1. Plitvice Waterfalls

Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia is the home of some of the most beautiful waterfalls on the planet, with 16 cascading lakes in crystal-clear shades of emerald and turquoise. Water flowing over the limestone and chalk over thousands of years have created the barriers, resulting in natural dams that form incredibly stunning waterfalls as well as rivers and caves.
