A watermill village situated where the blue-green waters of river Slunjčica flows into the Korana river.
Most of the houses were built at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Because of its extraordinary natural beauties and historical tradition, in 1962 Rastoke village fell under the protection of the State Directorate for cultural and historical heritage. Many ancient civilizations, as well as contemporary urban environments whitness that the water has always attracted people to come to its banks and settle there.
For thousands of years, the waters of Korana and Slunjčica, and their flora and fauna, fought the laws of nature, and as a result of this struggle in the limestone plateau, a remarkable canyon was carved in for us to take pleasure in.
Seeing this natural phenomenon, this “poured off” (“rastočen”) terrain, a place where the waters of river Slunjčica pour off in several backwaters, leaving behind small elevations which then form watercourses and waterfalls, people built a village and named it RASTOKE. Here, they found everything they needed and stayed here, forever bound with nature.

The legend about the fairies in Rastoke is as old as the village itself – while the spoon mills grounded the corn and grain all night, the millers lit he paraffin lights, sat together and recounted life stories long into the night. Meanwhile, the fairies would take the horses that millers left by the trellises to rest until they head home. At dawn, the fairies would return the horses – short of breath and tired, their mane braided, and they would wash their laundry in Slunjčica, dance around and played, called the millers to join them… They still gather today, and anyone who really wants to see them can, at the Fairy’s Hair fall.
In 1962, a German production company, Rialto film, shot its first western, Winnetou. It was partly filmed in Croatia, i.e. the Plitvice Lakes, Paklenica National Park, the river Zrmanja, and partly in Rastoke. The old medicine-man was played by Mile Štrk from Slunj.
For the most, it was filmed in Plitvice National Park, where the treasure was hidden and in the end, will stay there forever.
After the successful production of this legendary movie, the German production company left a totem used on the set in Rastoke. It has been preserved till this day, although only two sides have the original motives, the rest are Croatian.
Movies about the legendary chief Winnetou, based on the book written by Karl May, tell a story of the adventures of chief Winnetou and his sister Nsho Tschi. One of the movies was “Winnetou and Old Firehand”, based on the script written by David de Reszke, and directed by Alfred Vohrer in 1966.
The totem you can see on the family Holjevac estate is in fact a part of a stage setting from making one of Winnetou movies, “Treasure of Silver Lake”, filmed in 1962. Most of it was filmed in Plitvice National Park, and there was an Indian village and a saloon set up in Slunj. The locals played the extras, and the medicine-man was played by Mile Štrk, one of the legends in the town of Slunj.

Continental Croatia covers the area of Gorski Kotar and Lika, located in the hinterland of Kvarner and Northern Dalmatia, Central Croatian Zagorje and the administrative center of the Croatian capital Zagreb, and in eastern Slavonia and Baranja, barns Croatian.
Although this is a large area rich in cultural and historical heritage and numerous natural beauties, Continental Croatia only clears its way on the tourist map of Europe and not only the world, but also Croatian.
The forms of tourism are represented on the continent, and that are primarily rural, hunting, fishing, golf, religious, sports and recreation, health and congress tourism, can be developed as a fully independent offer.
World tourism trend is more shorter trips per year (citybreak, wellness and lifestyle) and precisely in this fact lies the greatest potential for tourism development.
Untouched nature, numerous cultural and historical monuments and a wealth of gastronomic delights make the inevitable destination for tourists seeking a true holiday.
