Situated in the Central Croatian town of Slunj is the stunning little watermills village of Rastoke. Due to its stunning natural and cultural beauty, Rastoke is one of the best places to pick for a one-day trip.

Rastoke is known for its beautiful wooden watermills and the picturesque little waterfalls and flowing cascades along the Slunjčica river, which flows into the river Korana at this place.

The most famous sights in Rastoke are its waterfalls with watermills – the oldest mills date back to the 17 century. Thanks to the area’s remarkable natural sights and history, the village of Rastoke was put under national monument protection in 1962.

The Korana river originates at Plitvice Lakes National Park, and Rastoke is often called Plitvice Lake’s little sister due to similarities in natural phenomena occurring at both locations. Only 33 km separates Plitvice Lakes National Park and Rastoke, and are only about 100 km from the Zagreb.
