Behold the natural beauty of Plitvice National Park.  Called the Most Popular Tourist Attraction in Croatia, it spans 300 square kilometers, is made up of sixteen lakes, and accommodates waterfalls and wildlife galore.  It's also served as a war front.
in March 1991 it became the scene of the Plitvice Lakes incident - the first armed confrontation of the Croatian War of Independence that resulted in fatalities. The park was held by forces of the Republic of Serbian Krajina during the conflict and suffered some damage in the process, with hotels and other facilities being used as barracks.

Head over to Twisted Sifter and learn more about this awesome park.
