global recognition for Croatia’s natural beauty…

Just a few days after the gorgeous Stiniva beach on the island of Vis was voted by travellers as the most beautiful beach in Europe, another stunning location in Croatia has been featured among the most beautiful in the world. One of the globe’s leading travel authorities, Conde Nast Traveler, have included Croatia’s famous Plitvice Lakes National Park falls in its selection of the 15 Most Beautiful Waterfalls in the World.

“You might know some of the world’s most famous waterfalls, like Niagara and Victoria, but what about Kaieteur Falls or Gullfoss? Here are 15 of our favorite cascades (and their respective heights) from around the globe,” writes Conde Nast Traveler, before naming the likes of Detian Falls in Vietnam, Kaieteur Falls in Guyana, Iceland’s Seljalandsfoss and Plitvice on its list.



Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of the oldest national parks in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia. In 1979, Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage register. It has a chain of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls, that extend into a limestone canyon.
