Presentation of Plitvička jezera

The municipality of Plitvička jezera (4,668 inhabitants in 2001) is located 40 km north of Gospić, on the main state road from Zagreb towards the coast (Split), although the new highway built in the last years goes around. Namely, the larger part of the municipality is the extremely interesting Plitvice Lakes National Park. It is hardly surprising that tourism is the main source of income.
The seat of administration is the town of Korenica (1,570 inh.), which was since the 1970s named Titova Korenica; the attribute in the name was officially removed only in 1997, although in practice already in 1990, both by the rebel Serb regime that held the town until 1995, and by the Croatian government.
