Croatia 1994. Plitvice National Park.

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. 
  • Croatia 1994. Plitvice National Park with waterfalls and lakes. 

Unfortunately Croatian stamps covering this subject are more than sparse, as Croatian fauna has only been featured on a very small number of stamps -- and none of them describing rare species.
