Dr. Branko Glusac | Cosmetic Surgeon, Makarska, Croatia Profile Details

My philosophy regarding cosmetic surgery is achieving a natural-looking change in harmony with the patient's features. Each patient that comes to my office is examined in a courteous and professional manner, with great attention being paid to details. To achieve beautiful and natural-looking results, the doctor must be both a skilled surgeon and an artist withan essential understanding of beauty, harmony and balance.

Plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery should be taken seriously. We therefore recommend you to consider each fact and to obtain all the answers to the questions of your interest before making the final decision. And the best way to do so is to talk to a specialist.

Dr.Glusac's goal is to provide comprehensive plastic and cometic surgical services of the highest standards to all of his patients. It is his ongoing commitment to provide an environment of comfort and safety, and to treat each patient with respect, dignity and compassion.

Dr. Branko Glusac | Cosmetic Surgeon Treatments Offered


What gives us advantage over other clinics:

  • My consultation with a patient lasts for 60-90 minutes, in the course of which we do endoscope examination (fiberendoscopy) of the nasal interior to enable my patients to breathe even better after the cosmetic and functional procedure. The very first postulate of cosmetic surgery in my opinion is the function and not just aesthetics.
  • A tampon is inserted into the nostrils for only a few hours, while elsewhere you have it for 3-4 days; a plastic cast is placed on the nose for only 3 days (elsewhere it is worn for 8 days)
  • We operate PAINLESSLY, with no swelling or bruises, so you can go home in 30 minutes
  • The hump is completely removed and shown to the patient. Other surgeons chisel the hump thus creating multiple smaller humps within 30 days
  • All the procedures are done with a CLOSED technique (from the inside), leaving no visible stitches (they are self-absorbed) as well as no visible scars.
  • We operate on your nose JUST ONCE, there is no re-operating. REMEMBER – it is vital that the nose is correctly operated the first time procedure is performed
  • I was given a nick-name “THE KING OF NOSES” due to a special way of RESHAPING noses, which requires an extraordinary feeling for cartilage and soft tissues. You have to be constantly aware that nose is a functional and immunological organ with over 10 functions.

5 tips for those considering a nose surgery

1. First, beware those who say it is a simple operation ("It's just a small hump and can be easily fixed!"). The hump must be completely removed and shown to the patient; it must not be chiseled for that will create more smaller humps instead of a large one.
2. It is of utmost importance for the operation to be performed from the INSIDE, with an inner incision i.e. a CLOSED TECHNIQUE. If the open technique is used, the swelling of the nose can last for one to three years.
3. Make sure you ask your surgeon about his qualifications and training, for many years of experience acquired in only one hospital mean nothing if dated surgical techniques were used.
4. Ask your surgeon to eliminate potential breathing problems while performing the cosmetic operation, since 90% of cosmetic operations require correction of the deviated septum.
5. Do see at least three surgeons before agreeing to have a nose operation done. Ask the surgeons all you'd like to know, because there are no "silly" questions. Do not rely on the computer animated image, for the computer will not be operating on you!

A nasal cosmetic surgeon should reshape the nose with minimal surgical trauma, i.e. use an internal approach to obtain a natural shape of the nose, in perfect harmony with facial features, thus giving a face a natural and youthful look.

We must stress that there is no nasal correction i.e. cosmetic operation without simultaneous performance of a FUNCTIONAL OPERATION. It means that the first postulate of cosmetic operations is function and not aesthetics. A nose is a pyramid inside of which a deviated septum must be straightened i.e. corrected in order to enable the patient to breathe properly. More than 15% of the population does not breathe properly through the nose, but use the mouth to assist the breathing (snoring, dry mouth, fatigue). Only after the problem of sinuses has been solved, i.e. a breathing disorder, cosmetic operation of the nose can be performed.

Our clinic is one of the few in the world that can perform simultaneous cosmetic and functional nose surgery. When choosing a cosmetic surgeon, make sure you check whether he/she is certified for performing nasal surgery i.e. are they a certified Ear, Nose, and Throat Surgeon (an otolaryngologist/rhino surgeon) as well as which clinic they were educated and trained at.

