And while it’s a beautiful place to visit, I’ll add one very important caveat – don’t bother going in the peak summer period unless you plan to arrive super early or late. As the source of the Bistrica River, where bone-chillingly cold water bubbles up from a depth of more than 50 m amidst the trees, it certainly has the potential to be a wonderfully peaceful oasis, a perfect place to relax and cool off from the blistering sun. But as the pools are quite small and the parking lot perhaps far larger than it ought to be, the area unfortunately gets disgustingly crowded in July and August. Outside of peak season, you’re likely to have a much more enjoyable experience.
