Over a thousand years ago, super pure water that poured from the mountains into Plitvice eroded limestone rocks that surrounded the lake. Moss, algae and bacteria catalyzed the process that dissolved the limestone rocks into a porous stone, now referred to as travertine. This travertine was later deposited in the waters. Several limestone rocks are still being dissolved and deposited resulting to the formation of the various waterfalls at the park. As travertine continues to accumulate at the bottom of the lake, it results to barriers in between these lakes. These barriers continue to increase until they create waterfalls.