It is of utmost importance to perform both operations (cosmetic and functional) in one procedure, since you may have even worse breathing problems than prior to the operation What gives our patients additional confidence is the fact that Dr.Glusac is both a certified  member of the European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery as well as a certified Rhino (Otolaryngology) Surgeon.

Cosmetic and functional nasal surgery is done on patients above 16 under local anesthesia. After the operation, patient's breathing is assisted by special tubes, which recently was not feasible even in large clinical centers. Following the procedure, a patient wears a special plastic cast for only 4 days. The procedure does not cause swelling and/or bruising, due to minimally invasive surgical approach in reshaping the nose.

Nasal surgical procedures include:

a ) correction of fractured/deviated septum enabling normal breathing through the nose
b) cosmetic operations: humped nose / asymmetrical nose, misshapen /broken nose, wide and/or depressed nose, as well as imperfections of the nasal tip
c) closing septal perforations with a special method, which is the most demanding operation in nasal surgery.

Who are suitable candidates for plastic surgery of the nose?
These are the people looking to improve their facial appearance. If you're physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in your expectations you may be a good candidate. Rhinoplasty is also indicated for correction of deformities following a trauma (nasal fracture) or a disease, for correction of asymmetry and for an improvement of the nasal airway.

Areas of Concern: Large Nose Crooked-Nose Nasal Hump-Poor Tip Definition Broken-Nose (Breathing Problems)-Nose Reduction
Candidates: Ages 15 to 70
Length of Procedure: 1 to 2 hours
Anesthesia: Local with sedation, or general anesthesia
Recovery: Takes 6 to 7 days

Protruding ears can be corrected by reshaping and resetting them to a normal position. It is recommended that protruding ears are repaired by the age of 5 or 6, by which time the ears have almost reached complete development. After a complete ear examination by our medical ear expert, surgical options can be discussed between Dr.Glusac and the patient, according to patient's wishes.

Special  Techniques
Ear surgery (Otoplasty) can be performed under local anesthesia in adults, but requires sedation in children. The incision lies at the back of the ear, in order to avoid scar detection. Ear surgery usually takes about one to two hours.

Owing to dr. Glusac's special technique, there is no need for suture removal, which both parents and children appreciate. Moreover, this technique does not leave any scars. With dr. Glusac's special technique a headband is mandatory for ONLY ONE DAY, while with the usual techniques the headband is mandatory for one week.

Note: Otoplasty can enhance your self - confidence. Realistic expectations are an important factor of being happy with the outcome of any surgery. As each patient is an individual, different results can be expected in each patient.

If your look tired, angry and older than you actually are, an eyelift might help you change that. Eyelifts are among the most commonly requested surgical procedures in both men and women. Upper lid droopiness tends to make someone look both tired and a bit cross, while lower lid bagging tends to make a person look older. Eyelift can make you look younger, fresher, more interested and alert. Eyelid surgery can remove the excess fat, muscle and drooping skin of the upper eyelids and minimize bags under the eyes and lower eyelid skin. The upper lid incision falls into the natural crease above the eye.

The incision of the lower lid is just under the eyelashes, although sometimes it can be made on the inside of the eyelid (Tranconjunctival approach). Eyelid surgery requires a very short recovery time, sometimes only a few days or a long weekend. Dr. Glusac often combines eyelid surgery with a facelift, as well as other facial rejuvenation procedures.

Areas of Concern: Upper eyelids: puffiness-tired look - lower eyelids puffy (bags), dark circles - sagging upper and lower eyelid skin
Candidates: Ages 25 to 75
Length of Procedure: 1 to 2 hours
Anesthesia: Local with sedation
Recovery: Takes 6 to 7 days
Tips: Acool compress is suggested for the first 24 hours. Sutures will be removed 4 to 5 days after surgery. you can begin using make-uo to conceal discoloration after one week.

In case you were born with THIN lips, or if aging has flattened your lips, you can do something about it. There are several lip augmentation procedures available today to enhance the size and shape of your lips. All involve inserting a synthetic, biocomopatible material (Restylane, Esthelis).
You can even use tissue from your own body. Lip augmentation is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Recovery takes about 2-3 days, after which your lips will feel normal and look marvelous.

