Photographer's Note

Rastoke (Croatian pronunciation: [rastoke]) is a village, located in the Town of Slunj, known for the Slunjčica river, which flows into the river Korana at Rastoke. Rastoke is also known under the name "city of cats", because statistically it is the city with the most cats per person in Croatia.
At Rastoke, similar natural phenomena are occurring as at the Plitvice Lakes. Rastoke is sometimes known as "the Small Lakes of Plitvice", and is connected to the Plitvice Lakes by the Korana river. Rastoke is a place of autochthonous ecologic and ethnographic significance due to its symbiosis of natural and civilizational features.
The town of Slunj emerged around Rastoke and the branching of the Slunjčica and Korana rivers. The watermills erected at this place largely contributed to the economic development of Slunj as the center of the region of Kordun.
