Located just a 5 minute walk from BeaR’s LOG You will find Korana river at it’s best. Just outside the Plitvice national park border it carries all the elements that created Plitvice, untampered with human interference. Beatifully coloured from azure to green, crystal clear and clean, it makes you want to jump right in.
Outside the borders of the Plitvice National park swimming in Korana river is allowed and there is no better way to cool down in a hot summer day than to take a swim in this beatiful water. It is actually so clean and soft that all surronding villages use Korana water for their waterworks directly from the river, without any need for puryfiing it, you can actually drink it while you swim
Old water mill
On the very same spot you can explore traditional way of making flour – water mill sitting on top of Korana, using the water’s power to make corn into flour. Local population still uses this mill and you can actually see (in this photo as well) in first hand how the process is performed.
For mill to utilize Korana power, little wooden damn was created, which creates picturesque little and shallow lake, about 30m in diametar, which makes it ideal for kids.
