VELEBIT – the largest and the most beautiful Croatian “Sacred Mountain”. It is stretching along the coast of the Adriatic sea for full 145 km, from the Vratnik pass to the Zrmanja river thus creating a bulwark of 15 km between the sea and the continent with countless scattered rocky ridges and sink-holes, cliffs, crests, valleys and summits, many of which reaching above 1,600 m, such as Vaganski vrh summit (1,757 m) and the highest Sveto brdo summit (1,751 m).

National park PAKLENICA – its name most probably originates from the black pine rosin, so called “paklina”, used by the local population as medicine for healing wounds, as light-giving splinter and as primer for wooden boats. It spreads across the littoral slope of the southern Velebit until the zone of the highest mountain ranges (Vaganski, Babin, Sveto brdo) and encompasses the region of vertically etched canyons of Velika and Mala Paklenica. At a relatively small area an extraordinary richness of geomorphological phenomena and forms meet the diverse plant and animal world, attractive landscapes and untouched nature.
