The forest area extends from the southwest to northeast area and it forms a part of the protected natural area of the Trakošćan Park Forest. It is one of the most beautifully formed parks with rich vegetation and interesting vistas and it provides a unique experience of untouched nature.
The Trakošćan Lake is an artificial reservoir formed in the mid-19th century. The lake receives water from streams that flow down the slopes of the surrounding highlands, the most important being the Čemernica stream. The lake has a dual function – agronomic and aesthetic.
