Plitvicka Jeera - Karlobag

Reported by Devashishu Torpy 50.0 km

Our Peace Run in Croatia begins in the spectacular National Park: Plitvicka Jeera

Waterfalls everywhere

A boat ride across the lake and through the mist

The National Park is a Sri Chinmoy Peace Blossom

Our two guides for the morning hold the torch.

Schoolchildren from Korenica greet us on the road

And run with us to their school

This girl sang most beautifully

A traditional dance

Our next appointment is at Dr Jure Turica school near Gospic

"I can see clearly now, the rain has gone; its going to be a bright, BRIGHT, sunshine day"

The principal, Ivica Radosevic, and the Deputy Mayor, Kristina Prsa hold the torch together

Everyone runs together

Back to school for the Peace Runners!

The local priest, Mario Vazgec, greets us outside his church

The church was brightly coloured inside - very uplifting

Next we visit the birthplace of Nikola Tesla

He is one of the greatest pioneers in Science and an extraordinary inventor

He would have visions and see the way forward very clearly in his mind

The Tesla Coil

Sandra and Florbela run into the sun

Anita enjoys her first ever Peace Run

The Croatian coastline
