The Plitvicka area is one of Croatia's biggest tourist attractions.
Humans have inhabited the area for 1000's of years. Wouldn't is have been wonderful to have discovered this lush Shangri-la for yourself?
The first hotel was built there in the late 19th century and the Plitvicka Lakes have become a major tourist attraction. Around 1950 Yugoslavia nationalized the lakes and made them a national park.