FACELIFT (Rhytidectomy)
A facelift can make you look younger and fresher, and it may enhance your self-confidence in the process.

Over time, the long-term effects of gravity, exposure to sun, dry air, and general stress takes its toll on an individual's face and neckline. Jowls can develop under the jaw line with folds and fat deposits. Sometimes creases begin to form between the nose and the mouth.

A Facelift can considerably reduce these signs of aging by removal of excess fat, tightening the underlying muscles, and redraping the skin around the neck and face. Facelifts can be done alone, or are frequently performed in conjunction with another procedure such as a browlift, eyelid surgery or nose reshaping. If your problem areas are limited to the neck, a more conservative procedure, known as a "neck lift" will be recommended. In some cases, a facelift can reduce the outward signs of aging by ten or fifteen years.

Recovery: Takes 3 to 5 days

What is Minilift?
A minilift is a procedure performed in the doctor's office that lifts the cheeks, lower eyelids and jowls and restores the natural curves and fullness in the cheeks and the face. It's much less invasive than a facelift and is suitable for patients with minimal looseness and sagging.

Candidates: Ages 35 to 75
Areas of Concern: Sagging face, Neck, Cheeks
Length of Procedure: 1 to 2 hours
Anesthesia: Local with sedation or general
Recovery: Back to work in 7 to 10 days
Patients go home the same day. There are no visible scars.

Indications: Usually men and women over forty, but even people in their thirties can improve their appearance by these procedures. The procedure involves tightening and elevating of sagging tissues of the face and neck volumetric rejuvenation, with complete restoration of soft tissue. Lifting should be done in combination with eyelid surgery, forehead lifting, liposculpture or surface peel by dermabrasion, laser or chemical. The main aim of the procedure is to make face firmer and younger. The incisions are made within the hairline, just in front of the ear and wrap around the back of the ear. The skin of the face and neck is separated, the excess skin is removed with previous tightening of muscular tissues to achieve long-lasting effect. Liposuction is sometimes required to remove fatty deposits from jowlsand neck in order to define them better.

Depressions on the face or body can be corrected with one's own fat. Lips can also be pumped with fat. Nowadays is autologus fat (adipose tissue) transfer a number one filling agent for wrinkles and creases on our faces. This procedure can be done alone or in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures like face lifting or eyelid surgery to treat wrinkles. Since it is the patient's own fat there is no risk of rejection and no possibility of allergies.

The  Procedure: This operation is done under local anesthesia during which a very tiny incision is made in the donor site, usually the abdomen. The fat is then centrifuged and reinjected via fine needle cannulas. No sutures are needed.

Post Operatory
The patient leaves after the procedure is done. We always place some ice over the treated areas so there is the least swelling possible. You can expect swelling for the first 48 hours. However, they are very easy to cover up with makeup.


Dermabrasion helps to improve the look of scarred skin or skin damaged by the sun. It is frequently used to treat acne scars or to erase fine, facial wrinkles for a more youthful look.

Dr.Glusac uses dermabrasion most often for the treatment of perioral wrinkles (around the mouth) and for the treatment of acne scars. Recovery is often quicker and less painful than laser treatment of similar problems.

The results are excellent. Dermabrasion can be performed in the doctor’s office, under local anesthesia with sedation. The procedure usually takes less than an hour and can be done in conjunction with other procedures.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth in order to smoothen crow's feet, frown and worry lines, as well as the lines on the neck.
Made from a purified protein, botox injections block nerve impulses, weakening muscles so as to relax wrinkles and thus give the face a rejuvenated look.
BOTOX® may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.

BREAST ENLARGEMENT (Augmentation Mammoplasty)
For a woman who feels her breast are too small or not the right shape, surgical breast enhancement can be the answer. Breast enhancement procedure achieves the optimal breast size and shape, while improving the overall body contour. Patients usually decide to have the breast enhancement surgery for personal reasons, such as to increase the breast size or to regain the pre-pregnancy shape that the breasts lost during breast-feeding.

Once you have decided to undergo breast enlargement, Dr.Glusac will explain the entire procedure to you. You can tell him all your expectations and needn’t hesitate to ask any questions. There should be no mystery about the procedure. By the time you are ready for the surgery, you should be as familiar with the procedure as possible.

