VIDEO: The Mrežnica River in autumn
Mrežnica is one of the most beautiful Croatian Rivers. It is famous for its tufa barriers that create waterfalls and slow, almost marsh parts in between. In autumn, it is magical. See the video:
Mrežnica is a true gem of the Croatian rivers. Everybody know world-famous Plitvice Lakes. Try to stretch the lakes to almost 70 kilometers long river and get roughly a hundred waterfalls. Truth to be told, they are not so tall, but there are many of them. Terrace cascades are very common. The Mrežnica river get its name from the Croatian word for a net (mreža), as these waterfalls gives a regular net pattern.
Mrežnica in summer is a fantasy – you ca swim, paddle, dive, go fishing…whatever you can imagine. But, when the summer is gone, October offers some fantastical colors
Due to the many maples, Mrežnica gets reddish and yellow. Beeches are mostly brown-red, while ash and alder that grow in the first row are duller.
