Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

When a body of water is inland, not part of an ocean, deeper than a pond and fed by a river, it is classified as a lake. It is often found in basins or along mature rivers. They’re some of the most beautiful nature-made landmarks on earth. Some are large lakes but some are simply amazing.

Whether dotted with mineral accumulations, cascading down mountains or home to a rare breed of flamingo, each of these 10 lakes are definitely worth veering off course for.

Here I have compiled some of the amazing lakes in the world.
