The village Grabovac is only 8 km away from the National Park Plitvice Lakes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The visiting area of the National Park has 16 beautiful lakes, all connected to each other with numerous beautiful waterfalls. The lakes are on different levels, and the waterfalls are cascading between them over travertine barriers. Travertine is a unique kind of rock which is not eroded by water; on the contrary, water makes it grow and change its shape; so every visit to the lakes offers a new memorable experience.
On and around the lakes grow many different kinds of plants, suchs as more than 20 different types of orchyds. The animal life is also rich. Large animals can not be met while walking around the lakes, but you can enjoy watching beautiful butterflies, frogs, salamanders, squirrels.
The lakes are visited on foot, visitors walk along footpaths and wooden bridges. There are electric boats on the biggest lake.
Other activities and places of interest in the area are Barac's caves, Rastoke waterfalls, white water rafting and horseback riding, several excellent restaurants, swimming on the River Korana.
Plitvice Lakes are exceptionally attractive in winter, when the waterfalls are white and frozen, but the water is still running bellow.
