Plitvice Lakes National Park

I wanted to visit the Plitvice Lakes National Park because some of the Karl May stories were filmed here like Der Schatz im Silbersee (1962, English title: Treasure of Silver Lake). This place was the most stunning place we have seen on our trip so far. So, if you ever have a chance to come here, go ahead and visit this play of nature. Here is a taste of what we saw and heard. Enjoy...

Ladybugs lost a lot of their charm, when they harassed us with herds of hundreds!!!

Skippy collecting nuts.
Ulpu pulling as always.

In the end, girls found a friend and follower ;)

  1. If you have some time, visit the Krka falls as well. You will like them!

  2. And if you would like to have a day off from your bikes: you can book a nice boat trip from Primosten to the Krka falls and back to Primosten, which takes one day with some hours stop at the Krka falls.

    1. Thanks a lot for the hints - unfortunately we already went on and passed by Krka.
