Plitviče Lakes National Park offers a window into what heaven must be like complete with waterfalls, animals, clean air and endless natural beauty.  We spent all day wondering around the trails watching various birds, turtles and colorful fish swimming in clear water.

The valley that we followed had waterfall after waterfall after waterfall in all shapes and sizes.  It was just incredible.  In Crotatia we also went swimming in the Adriatic Sea.  The water was clear but cold.
