The waterfall in the heart of Rastoke resembles a scattered hair in many ways, because it is crumbling in narrow streams through the protruding travertine barriers. The legend says that the fairies had a silver hair color, and spent time on green slopes along the water. For this reason, today there is a belief that the silverhair fairies, at night, visit Rastoke and rest in a pleasant natural ambience. Waterfall “Vilina Kosa” got its name from these fairies.
