What surrounds the ranch

Plitvice National Park and the surrounding protected land are one of the last areas in Europe to find a self-sustaining ecosystem with native predators and other wildlife filling the surrounding area. The famous brown bear is the star of the Plitvice Lakes.

Barać's caves, as most of Croatia is created from limestone (over 50%) and natural springs, this enables the creation of many different geological formations.

With many entrances of different sizes, this is the dream of cave explorers and the cave fauna consists of bats, invertebrates, and birds. The surroundings abound in bike and forest hiking trails. Hiking trips are woven through this protected land which allows you to explore various entrances to caves, water sources, and streams on your own or indulge in the trust of guides.
