Real life Rivendell – Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

Croatia offers an unique combination of everything – vast rank and green valleys, miles and miles of untouched forest, clear water springs and creeks, high mountain chains, crystal clear turquoise sea, 1244 inhabited and uninhabited islands, amazing history and incredible architecture, delicious food and tasty wines, rich culture and unique folklore. A region of Lika has Croatia’s highest concentration of national and natural parks.

The most iconic of all is Plitvice Lakes National Park, that captivates visitors with its wild beauty, 16 shimmering lakes and 129 bird species, placing it firmly  on the must see list for any nature enthusiast. It is also one of the oldest national parks in Southeast Europe, the largest national park in Croatia, and in my humble opinion, one of the most magical and surreal places on planet Earth. First time I went there I thought I wondered into the Imladris Valley – Elvish city of Rivendell from the movie franchise The Lord of the Rings.

Hello! My name is Lydia - but you can call me Cro! I am a 20-something small-town and small-country girl holding a Croatian passport, but currently living in megalithic Sao Paulo, Brazil. My travelling spree started pretty early with my crazy-for-adventure family, but my solo travel era began after moving to Brazil and exploring the whole South American continent. Currently studying on Ph.D Programme in International Relations, Campinas, Sao Paulo, Brasil. Starting to work as a field researcher with Unicef, I am definitely planning to travel some more (read: so much more), so, you're welcome to join me on:! I'll be glad to share it all with you! Stay tuned!
