Just a few kilometers away from Jajce are Pliva Lakes, here we made our overnight just next to the lake. The “heavy” water of these lakes – meaning a high level of hydrogen – makes them particularly still, which creates a stunning reflection of the mountains surrounding them. In the morning we made a short hike to famous watermills – the twenty watermills sit upon a limestone partition that separates the Great and Small Pliva lakes. Dating back to the Middle Ages, these watermills demonstrate the historical architecture style and carpentry techniques of the region.
