Route 48 and 50 ( Lasinja – bath resort – Desno Sredičko – Lasinja ), total distance 14 km
Routes 48 and 50, 14 kilometres in length, start at Lasinja, at the central town square. As Lasinja lies on the right bank of the Kupa, the nearby places were named Desni Štefanki and Desno Sredičko. These places are perfect for orientation and interesting for visiting.
The routes are not demanding and provide abundance of experiences as they go through beautiful meadows and landscapes, which take you to the peaceful banks of the Kupa river where there are several bath resorts. The Kupa is an unforeseen river with several faces. Sometimes calm and fast, sometimes deep, and sometimes very shallow. Particularly charming is having a swim in the clean Kupa river with the magnificent nature and surrounding representing a true pleasure for fishermen and all nature lovers. In this part, the Kupa is extremely rich in fish and there are some capital specimens of various fish species in this area.
Once you have reached the banks of the Kupa river, park your bike and see this part once again from another perspective. You will enjoy a day full of pure natural beauty and do not miss the opportunity to take an excellent photo with this river pearl.

Under the cave) where, a lot of visitors enjoy in the movies in this pleasant atmosphere at the Kupa river and the starry sky.
