Where to go

Rastoke – Millers’ Village

The village of Rastoke grew out of the harmonious marriage of man and nature that reaches back over 300 years. The joy of life reflects in the bubbling confluence of the Slunjčica and Korana rivers, where a multitude of waterfalls, tiny lakes and cascades tell the story of the true beauty of nature.

Plitvice Lakes National Park

This National Park has found its place on the UNESCO World Heritage List, blessed as it is with the special natural beauty of a string of lakes and waterfalls. The opportunity to experience a unique moment in these natural galleries should not be missed.

“Nikola Tesla” Memorial Centre, Smiljan

Nikola Tesla, scientist and inventor in the field of electricity, was born and spent his youth there. The modern museum, housed in his birthplace, and the nearby theme park preserve the memories of Tesla’s scientific path.

Velebit Nature Park and North Velebit National Park

The uniqueness of karstic forms, landscapes and the living world are the reasons why UNESCO issued a Declaration that the entire Velebit Nature Park is a world biosphere reservation. The Northern Velebit National Park is its most attractive part, and it is known for the Hajdučki and Rožanski Kukovi peaks, as well as for the Velebit botanical garden.
The centre of the National Park is located in Krasno, one of the great Marian sanctuaries, situated at an altitude of 714 metres.

Medieval town of Ogulin

The town of Ogulin is located in an area teeming with legends and folk traditions that developed amid a strikingly beautiful natural and historically challenging environment. One of these legends concerns Đula’s Abyss, where the River Dobra disappears underground and a girl named Đula took her life over unrequited love – or so legend has it.

The Star of Karlovac – The Renaissance Core of the Town of Karlovac

The town of Karlovac, located on four rivers, was built in the sixteenth century with a unique town centre in the shape of a six-pointed star and an exact geometrical network of streets, town quarters and the central square.
