    When walking the trails you are surrounded by trees, undergrowth, and pools of water, everything looking extremely healthy. It was autumn (fall) when we visited which gave us the beauty of the colourchange and carpet of fallen leaves to walk on. You have to be careful not to slip over on these damp leaves as you walk the trails looking upwards at the waterfalls and trees. It is easy to understand the richness of the forrest on soil which has been enriched over thousands of years by the falling leaves.

    Fallen tree

    Fallen tree

    Along the paths, in the clear waters of the lakes, you will notice lots of old trees that have simply fallen down after some strom or due to the old age.

    It is not the negligence why they are left there as it happens. It is the concept of natural park to leave everything to the natural processes of life circles and to restrict men's interventions to the widths of the walking paths only.

    Through the wood...

    Just kidding! There are no steep climbs. For most part, walking around means nice stroll through the wood or following the edge of lakes…

    On a more serious note, 80% of Plitvice Lakes NP is covered with forest. Not only does forest add to the charm of the lakes, but it's also an important biological prerequisite for survival of the lakes as we know them today. Forest protects against erosion and provides optimal balance of water in the ground. We, of course, knew all that as we always paid utmost attention during biology lessons, but how about you?
