The “Paklenica” National Park

The “Paklenica” National Park is located between the highest peak of the Velebit mountain and the Adriatic Sea coast. Its most distinctive feature are the attractive canyons of the Velika and Mala Paklenica whose vertical cliffs, more than 400 m high, have made Paklenica a world famous destination for alpinists. Old beech woods, the black pine reserve, second by size in Europe, the mysterious caves, endemic herbs, a great number of animal species ennoble this primeval natural environment.
