In Velebit House you will meet a large part of this diversity - various insects and birds, large beasts, endemic plant species adapted to extreme living conditions... But the value of this mountain is not only in the number of plant, animal and fungal species, but also in the diversity if its landscape. The reason for this is the many superficial karstic forms - sinkholes, ridges, crags, limestone pavements... to name just a few. But the story of how they came to be is told in Velebit House!

Bear refuge Kuterevo Shelter for Young Bears Kutereva, takes care of teddy bears who are accidentally or poaching separated from their mother at an age when they are too young to live independently. Such cubs, fed with the help and care of humans, fail to develop the knowledge and skills they need to live independently. Therefore, they never go to their natural habitats but remain in the refuge that is now a unique project of this kind in the world.

Parks & Nature
National parks and natural beauty.
Constructed using the drystone technique, the Premužić Trail is today considered a masterpiece of trail building. The route is laid out so as to provide the easiest possible access to the most rugged and inaccessible sections of north Velebit – Hajdučki i Rožanski Kukovi. The 57 km route runs along the mountain ridge from Zavižan to Baške Oštarije in central Velebit. As there are virtually no steep ascents, the route is also suitable for visitors unaccustomed to mountaineering. Branching off from the Premužić Trail are several paths that climb up to some of the most spectacular peaks of northe and central Velebit - Gromovača, Crikvena, Šatorina and others. A 16-km portion of the trail runs through the Northern Velebit National Park. At about two hours’ walk from Zavižan is a mountain shelter called Rossi’s shelter. NATIONAL PARK "NORTHERN VELEBIT" Northern Velebit is an ideal destination for all those who prefer active holidays and relaxation in intact natural surroundings where you can experience the charm of pristine wilderness. You will be able to choose from over 30 mountain trails that run through different landscapes offering you countless possibilities for exploring the region. For easier orientation, all mountain trails are waymarked with signposts installed at intersections stating the average hike duration in hours. Almost all of the trails lead to mountain peaks that afford magnificent views of the sea, the Adriatic islands and the region of Lika. The existing mountain trails and paths are also suitable for other activities such as trekking and hiking. Web: http://www.np-sjeverni-velebit.hr/

With its exceptional natural beauty, this area has always attracted nature lovers, and already on 8 April 1949, it was proclaimed Croatia’s first national park. The process of tufa formation, which results in the building of the tufa, or travertine, barriers and resulted in the creation of the lakes, is the outstanding universal value, for which the Plitvice Lakes were internationally recognised on 26 October 1979 with their inscription onto the UNESCO World Heritage List. In 1997, the boundaries of the national park were expanded, and today it covers an area just under 300 km2. The Plitvice Lakes National Park offers visitors seven different routes to tour the lake system, and four hiking trails. The park is open to visitors year round. All visitors are required to follow the instructions listed on the information panels, to keep on the marked trails, and to leave no traces of their visit, such as litter, or marking or devastating nature in any form.