The Best Candidates For Breast Augmentation
These are the people looking for an improvement and not perfection in the way they look. If you are physically healthy and realistic about your expectations, you are likely to be a good candidate.

Types Of Implants
A breast implant is a silicone shell filled with either silicone gel or a salt-water solution known as saline. Dr.Glusac uses safe, FDA-approved saline implants of various textures and shapes for beautiful contour and natural, comfortable results.

The Operation
The operation involves insertion of saline implants through an incision under the breast, around the areola (pigmented skin) surrounding the nipple, or in the armpit. The breast implant may be placed above or below the muscle. It is usually performed under general anesthesia in the operation room.

Post—Operative Care
A special bra is worn for two weeks following the surgery. After its removal, the patient needs to massage the breasts regularly.

Patients may return to non-strenuous work after a few days. Stitches do not need to be removed, since they will dissolve on their own in ten to fourteen days. Taking a shower is permitted in three to seven days following the surgery.
Candidates: Ages 18 to 70
Length of Procedure: 1 to 2 hours
Anesthesia: Local with sedation or general anesthesia
Recovery: Back to work in 2-3 days. Patients go home the same day and there are no visible scars.
Results: A vast majority of patients are extremely pleased with the results. They look better and feel more confident.

After a considerable weight loss by dieting as well as after pregnancy, breasts tend to sag and they often shrink in size. The breast lift surgery helps to recontour the breasts and lift the nipples. In some cases breast implants are also necessary in order to restore the original breast volume.

Once you have decided to have a breast lift, Dr.Glusac will explain the entire procedure to you. You can tell him all your expectations and needn’t hesitate to ask any questions. A mammogram (breast X-rays) and a routine breast exam are required before the surgery.
Surgical Procedure: There are numerous surgical techniques, depending on the brest size and shape. The most frequently performed ones are the following:

1. Vertical technique with scar around the nipple and a single vertical scar extending downwards. There are some small wrinkles for two months which disappear in time.
2. Peri-areolar technique with just one circular scar around the nipple. Initially there are some wrinkles, but they disappear under the pressure of the mammary gland. It is not suitable for large breasts.

If augmentation of breasts is to be done, an implant can be placed in front or behind the gland, but most often under muscle.
Post Surgery Recovery: Resuming normal activities after 5-7 days.
Special Bra is recommended.
Candidates: Ages 18 to 70.
Length of Procedure: 2 to 3 hours
Scars: There are scars around and below the nipples.
Anesthesia: General Anesthesia
Recovery: 1 to 2 weeks.
Sports and physical activities can usually be resumed after 3 weeks.

Women with very large, pendulous breasts may experience a variety of medical problems, caused by the excessive breast weight, ranging from back and neck pain or skin irritation to skeletal deformities and breathing problems. If you decide to have the breast reduction surgery,
Dr. Glusac will examine your breasts and talk to you about the desired size of your breasts. He will show you where he intends to position the nipple and the areola.

The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes about 3-4 hours, during which fat and extra tissue are removed. The scars are around the areola and the underside of the breast. A supportive bra is worn for several weeks and patients can usually return to work  5-7 days after the surgery.

Gynecomastia, or excess development of breast tissue, occurs in as many as 40-60% of men. The cause is not always known, but the incidence increases with certain prescription drugs, use of steroid anabolics or alcohol. Breast reduction surgery may significantly help your appearance and self-image. The procedure is used to remove fat and glandular tissue from the breasts. The result is a flatter, firmer and more masculine-looking chest.

CANDIDATES: Ages 18  to  60
ANESTHESIA: Local anesthesia
RECOVERY: Back to work in 1-2 days.

As many as 2% of women have at least one inverted nipple and still the subject of nipple inversion is seldom discussed among friends or in the media. Most cases of inverted nipples are congenital: some people are just born that way. However, some nipples become inverted after breastfeeding when scar tissue builds in the milk ducts.The surgery consists of a small incision at the base of the nipple while the nipple is protected.

ANESTHESIA: Local anesthesia
SCARS: Tiny scars around the nipple.
RECOVERY: 2-3 days.
RESULTS: Visible in 1-2 weeks.

