Rastoke is a village and mills at the Slunjčica river, right before it flows into the Korana river. The waterfalls are different from other waterfalls, they are a result of tufa deposition from limestone rich karst water. The rims of the pools form a sort of huge staircase. There are several such rimstone pool areas in Croatia, most famous are the Plitvitze Lakes, but here one thing is different. The height difference was used by mills since the Middle Ages. There were 22 water mills, 4 fulling mills, 7 baskets for rinsing whites and coloured laundry and 28 houses with appertaining farm buildings. As a result the site is not only a Natural Monument, but also a Cultural Monument.
