Okay, this has got to be one of the most breathtaking fall views you’ll ever see: we’re talking about the Plitvice Lakes Park in Croatia, or as the locals call it: Plitvička jezera (it’s cool if you don’t know how to pronounce it).

The Plitvice Lakes National Park was announced as Croatia’s very first national park back in 1949, and as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1979. And once you see it, you’ll understand that it lives up to its status!

The amazing natural scenery of the park is beautiful all year long, but as it switches to its fall look, it is utterly stunning. Visiting the park, you’ll get to walk between the trees, look at the colorful leaves, and absorb the beauty of the lakes and waterfalls. Perfect relaxation and gorgeous Instagram pics are guaranteed.

For those interested in a full, immersive experience, the park also offers a bed and breakfast option, allowing you to really soak up the area’s beauty and serenity with no pressure.

Ticket prices vary according to duration of visit, and are free for children under the age of seven and for people with disabilities.