Liposuction, body sculpting or suction-assisted lipectomy has become one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed today. Liposuction is a permanent removal of fat using a suction technique. It is a contouring procedure that is used to reshape specific areas of the body.

Nearly every part of the body has been successfully treated with liposuction. For women, the most common areas treated are thighs (saddle-bags), hips, stomach and neck (often instead of a facelift, particularly in younger patients). For men, the most problematic areas are waist ("love handles"), stomach, chest (including male breasts or "gynecomastia") and neck. Liposuction is frequently combined with other operations, such as facelifts, breast reductions, tummy tucks, and a variety of reconstructive procedures in order to maximize their effect.

Liposuction removes fat cells permanently and they don't reoccur. Using one or more small, hidden incisions, a cannula (a hollow tube) is inserted under the skin. Patients who also have depressions in their bodies can benefit from liposculpture. Fat can be injected in the face to smoothen folds and wrinkles and in the body to improve the contours of areas such as buttocks, thighs and legs. The compressive garment is worn continuously for 3 weeks after the surgery to limit swelling and ensure proper skin contraction.

The Tumescent Liposuction technique requires only a local anesthetic and adrenaline, NO GENERAL ANESTHESIA is required. The tumescent technique greatly reduces tissue trauma and bleeding from liposuction in addition to eliminating the risks associated with general anesthesia.

LENGHT OF PROCEDURE:  1-2 hours. The patients are placed into compressive garments aftre the surgery.
ANESTHESIA: Local with sedation.Tumescent anesthesia makes the procedure safer.  
SCARS:  Small puncture cosmetic scars.
RECOVERY: Back to work 1-2 days.Showering is allowed 24 hours after the procedure.
RESULTS: Very dramatic changes: the recontouring is permanent.Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in Croatia today.

Abdominoplasty is a very good procedure, especially for women who have had children. Pregnancy usually causes skin laxity and separation of the abdominal muscles (diastasis recti). Stretch marks are also common after the pregnancy. An abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) can help you get rid of this excess loose skin. Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a "tummy tuck" is a major surgical procedure used to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen.

The surgery is performed through a lower abdominal incision, which is usually hidden. The skin is stretched down and additional skin may be removed. Suction (lipectomy) can be combined and performed in some cases on abdomen, hips or elsewhere. Your doctor may select general anesthesia, so you'll sleep through the operation.

A Mini Tummy Tuck or partial abdominoplasty, may be recommended for patients that are within 10% of their ideal body weight. A Mini Tummy Tuck is a variation of this procedure that removes and tightens skin only below the umbilicus (belly button). It is usually combined with a liposuction of the entire stomach and, if indicated, the hips and the thighs.

Length of Procedure: 2-3 hours
Anesthesia: General Anesthesia
Bruising: None
Recovery: Return to an office job is possible 1 week after the surgery.
Results: Visible after the scars heal, apprpximately 3 months after the surgery.

Dr. Branko Glusac | Cosmetic Surgeon Testimonials

I first went to Dr. Glusac for botox and had questions about a possible brow lift. Dr. Glusac listened to me and answered all my questions. He was never pushy and told me to take time to think about it. I decided to have the procedure done several months later, and the results are beautiful. It looks very natural. Dr. Glusac and his staff were there for me every step of the way. He is not only a perfectionist, he cares too! I am very happy and pleased with my overall experience; I would recommend Dr. Glusac to a family member, friend and people looking for a top-notch doctor. D.S.
I am so grateful to wonderful Dr. Glusac who has given me back my youthful face. I could not imagine a better result! T.R.




Before I had my surgery, I had always been self-conscious about my profile and never wanted my picture taken. Now, I feel and look the way I have always envisioned myself to be. Dr. Glusac is truly an artist - keeping the integrity of my nose, he helped me look like myself, only better. I was back to work in 2 weeks and everyone comments on how much younger I look. It was the best decision I have ever made. P.K.

My rhinoplasty experience was an extremely positive one - both the operation as well as the results. Many of my fears and anxieties were alleviated, just knowing that I was in the hands of Dr. Glusac. His warmth and enthused confidence in how he would improve my nose - coupled with his expertise - immediately put me at ease on the day of the operation. The results are amazing. Dr. Glusac managed to fix my entire problem - area in the most natural of ways. My new nose fits me naturally and perfectly. My friends and colleagues who know of the procedure have all been astounded at how natural my "new look" is. Dr. Glusac did a remarkable job. L.T.

