Nature

The Mirusha waterfalls are a series of waterfalls found in the Mirusha River, a tributary of the White Drin, in Kosovo. The waterfalls have, over time, created canyons and caves, which are famous throughout Kosovo. The river has carved a 10 kilometres (6 mi) long canyon and has created 13 river lakes with waterfalls between them, which has earned them the name of "Plitvice of Metohija", referring to the more famous waterfalls in Croatia. The waterfalls are one of the most visited attractions of the area and people often go for a swim. The walls around the waterfalls are white in color , whereas the water from the Mirusha river is a dirty brown. The waterfalls caves are also popular with visitors.
