    PAKLENICA - National Park (Sunday, 23. July 2017.)

    Working hours: 08:00-20:00
    A breathtaking beauty of the mythical Croatian mountain Velebit reaches its peak in Paklenica National Park. On area of a mere 95 km2 we meet an exceptionally great richness of geomorphologic phenomena, the diversity of flora and fauna, attractive landscapes and intact nature.
    Due to the fact that it has a limestone and dolomite structure, Paklenica is distinguished by the richness of karstic phenomena such as karrens, karst ponds, pillars, natural bridges, pits, caves, etc.
    The largest caves that have rich decorations are Manita peć cave, which is prepared for tourist tours, and Vodarica Pit.
    Paklenica was named after black pine rosin, the so-called „paklina“, that was used for coating boats, and very often in folk medicine.
