Plitvice Lakes National Park is located in Central Croatia. It was enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. For thousands of years, water has flown over limestone and chalk creating natural dams and reservoirs which are now linked by many waterfalls. The largest waterfall is called Veliki Slap which translates as ‘Great Waterfall’ and is 79 meters high.
During COVID lockdown, we called Ivan, the Director of Hotel Degenija, one of the most popular in the Plitvice area. The hotel has been reopened for two weeks. Croatia at this point has almost eradicated the virus but eagerly awaits tourists to be allowed to visit.
