DEEP IN THE FOREST Villa “Izvor” from above


Villa Izvor – one of Tito’s abandoned former summer residences isn`t a part of tour routes, but many people visit it anyway.

It is located deep in the forest above the Plitvice Lakes, at the source of the Plitvica River. Once upon a time, it was a hideaway for the most powerful person in the former Yugoslavia, Josip Broz Tito.

Now largely forgotten, the former mansion is a crumbling ruin, heavily vandalized and looted.

It’s a really cool place many people choose to explore, although it`s forbidden.

Here are some images from the bird`s eye view!
