Audit user account object creation in Active Directory

I'm struggling with the following issue (I was pretty sure it's easy to troubleshoot but I'm running out of ideas):
I need to be able to track the event of AD user account creation. When I create any user account and subsequently check the event viewer (security) log, I don't see such event logged at all.
Could you please advice if there needs some special auditing to be enabled or what could be wrong?
Tested on 2 DCs, both running Windows Server 2012.
Thank you very much in advance.
