Parks & Nature
“Constructed using the drystone technique, the Premužić Trail is today considered a masterpiece of trail building. The route is laid out so as to provide the easiest possible access to the most rugged and inaccessible sections of north Velebit – Hajdučki i Rožanski Kukovi. The 57 km route runs along the mountain ridge from Zavižan to Baške Oštarije in central Velebit. As there are virtually no steep ascents, the route is also suitable for visitors unaccustomed to mountaineering. Branching off from the Premužić Trail are several paths that climb up to some of the most spectacular peaks of northe and central Velebit - Gromovača, Crikvena, Šatorina and others.”

The main highlight of the area is its mosaic landscape with varied natural, cultural and historic sights. The best choice for leisure activities in a rural setting are the sub-mountainous villages set in picturesque valleys of Northern Velebit - Krasno and Kuterevo.

The main occupation is agriculture and animal keeping, but the villagers are also well known for their wood handicrafts.
