TOWN SENJ AND MOUNTAIN VELEBIT
Senj is located where the mountain’s edge is washed by the sea, where intact nature, clean air and crystal clear waters invigorate the body, and where history and culture foster renewal of the spirit. It’s a town renowned for its eventful history, cutural heritage, literature and tradition. Senj is the centre of a region covering more than 650 km2 and encompassing numerous small towns and villages dotted along the shore at the foot of Mount Velebit (Sv. Juraj, Lukovo, Klada, Starigrad, Jablanac, Stinica and Prizna) or higher up in the mountains of Velebit and Kpela (Krasno, Krivi Put, Stolac, Vratnik and Senjska Draga). The region’s areas of natural heritage preservation are the Velebit Nature Park and Croatia’s youngest national park – Northern Velebit.
