If we do manage to reach Slunj early enough (depending on how much exploration we do during the day), we will visit the nearby picturesque village of Rastoke known for its numerous lakes, waterfalls and rapids. In the evening we will stay in the hotel Mirjana Rastoke where the dinner is waiting for us.

The park has been stunning visitors for ages, and so it’s no wonder that it has been entered into UNESCO’s World Heritage List. After 3-4 hours of strolls along the roads and paths surrounded by beautiful waterfalls and numerous lakes, it is time to recover the energy consumed and soon after the journey continues we will stop for the lunch.
