Croatia is already a popular destination for summer holidays – but these stunning pictures of frozen waterfalls may just tempt you to a winter visit.

Situated between the coast and the capital, Zagreb, Plitvice Lakes national park is on the wishlist for many warm weather visitors.

A UNESCO world heritage site since 1979, it is made up of 16 interlinked lakes surrounded by forest.

A visit in the summer is likely to find it busy with travellers, but photographer Tamas Toth found things far more peaceful on his winter visit from Budapest.

Hiking the area with two friends, he captured beautiful pictures of the winter wonderland…
