A conceptual hydrogeological model of the Plitvice Lakes was the result of complex research in the framework of international cooperation. The mail institutions were the University of Zagreb and the Joanneum Research Institute in Graz.
The research identified completely new data about the genesis of the water system, the hydrogeological characteristics of the karst water catchment, the dynamics of the water, locations of water loss, the “hanging” position of Lake Kozjak concerning groundwater…
Throughout the project were made 3022 measurements of different physicochemical parameters, 7885 of the chemical analysis of water, and 1082 analysis of stable isotopes.
There is a legend about the Black Queen (probably in several versions) that tells of a great drought in ancient times due to which the people began to die cattle, crops decay, and they also rotted. And so the people fell to their knees, all miserable, and began to beg the Black Queen for help, to give them rain.
And behold the miracles, the Black Queen appeared before her people, sad that she had to suffer and summoned the clouds and the rain that had been falling for days, until she filled the lakes with water. The story goes that the Queen cried. The tears shed from her right eye were black and created the Black River, and the white tears created the White River.
When the fear of the flood appeared, the people again called on the Black Queen for help. And the Black Queen appeared, the rain calmed down, the water stopped flowing.
“You are hardworking and good people. Preserve your shady groves, fertile valleys, and these beautiful lakes with lovely and silver streams flowing around.

Then your shady groves and beautiful valleys will not be neglected; then gentlemen from all over the world will come to visit your beautiful Plitvice Lakes. ”
Legends may not explain the formation of natural phenomena and the deposition of carbonates. But they stimulate the imagination and give stories about natural beauties a special charm.
More than 1,200 plant species have been recorded in the park. There are many animals there. And while you’ll most often encounter insects, birds, and fish, the occasional lizard or snake, many of them will be out of sight.
Bears, wolves, and lynxes should be mentioned as the three largest mammals. And while the teddy bear will stray into the surrounding villages and remote parts of the park, the rest of the team is hard to see.
So far, 321 species of butterflies and 168 species of birds have been recorded on Plitvice Lakes. There is also a chance that you will meet one of the endangered animals from the beast family: a bear, a wolf, a lynx, or an otter. The richness of the animal world on Plitvice will be perhaps most interesting to children visitors. So take them to this fairytale forest.
