    In addition to the visit to the village, already widely reviewed, I would like to point out the possibility of taking a dip in the river flowing at the bottom of Rastoke and creates a picturesque natural pool. The area is equipped with tables, benches, a small bar and meadows where lie sunbathing. There are also two trampolines from about 3 and 5 metres!
