Pazin Waterfall (Zarecki Krov): Hidden Waterfall in Croatia

Over the last five to ten years, tourism in Croatia has skyrocketed. While millions of tourists visit the beautiful country lined with pristine beaches and waterfalls, it is becoming harder and harder to find destinations that are not over run by tourists. While Croatia has hundreds of waterfalls, including the infamous Plitvice Lakes, there are many lesser known waterfalls that offer incredible views without the hoards of people. One of the prettiest waterfalls in the Croatia is Pazin waterfall, and if you go at the right time, you will have it all to yourself.

Pazin Waterfall (Zarecki Krov Waterfall)

Located in the village of Zarecje, in the center of Croatia’s Istria wine region, Pazin waterfall is the best hidden waterfall in Croatia. Zarecki Krov “Zarecki Roof” as the name suggests, resembles a wide rock base that hangs over the watering hole that is a part of the Pazincica river. I visited Pazin waterfall in June (one of the peak months of tourism in Croatia), and had the place entirely to myself. Pazin waterfall offers a range of activities, including swimming, cliff jumping, and hiking. The rocks surrounding the waterfall provide the perfect spot to have a picnic with a stunning view. I stayed here for 3 hours, but easily could have stayed the entire day. Pazin waterfall offers a beautiful landscape and relaxing atmosphere that I didn’t think was still possible in Croatia during the summer.

Pazin Waterfall Price

If you have been to other waterfalls in Croatia, including Plitvice Lakes (which have a 20 euro entrance fee), you may be wondering what the price is to enter Pazin waterfall. Unlike most attractions in Croatia, Pazin waterfall is 100% free.

How to get to Zarecki Krov Waterfall?

While Zarecki Krov waterfall is off the beaten path, it is very accessible if you have a car. There are two roads that you can use to reach the waterfall, and both have free parking. Just type in Pazin waterfalls into google maps, and drive your car to the end of either of those roads. I came from the road from the North side, and after parking at the end of the road it was only a 5 minute walk to the waterfall. You can use this picture below for reference.

Pazin Waterfall cliff jumping

As you can see in my video above, Pazin waterfall offers the perfect spot for cliff jumping. The drop is around 7 meters, and the water below is very deep making it a safe space for everyone to jump. There is also a very cool cave underneath the waterfall that offers the perfect place to relax and chill with the sound and view of the waterfall in front of you.
