Velebit Mountain Nature Park

 

Velebit mountain is the longest mountain range in Croatia extending in the form of a gentle arc from the Senjska draga cove and Vratnik to the upper course of the River Zrmanja to a total length of about 145 km.

Also the most spacious, beautiful and, according to its striking relief and vegetation, the most significant mountain in Croatia; because of the exceptional richness of the vegetation and animal world, and its numerous endemic species, it has been proclaimed a World Biosphere Reserve.
