The Waterfalls of Plitvice

At the moment there are sixteen lakes visible at the surface in Plitvice , but the number changes due to natural conditions. The unique feature of these lakes though are natural dams, called travertines, which are build by a combination of bacteria, algae and moss. They are very sensitive to outside conditions and grow up to one centimeter per year. The lakes are known for their distinctive colours, from azure to green, grey or sometimes blue depending on the light and also on the organisms living inside. But most famous of course are the countless waterfalls, which bind the different lakes together and hereby create a unique natural landscape.

Nature of Plitvice

If you think about paradise, the national park of Plitvice in central Croatia comes pretty close to it. A marvelous place of nature it encompasses 296,85 square kilometers of pure wild. The forests seem to be endless and the gentle hills make for some beautiful curves in the panorama. Here and there you find a castles or a water mill, or a trail leading to a lake with some stunning waterfalls.

Travelling Bosnia

This one is the last and final part of my series’ about travelling the country of Bosnia i Hercegovina in the heart of the Balkans. It is an interesting and still conflicted country, the remnants of the wars can still be seen and Bosnia remains divided. At the same time it is an immensely beautiful country with a stunning nature and rich history full of helpful and friendly people. And it is (as for now) a relatively cheap travel destination, very much recommandable to backpackers. The pictures below were shot in Mostar and Sarajevo.

The Adria

In 2018 I was fortunate enough to travel to the Adriatic Sea (shortened: Adria) a couple of times, both privately and professionally. A large part of the eastern coast of the sea belongs to the State of Croatia. A country which used to be an insider tip for travellers for many years. Today Croatia is visited by Millions of people from around the world. Many of them go to Dubrvonik, which is famous for being the real life version of Kings Landing. But still there are many hidden beaches and islands in Croatia where you can find time for yourself. Get sure to stay until break of dawn so you can see the sun descending into the Adriatic sea.
