Rastoke Waterfalls

Slunj is small town in the central part of Croatia, situated on the half way in between town of Karlovac and NP Plitvice Lakes. Rastoke is suburb of Slunj located just about half of kilometer before entering into the town. It is an area rich of several small brooks which makes network of more then dozen waterfalls and cascades before inflowing into the River of Korana.


Rastoke is paradise of peace, a perfect place for a break, for a day trip or for accommodation. It is almost unknown place for the most visitors of Croatia, even if they passing by when going to NP Plitvicka Jezera. I strongly recommend this place for accommodation to those who will stay over night in the NP.

This page does not have a single picture of Slunj, small town numbering only 2000 inhabitants. The city has a long history, starting in the 12th century, primarily because of its extremely important strategic position. Here the Duke Frankopan built a castle and fortress, which they called Slovin, and the remains of it can still be seen in the city center. The fortress and the city ravaged by the Ottomans, then it became part of the Military Border, under the rule of Hapsburg Monarchy, for a short time it was under the rule of Napoleon and during this period in the city flourished economy, like never before.

    Driving from Zagreb to Split in June last year, we passed through Slunje and, as you say, were so struck by the beauty of Rastoke we just had to get out and explore a little. Now we're coming back this year, with friends - this time to explore a lot. It is truly the most beautiful place - breathtaking! leyle
