NATURE: LAND OF THE FALLING LAKES

A 'DEVIL'S GARDEN' REVEALS AN ENCHANTED WATER WORLD IN CROATIA'S PLITVICE FOREST, WHEN THIRTEEN/WNET'S NATURE PREMIERES LAND OF THE FALLING LAKES, APRIL 18 ON PBS

 



Nestled in a cluster of lush mountains is a mysterious ancient forest known
as the "Devil's Garden," where the olm, edible dormouse, capercaillie and
diced snake live together in an enchanted world of thunderous waterfalls,
cascading lakes and subterranean caverns. Not long ago, mankind nearly
destroyed this land with warfare. But nature has found an ingenious way to
rejuvenate the Garden, almost as if by miracle.

Could this be a sequel to Lord of the Rings?

No, it is Plitvice Lakes National Park and World Heritage Site, the oldest
national park in Europe, located in Croatia's Dinaric Mountains. Enter this
secret fairyland when Thirteen/WNET New York's Emmy and Peabody
Award-winning NATURE series premieres Land of the Falling Lakes, Sunday,
April 18 at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings).
