Plitvice National Park in Croatia - a walk in the woods
My words wouldn't do justice to this beautiful place. As Rick Steves says in his Eastern Europe guidebook, "Plitvice is one of Europe's most spectacular natural wonders. Imagine Niagara Falls diced and sprinkled over a heavily forested Grand Canyon. There's nothing like this lush valley of 16 terraced lakes, laced together by waterfalls, boat rides, and miles of pleasant plant walks. Countless cascades and water that's both strangely clear and full of vibrant colors make this park a misty natural wonderland."
