Ten extremely peaceful horses on Ranch Terra are in great shape and everybody can ride them, even the families with small kids and those in advanced age. On the ranch you will spend pleasant time with horses and learn something new about their hierarchy. Only 20 kilometres from National park Plitvice Lakes you can visit Barać’s caves. According to the oral tradition, they were named after Barać who defeated the Turkish giant in a duel near by the caves. Once called Radaković’s caves, the three caves today are named Big and Small, Upper and Lower, while the Third (which allegedly is not connected with the first two) is called New Barać’s cave. In one hour walk through the cave the guide introduces you to its one thousand formation. Going through the cave halls of interesting names: the Guano hall, the Hall of elephant feet which is full of stalactites and stalagmites, the Dragon’s pharynx and the Hall of lost souls you will discover the whole new world which is assumed to have been the home of prehistoric man! The municipality of Rakovica is rich with caves and some of the world’s greatest speleologists call it speleological El Dorado. Unlike the toponym Barać which no longer exist in this area, the caves are eternal. Only 30 kilometers from National Park Plitvice Lakes, in the small city of Slunj the watermill settlement Rastoke is placed. This magical water world was named after dissolution of the river Slunjčica by which it is formed a lot of small lakes and waterfalls, such as Buk, Hrvoje and Vilina kosa (Dodder). What also makes this place special are the mill spoons most of which originate from 19 th and 20 th and the oldest from the 17 th century. Besides the mills, ganjci (terraces above the water) are also a characteristic of Rastoke. Despite the small population of Slunj, Rastoke are full of accommodation units and if you decide to spend the night there, you will wake up with harmonic gurgle of water. Thanks to its unusual construction Rastoke are declared a cultural monument in 1969. Besides Slunjčica, in the area of Slunj there are two more karst rivers: Korana and Mrežnica. The source of unseaworthy Korana represents the magnificent end of Plitvice lakes and of water of waterfall Plitvice, and the origin of the name of this extremely clean river is not known. While some think that it is a derivate of the word kora (crust), others believe that Korana (Gorana) refers to the water that flows from the hill (gora). The first village to pass through is the village of the same name – Korana, and a few miles further it descends to the village Smiljanac where in one part goes through ground becoming the underground river. If all this is not enough reason to visit this magical place, we will remark that Slunj was declared the second most hospitable city in the world by Guest Review Awards.
