While most of the guest are just visiting national park lakes itself there are plenty of other options and things to do in and around the National Park. Some of them we ll recommend you and describe you on this page:

  • Hiking – there are plenty of hiking options in and around the national park itself.
  • Barac cave – for some underground sightseeing (extremely rich in dripstone (stalactites, stalagmites and stalagnates) these caves are just 20min drive away from our house.
  • Rastoke – This old part of Slunj town is known for its well-preserved mills and the picturesque little waterfalls along the Slunjcica river, which flows into the river Korana at this place. The Korana river originates at Plitvice Lakes National Park. Here, one can observe a symbiosis between the fantastic creations of nature and human technological achievements dating back several centuries, the mills of Rastoke. Innovative at a certain time in history, for the first time primitive machines had not been driven by the strength of humans or animals, but by water power.
  • Nikola Tesla memorial Smiljan – situated only 65km away from Plitvice Lakes National Park Nikola Tesla’s birthplace is worth visiting if you are fan of this “genius who lit the world”
  • Paintball, Archery, Quad – for all those of you who like more active and adventerous way of recreation there are several places nearby the national park where you can enjoy this kind of recreation
  • National Park Northern Velebit only 83km away this part of the Velebit Mountain is a true patchwork of the most diverse habitats that are home to countless plant, fungus and animal species – a wealth that is yet to be explored in its entirety.
  • National Park Paklenica –  southern part of Velebit Mountain, the  relatively small area has an abundance of geomorphological phenomena and forms,  diverse flora and fauna, attractive landscapes and intact nature. Less then 2h drive from Plitvice (115km) Paklenica National Park is the most visited climbing center in Croatia, also popular outside Croatia.
  • Kuterevo bear refuge – name says it all, in small village of Kuterevo The Bear Refuge was founded in 2002. In this moment eight bears are hosted in the refuge.
