Teal. That is the way to describe the colour of the water at Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia.
As one gazes down from the walkways and follows the meandering path through the park… the colour of the water is just amazing. The scientific reason is that moss and algae are reacting with the rock to create a porous rock called travertine. As the travertine coats the lakes’ floor in a white mineral “dust” it then creates a base which reflects the sunlight and the sky. All this results in some really wonderful colours!
