The four-star Hotel Degenija is the perfect choice for guests who wish to stay as close as possible to Plitvice National Park without having to make any sacrifices with regards to comfort or space. This modern hotel offers 20 bright rooms with air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi and satellite TV.

Guests can enjoy free parking on site, there is a children’s playground and the hotel offers rental bikes so guests can explore the idyllic countryside by following one of the many bike trails.

Hotel Degenija’s restaurant offers local specialties such as freshly caught trout, veal steak in sauce with homemade gnocchi, spit roasted lamb and a variety of dishes prepared ‘under the bell’, a traditional Croatian way of cooking.

From the terrace guests can enjoy a beautiful view over the hills and the nearby villages, while trying one of the hotel’s homemade types of brandy, a cocktail or a glass of wine.

National Park Plitvice and its surroundings attract visitors all year round and each season has its own charm. During hot summer days, visitors can swim in the Korana river, just 1km from the hotel, and during the winter season there is nothing more relaxing than taking a walk through the beautiful, white winter landscape. Just 6km from the hotel you will find a small ski resort named Mukinje.

Other interesting sites nearby include the Barac caves (10km from the hotel) and the ethno village of Korana (4km from the hotel).
