Given the size of Croatia, the landscape is considerably diverse and made up of fertile and mostly flat plains in the north, and low mountains and highlands along the coast.
The Dinaric Alps and a few smaller mountain ranges (Velebit and Velika Kapela) slice through the country, with the highest point rising to 6,005 ft. (1,831m).
Along the Dalmatian coast, as well as on most of Croatia's offshore islands, the land is hilly, rocky and steep.
Natural water sources are numerous, and the country's biggest lake, Lake Vrana, extends over 12 sq. miles (30 sq. km).
However, the Plitvice lakes are the most famous, and are composed of a group of 16 different small lakes connected by waterfalls.
