Cerovac Caves, located in the south part of the Velebit Nature Park, are one of the best known and most important speleological features in Croatia.
The complex is comprised of three caves (Lower, Middle and Upper Cave) containing a total of 7 kilometres of explored passages. Available for visitors are the first 700 meters of Lower and Upper Caves.
If you are planning an excursion that will discover new and interesting destinations to you, make sure to visit Zavratnica – one of the most beautiful coves of the Croatian coast, protected in the category of significant landscapes. When it comes to its origins, Zavratnica is actually a submerged torrent valley with canyon cliffs approximately 100 meters high. The length of the cove is approximately 900 meters, and the width varies between 50 to 150 meters. The site dates back to the Cretaceous period, and it is marked by a number of talus cones that were formed and then stopped by the relief or by the planting of trees and low shrubs. There are 129 plant species in Zavratnica, 100 of them autochthonous, and 29 allochthonous.
There are four educational trails in the Park. The Kude's Bridge trail leads to the most beautiful part of the Krupa River, where tufa cascades became foundations for Kude's Bridge built across them. This is the oldest preserved crossing of the Krupa River built in dry stone wall technique. Zavratnica educational trail leads us to the cove of Zavratnica – a significant landscape and one of the most beautiful coves of the Adriatic. The third trail leads from Starigrad Senjski to Donja Klada, acquainting visitors with traditional stone architecture. The fourth trail is Theresiana – part of the old Austro-Hungarian road from the 18th century.
