Rastoke, Slunj

Lakes, rapids, and waterfalls at Rastoke once provided power for local mills, and today they add to the natural setting of the historical center of Slunj. Frequently referred to as the Small Lakes of Plitvice, the site that was once a rural Croatian settlement is now distinguished by stone and wooden houses, paths, bridges, and quaint restaurants that overlook the natural wonders. From this area you can explore old mills and participate in outdoor activities like rafting, hiking, and cave touring.

  • 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! The river water is clean and not very cold, my sons 5 and 7 year old had a blast. It's a very welcome change in this area!

  • Absolutely gorgeous place to visit. Great hiking paths with beautiful nature and old stone houses and endless waterfalls. Must see ...
  • Beautiful place! Good price. Better for visiting just for afternoon. I prefer Slunj to Plitvice. There were less peple than in Plitvice. Enjoy calmness.
  • When Park coin required. Go down on the left (the House under the water flowing just around the House), and the Cafe coins ever!! Do not change the zoom. Go to the coin parking make super near to fast.
