Plitvice
The natural phenomenon that are the Lakes of Plitvice owes its existence to another rare natural occurence: the "sedra barriers". Forming of sedra, a natural calzium-based material, requires an optimal balance of several factors, such as temperature of both air and water, sufficiently clean spring waters or small rivers, density of plant growth and also a quiet and tranquil surrounding. The delicate balance required makes the sedra barriers (and thus created waterfalls and lakes) an extremly rare occurrence, found only in a few places on Earth. Lakes of Plitvice are, without a doubt, the most beautiful example and therefore under the supervision and protection of UNESCO. Although this national park is mostly visited in the summer, the colours of autumn and the motives of frosen waterfalls in the winter are more interesting to a photographer's eye. However, during the winter, passage is difficult due to snow, and some parts of the park are completly inaccessible.
