Some locals joke that all of Croatia is the eighth wonder of the world, and the truth is that Croatia has indeed been blessed with some of the most amazing natural wonders. Almost all places are connected with water, which is ideal for those who originally planned to spend their holidays on the water, especially during the warm and hot season.
7 water wonders of nature in Croatia
World famous Plitvice Lakes National Park, located in the central part of the country, has 16 cascading lakes and is a World Heritage Site UNESCOas well as one of the oldest national parks in Southeast Europe.
The lakes are known for their distinctive colors ranging from azure to green, gray or blue. The colors constantly change depending on the amount of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of the incident sunlight. The waters of the Koran River, flowing through limestone, have created barriers over thousands of years, forming natural dams, which in turn have created a number of picturesque karst lakes, 140 waterfalls, 20 caves and unique beech and coniferous forests.

The cape is protected as a geomorphological phenomenon and extends in relation to the channel Hvar, reservoir in Adriatic Sea between islands Brach and Hvar, which is a place with strong currents.
