Points of interest

Museum of Croatian Independence War in Turanj

Only 30 minutes' drive from the tourist hotspot Plitvice Lakes, lies the Croatian War of Independence Museum.

The museum, although not quite finished, is a sombre place that reflects the atrocities of war. It is situated in Turanj near Karlovac, and it was an important location during Croatia's war for independence. From 1991 to 1995, Karlovac found itself right on the front line between newly independent Croatia and the breakaway Serbian Republic of Krajina. Turanj was taken by the latter and suffered much damage. Today, the place is transformed into a unique open-air museum. The museum's main building isn't finished yet, but you can stroll around the open part of the museum that showcases various combat vehicles, weapons, a thoroughly shelled building, and a Croatian fighter plane, mounted dramatically into the air.

Isolated, unspoiled, secretive, and magical…it's Rastoke.

This little showstopper is famous for its stunning landscapes dotted with watermills, waterfalls and wooden houses. As you stroll around Rastoke, you will feel like someone has pulled you out of the reality and placed you in a land of fairies. The village was once a rural Croatian settlement, now known for stone and wooden houses, paths, bridges, and amazing restaurants that overlook the natural wonders. You can either enjoy in a relaxing walk around the village or join more adventures activities such as rafting, hiking, and cave touring. Because of its immense beauty and rich historical and cultural heritage, Rastoke were included in the Register of Immovable Cultural Monuments in 1969. This small village is a perfect introduction to the Plitvice Lakes National Park, and it's often called ''Little Plitvice''.
