A few facts about the Plitvice Lakes
Inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list due to its outstanding and picturesque series of tufa lakes, caves, connected by waterfalls, the Plitvice Lakes are one of the oldest and largest national parks in Croatia.
The national park was founded in 1949 and is in the mountainous karstarea of central Croatia, at the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The name Plitvice was first mentioned in a written document in 1777 by Dominik Vukasović, the priestof from the town of Otočac. This name was designated due to natural phenomena that have created the lakes. Nature formed shallow basins (Croatianplitko means shallow), which have been filled with water.
The national park is world-famous for its sixteen lakesthat are arranged in beautiful cascades. For centuries, water has changed the limestone and thus the landscape of this area. The emerging travertine barriers decelerated and retained the flowing water over time and these dams are continuously growing.
These lakes are all interconnected and follow the water flow, separated by natural dams of travertine, deposited by the action of moss, algae, and bacteria. In 1493, not far away from the Plitvice Lakes, a decisive battle in Croatian history between the Austrian and Ottoman Empire took place. During the Battle of Krbava Field, nearly all of the entire Croatian nobility was killed. In 1871, the famous Croatian politician Eugen Kvaternik was killed north of the lakes in the town of Rakovica, during the famous Croatian uprising against Austrian-Hungarian predominance, marking the long and difficult struggle for Croatia’s independence. During the Croatian War of Independence in the 1990s, the first Croatian soldier was killed in this area, in what is known in Croatia as Bloody Easter.

Over time, as the Romans conquered the province, Split became home to the Diocletian's Palace, built for the Roman emperor Diocletian in AD 305.

The city is most famous for its Diocletian’s Palace, the old city centre. There you can see the St Duje’s Cathedral on the Peristil, which was at first a mausoleum for emperor Diocletian. The church is combination of ancient Roman architecture and early Christian architecture. From its bell tower, you’ll have a great view of the whole city and the Diocletian’s Palace. Opposite the cathedral, you’ll find the old Jupiter’s Temple, now St Johns church, in front of which stands an original Egyptian sphinx, the other being on the Peristil, both of which emperor Diocletian brought here from Egypt. The Peristil itself, the heart of the Palace, is an excellent example of old Roman architecture, around which later Medieval and Christian structures were constructed. Many cultural events take place on the Peristil during the Split Summer Festival, where plays and operas are performed under the night sky. The Riva is the main city promenade along the seashore, where the bulk of the cafés are located and where people like to stroll and meet with friends in the evenings.
