My wife and I were looking for something to do after our visit to Plitvice lakes. The Barac caves seemed like a good option and we were not disappointed: our guide Slaven was extremely friendly, spoke good English and was very knowledgeable about the caves. The caves offer some spectacular sights on millions of years old geological formations (stalactites, stalagmites,... More

If you arrive and mis the notice board at the upper area of the car park, hike the 600 metres ands it's a Tuesday then you will be out of luck. A lot of people arrived, hiked and found it was closed.... All other days of the week it's open. Given it's a wet day activity not the best needless... More

We tried to view the caves two days in a row. One day it was raining, so we thought, why not go in a cave? Can't be bad in the rain. They were closed. Today we went back to visit at 1515. They close at 1600, and considering :25-35 in the cave, that is perfect, right? Other reviews stated the... More

We heard (by concidence) about this sight on an online forum and decided to visit due to great reviews. Given it was the end of September, we were lucky to have a guide just for ouserveles, which was great. Although we went to the caves after the half-day visit to the Plitvice Lakes, I believe it was worth the effort... More

We went there on a whim after a tour of the lakes. Since it was out of the season we were only 4 people + guide. The guide was good, the cave interesting to look at. If you want information on Karst and a first hand look at what water can do inside stone the cave is a good destination.... More

The cave system here is 65 million years old, which makes it pretty interesting by itself. You have to hire a guide and go to the cave with the group (60 KN/person). The tour itself is pretty short - maybe 30min, and the cave isn't that big, but formations and the cave's climate are pretty impressive.

This really is worth the effort and energy needed to see these wonderful sights. When I was there (in august) there were long queues for the boats, so some patience is needed, Be prepared for a very long day as there is so much to take in,

As we were not walking the Plitvice Lakes until the next morning we added this interesting side trip into our day. Do remember to park your vehicle in the designated carpark at the top of the hill :-) the park rangers will give you a stern telling off otherwise (was all quite humorous and in good nature) There are three...

If you are considering this attraction it might be better to pair it with cule hire from on of the local towns. We hired bikes from Seliste Drezniko and followed one of the well marked cycle paths to the caves which took in the water route along the korana valley taking in old castles, mills and other historic sites.

The caves offer a 40 minute guided and well scripted tour. About 20 of those minutes are just walking to and from the entrance. There are some nice formation, but very little to see and to short of any excursion for the cost. The staff are friendly, but there is not much to see here.
