HR98 - Plitvice Lakes National Park (1979)

Brief Description

"The waters flowing over the limestone and chalk have, over thousands of years, deposited travertine barriers, creating natural dams which in turn have created a series of beautiful lakes, caves and waterfalls. These geological processes continue today. The forests in the park are home to bears, wolves and many rare bird species."

布里特威斯湖国家公园

"数千年来流经石灰石和白垩上的水,逐渐沉积为石灰华屏障,构成一道道天然堤坝,这些堤坝又形成了一个个美丽的湖泊、洞穴和瀑布。这种地质作用至今仍在继续进行。公园里的森林是熊、狼和许多稀有鸟类的家园。"
