We are loving this new, eco-friendly hotel located in the village of Licko Petrovo Selo, near the spectacular Plitvice Lakes National Park. The four-star Hotel Lyra opened its doors in March of this year and offers contemporary Scandi-chic, eco-conscious accommodation just 7km away from the UNESCO-protected Plitvice Lakes.
Stay in one of its 58 rooms and suites and enjoy delicious meals in its restaurant, which offers a true taste of the region. The hotel is really passionate about using local produce from nearby farms and bakers, and their dedication shows in the quality of food that comes to your table.
Taking advantage of the dark skies over this part of Croatia, the hotel has invested in some pretty heavy-duty telescopes and, with the help of local astronomers, will host some star-gazing evenings.
The gardens here are filled with indigenous plants and herbs, and electric bikes are available for guests to get around in an environmentally friendly fashion. Hotel Lyra also keeps community engagement high on the agenda and has a team of staff recruited from the surrounding communities, each with their own local history and story to tell.
