The first stop is Bihać , just 30 km east of Plitvice in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I had the opportunity last month to call in to a taping of Rick Steves' NPR program when he was talking about that part of the world, and his guest recommended Bihać as a back-door stop on this drive. It is supposed to be a charming little town on the banks of the Una River and adjacent to Una National Park, so if it's a nice day it will probably be worth at least a short detour and the park has some waterfalls, in case we didn't see enough the day before.
