Ogni angolo del Parco di Plitvice č un festival di verde, in tutte le sue tonalitą e sfumature.

Altre due foto nel WS

Il Parco nazionale dei laghi di Plitvice si trova in Croazia, nel complesso montuoso di Lička Plješivica, in un territorio di fitte foreste, ricco di corsi d'acqua, laghi e cascate.
Il Parco nazionale dei laghi di Plitvice dal 1979 fa parte della lista dei Patrimoni dell'umanitą dell'UNESCO
Il parco occupa una superficie di 33.000 ettari e comprende 16 laghi in successione, collegati fra loro da cascate. All'interno del parco si trovano anche numerose grotte di cui solo una piccola parte č agibile. I boschi del parco sono popolati da 157 specie di uccelli, 50 specie di mammiferi, 20 tipi di pipistrelli, 321 specie di farfalle (76 diurne e 245 notturne) e altri animali, fra i quali l'orso bruno, il cinghiale, il lupo, la lince ed il capriolo.
I laghi sono formati da due fiumi: il Fiume Bianco ed il Fiume Nero, che confluiscono nel fiume Korana. Le acque di questi fiumi sono ricche di sali calcarei (in massima parte carbonato di calcio e carbonato di magnesio), provenienti dalla dissoluzione delle rocce carbonatiche costiutenti la struttura geologica del sito.
Questi sali vengono fatti precipitare dalla vegetazione, formando cosģ degli strati di travertino, una roccia sedimentaria recente. Col passare del tempo, questi depositi formano delle vere e proprie dighe naturali che fungono da sbarramenti per l'acqua, crescendo di circa un centimetro ogni anno. Ad un certo punto la pressione dell'acqua rompe questi argini naturali, aprendosi nel terreno nuovi percorsi.
Questo meccanismo, in realtą comune a tutte le acque calcaree, a Plitvice ha assunto una particolare importanza.
Il parco č visitabile grazie a una rete ben segnata di sentieri e a 18 km di passerelle.
E' possibile spostarsi anche in bici, con la barca o con un trenino.

All the environment of the Plitvice lakes is a carousel of green color, in all its shades and tones.

Other two photos in WS

Plitvice Lakes National Park is situated in Croatia.
The protected area extends over 296.85 square kilometres (73,350 acres). In 1979, Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage register among the first natural sites worldwide.
Every year, more than 1,200,000 visitors are recorded. Entrance is subject to charges. Strict regulations apply.
The national park is world famous for its lakes arranged in cascades. Currently, 16 lakes can be seen from the surface. These lakes are a result of the confluence of several small rivers and subterranean karst rivers. The lakes are all interconnected and follow the water flow. They are separated by natural dams of travertine, which is deposited by the action of moss, algae, and bacteria. The particularly sensitive travertine barriers are the result of an interplay between water, air and plants. The encrusted plants and bacteria accumulate on top of each other, forming travertine barriers which grow at the rate of about 1 cm per year.
The sixteen lakes are separated into an upper and lower cluster formed by runoff from the mountains, descending from an altitude of 636 to 503 m (2,087 to 1,650 ft) over a distance of some eight km, aligned in a south-north direction. The lakes collectively cover an area of about two square kilometers, with the water exiting from the lowest lake forming the Korana River.
The lakes are renowned for their distinctive colors, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue. The colors change constantly depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of sunlight.
Through different climatic influences and the large difference in elevation within the protected area, a multifaceted flora and fauna has been created. The national park area is home to many endemic species. Those species that prevailed at the lakes before the arrival of man still exist.

Hi Vanda,
A peaceful land, where I could sit down and listen to the waterfall for hours... Beautiful greenish tones, spectacular composition, marvellous depth. Truly an image to be proud of. Hopefully I can visit this place in the future.
