  • Beautiful village between Sierras, waterfalls, rivers and beautiful buildings. The history of the town is connected to nature, people respect the river very much.

  • Car Rental is a smart choice for travelers around Plitvice. You should park your car in a nearby parking lot and walk around leisurely. When we arrived, there was a light rain, and there were only quaint houses dotted with natural rivers. A large river falls into a waterfall and pours into another river, and the inhabitants drift off a portion of the upper river to create another flow, where the water wheel is turned and the power source. There is a sense of harmony between people and nature.