I'd been thinking about the rhinoplasty operation for a long time, but only after a detailed conversation with doctor GLUSAC from Makarska, a lovely town on Croatian coast located between the towns of Split and Dubrovnik. This conversation convinced me that the doctor is an expert and that he is reliable, so I decided to actually do it. I subjected myself to an operation on the same day following the above mentioned conversation and it was a great decision. Not only is my nose smaller now, incomparably more beautiful in shape and fitting my facial features perfectly, but I can also breathe much better. Therefore, the result was exactly what the doctor GLUSAC said it would be during our consultation. He said the change on my face would be desirable and natural while the breathing function would be incomparably better after the operation. The operation itself was neither unpleasant, nor painful, and the team working with the doctor was very kind and considerate. An hour after the operation was over, I left the clinic and returned to a very pleasant hotel not far from the sea where all the doctors patients are accommodated. I would like to stress one important fact, which is that postoperative recovery was not at all hard - a mild swell and dark rings around the eyes disappeared quickly. Eight days after the operation and a very pleasant convalescence, I returned to work.

Breat Augmentation
I'd been hoping to have breast augmentation surgery for years, but never had the courage. Then I saw Dr. Glusac on the Internet and sent an inquiry. And now, I'm enjoying my new look.  Meriel
I’d heard stories about breast augmentations and had always been skeptical but now I look and feel great. Thank you Dr. Glusac. Anna





Dear Dr. Glusac,
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am with my Botox. To be honest, being a professional myself, and a picky artist on top of it, I have always been leery about having someone else than me working on me! You did a great job and I am so happy to know that I can refer my clientele without any fear. Sincerely, K.L., H.G.

City of Makarska
Makarska - a picturesque city of enchanting beauty, which lives of tourism and for tourism; the city of youth, culture, sport, and fun. The winner of various awards for its successes in tourism.

The city encompasses picturesque villages at the foot of the Biokovo Mountain, including Veliko Brdo, Puhari?i, Kotišina and Makar (which is where the name of Makarska comes from).

Makarska is one of the most famous tourist destinations on the Croatian coast, attractive for its nature and good climate, rich in tourist attractions and full of hospitable hosts.

To this day, Makarska is known for its sandy beach, which is almost 2 kilometers long. The walkways are lined with pine trees and surrounded by luxury hotels, tourist facilities, and gastronomical havens, and there is plenty of fun for both adults and children.

The best way to become familiar with the history of this city is by visiting the Franciscan monastery which recently celebrated its 500th anniversary.

The city museum can be found on the waterfront, as well as the church of St. Filip. The renovated church of St. Petar is located in the St. Petar park, a spot with a beautiful view of the city, magnificent Mount Biokovo and the open sea.

Makarska is one of the top destinations in Europe - unpoluted, eccological, food... The climate in Makarska on the Croatian coast is Mediterranean.

Without any doubt, the river Cetina is one of the nicest places in Croatia where you can experience the magic of a rafting adventure. It is situated in a luscious region surrounded by quaint little villages. There are lots of stories surrounding the naming of this river. Passed down through the centuries several theories on the naming of the Cetina River have emerged. One possibility is that some of the first Croatians that came down from Northern Europe towards the warmer Southern coast, finding the river and naming it Cetina because it reminded them of the river "Cetynia", in Southern Poland which was their last Nomadic residence.



Plitvice Lakes

The Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia's most popular tourist attraction, was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979. Located roughly halfway between capital city Zagreb and Zadar on the coast, the lakes are definitely a must-see.

The Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia's most popular tourist attraction, was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979. Located roughly halfway between capital city Zagreb and Zadar on the coast, the lakes are definitely a must-see.

The beauty of the National Park lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls, and set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves, boars and rare bird species.  The National Park covers a total area of 300 square kilometres, whilst the lakes join together over a distance of eight kilometres. There's also quite an altitude difference - the highest point is at 1,280m, the lowest at 380m - although the total height difference between the lakes themselves is only 135m.
