Normally, I would not like a place which is too authentic (or rustic) but somehow I love this place. Here is a short list of things I found here that could have usually turned me off: communal bathroom (but luckily nobody else was on the 2nd floor during our stay and we could have the whole place to ourselves), dim...

Ivica and the location made this an excellent choice of accommodation. We arrived with the intention of rushing off to see the waterfalls. However Ivica suggested we sit and have a drink and talk by the river. Then he brought us a map and showed us a nice quick evening trail to take. He also marked an ATM, shop and... More

We found San Korana through Trip Advisor reviews...it's just as described by others. We loved it. Besides being ideally located to visit the Plitivice Lakes, it's authenticity and rustic quality added to our experience - It is virtually feet away from a river and waterfall which, yes folks, is a rush of constant noise as waterfalls are. We loved that... More

Charming location beside waterfalls in a small village. Ivica is a wonderful host. He goes out of his way to make your visit to this amazing UNESCO area memorable. The accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable with a well equipped shared kitchen. A short drive away is a small supermarket with fresh meat etc for a BBQ by the... More

This village is truly magical! The waterfalls, the crystal clear water, and the unbelievable kindness and hospitality of the owner (Ivica). This property is protected by Unesco. Upon our arrival, Ivica greeted us with drinks and stories. He is truly an incredible man. The accommodation is basic and very clean. Ivica made our trip to Plitvice unforgettable with his extensive... More

My husband & I stayed at San Korona for 6 nights Sept 2013 for a walking and rafting holiday. We wanted to really see the area on foot and by water. Ivica was the most friendly and informative host we have ever come across, a marvellous ambassador for his country. He knew the Plitvice Park really well and gave us... More

We stayed here in July of 2013 for one night. Beautiful location, rustic, and very gracious and informative host and patient. Accommodations were good for the value and to hear the waterfall outside our window at night was amazing, very country, like someone's house. So close to the park which was most important to us as it was a stop... More

I stayed at Sobe San Korana with my wife and my 3yo daughter in a fully equipped apartment for a week. It's uncommon to stay in Plivitce Lakes area for a so long time, but I suggest to go there and discover nature not only at the lakes but also all around. If you want to stay in contact with... More

Placed on a tiny, picturesque village off the main access to the Plitvice Park. A minutes drive from Plitvica entrance P3. The exterior is rustic and authentic, as it is an old mill next to the stream. The owner has a lot of knowledge about the park and helped us plan our visit well, considering the bad weather (=rain). Still,... More

We stayed at Iviica's place for 2 nights with a gorup of 11 friends. Ivica was extremely helpful in reaching the remote village of Korana, oganizing our trip to the Plitvice park and even arrangeing eating options for us. I strongly recommend a stay at San Korana, whether you are a group, a couple or a family. Thank you Ivica... More
