jezero and Kozjak. The lakes aren't the only attraction of the national park, as there are over 1267 different plant species, 320 butterfly species, 20 bat species and 157 bird species and the overall beauty of the environment is astonishing. It
is a fascinating example of untouched nature. Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to Unesco World Heritage List in 1979 and has over 1 million visitors every year. Our taxi transfer service offers you reliable transfer from Split to National Park Plitvice Lakes.
There is a local legend that the lakes were created after a long drought. People prayed for water, and finally a Black Queen appeared and sent a big storm which caused so much rainfall that the water level grew enough to form the lakes.
