Hello world! Ready for more adventure?
After our Castle adventure in Karlovac county, we drove close to Slunj city and spent night in lovely Restaurant Rooms Pino. We booked double bed room with balcony for very affordable price (approx. 300 HRK). They also have restaurant within object, so we had both dinner and breakfast there.
Rastoke watermill village
First thing in a morning we drove to Rastoke watermill village. We parked on main road, right before village bridge, on a public parking (fee approx. 1 EUR per hour). Right there, you can see Rastoke beauty!
Slunjčica flows into the Korana River across cascades creating waterfalls of different size – MIND BLOWING, we know! Rastoke are often called Plitvice’s little sister, but they are so much more than that!
We spent only half day in Rastoke, but would recommend you to take entire day! Etno village is small itself, but it is a place you can get lost in. They have tavern, mill, textile house, museum, fishpond and meadow with a totem in the middle. The waterfalls in Rastoke were named after the mill owners, and the most famous ones are Buk, Hrvoje and Fairy Hair (local: Vilina kosa). But our favorite in village was hidden cave bellow waterfall.
Don’t forget to stop in some of the cutest restaurants and try some homemade specialties.
We are going to Plitvice National Park next, since we are in neighborhood :). Don’t forget to follow our adventures on our social network:
