The geographic position of the Plitvice Lakes and the specific climate features contributed to the emergence of many natural phenomena and a rich biodiversity within this area. Despite the vicinity to the Mediterranean, a moderate mountainous climate prevails due to the Velebit mountain range, which acts as a climatic separator between the coastal and continental region. For centuries, legends have been created about these mythical lakes, rivers and waterfalls. According to one legend, inhabitants of the region were craving water and called upon the magic queen to help them, which she did by creating the Plitvice lakes. The availability of water has a great impact on the biodiversity of this area. The forested mountain slopes serve as water reservoirs and as a refuge for many animal species. The wider area of the national park is one of the last areas in Europe where wolves and brown bears can be found. About 50 species of mammals and 321 different species of butterflies live in this region. Explore the hidden pathways of Plitvice.
