Its 96 waterfalls and 16 lakes on the Korana River, numerous creeks, and vast forests have made the area a marvellous natural monument.
The area was declared a national park in 1949 and has been a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site since 1979.
It is possible to tour the park on foot, following the hiking trails and wooden bridges. Alternatively, you can use the tourist train and/or a ship across the largest lake Kozjak. Over a million people from all over the world visits the park every year.
