I’ve wanted to visit Croatia ever since I saw the PBS special Land of Falling Lakes about Plitvice Lakes National Park. I could barely believe such a majestic landscape actually existed. Sixteen bright turquoise lakes are nestled in woodland-covered mountains, and are connected by waterfalls, caverns and bubbling streams. Plitvice Lakes was named a UNESCO world heritage site in 1979 for its “outstanding natural beauty.”
The documentary takes you through the seasons of the park, teaches you about the land’s unique ecology and introduces you to many of its animal residents. With fascinating explanations of animals and the landscape of the region, this documentary will appeal to all ages.
