The Plitvice Lakes are located in the national park of the same name in central Croatia, close to the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina, connected to the Adriatic coast by highway. The sixteen lakes are spread out across a five-mile decline from north to south, with all the lakes connected by waterfalls and tributaries amongst a backdrop of stark karst and beautiful foliage. One of the most popular sights in Croatia, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasting over 1.5 million visitors in 2018 alone. The town closest to the lakes is called Plitvicka Jezera (which translates to Plitvice Lakes); nearby towns to the north include Rakovica, Grabovac, Smoljanac, and Poljanak, while towns to the south include Jezerce, Rudanovac, Vrelo Korenicko, Vranovaca, and Korenica.
