Rastoke – “Little Plitvice”

This picturesque watermills village, nicknamed „Little Plitvice“, was built more than 300 years ago on the Slunjcica river which runs over a series of travertine barriers, thus creating many small lakes and waterfalls. The village represents an ideal symbiosis between nature's fantastic creations and centuries-old human technical achievements. In addition to various types of milling, watermills were also used for washing the laundry, innovative at a certain time in history as the first primitive washing machines powered by running water. Due to this architectural, historical and natural harmony and ethnographic heritage, Rastoke was declared a national cultural monument in 1969.
