The Mediterranean as it once was
Slunj provides lots of opportunities for a holiday and recreation. Situated above the rivers Slunjčica and Korana along the main road to the Plitvice lakes, and evidence of its turbulent past are today by the walls of the old Frankopan city.

The pearl of Slunj – the water mill village of Rastoke– resulted from natures games where the green-blue water of Slunjčica spills over travertine rock into the Korana creating many waterfalls, rapids, cascades and small lakes that are interlaced in the mill village.

Besides swimming and paddling in calm waters, the river Korana is in some parts crazily fast and thus suitable for kayaking and canoeing. In addition to fishing, the Slunj region offers the possibility for hunting. A wide gastronomic offer is found in many restaurants, and you can find accommodation in one of the houses of locals.
This is Croatia’s best known national park and the only one of eight that is listed on the UNESCO List of World Heritage sites. The main attractions of this park, unique in the world, are the 16 small lakes joined by waterfalls created by the sedimentation of travertine, a special type of limestone. This national park encompasses the source of the river Korana, located in the area surrounded by dense forests of beech, fir and spruce. There are also several caves in the park, as well as springs and flowering meadows. The brown bear stands out as one of many protected animal species. The popularity of this park is also boosted by the special means of transport used to ferry visitors around: the panoramic electric trains and the noiseless electro-powered boats. It is impossible to say whether the park is more beautiful in the spring, when the flowers in its meadows are in full bloom and when the trees have turned green again, or when the riot of autumn colours is reflected in the waters of the lakes, or indeed during the winter calm, when ice petrifies the waterfalls and when the surrounding trees are heavily laden with snow. By a network of paths, visitors can get around and access the numerous waterfalls and the rocky lake shores easily.
