“Velebit house Velebit House is a visitor and information centre for visitors to the Northern Velebit National Park. It is located in the Village of Krasno, one of Croatia’s largest mountain settlements. Its recognisable, modern and attractive content, makes it possible to present the natural and cultural values of the Park throughout the whole year. Here you can find out what to visit and to experience in the Park, Krasno and its surroundings, and buy tickets and souvenirs. In Velebit House you will learn more about the climate, species and habitats, cultural heritage, geology and underground of Northern Velebit. An emphasis is placed on the deep caves as a special peculiarity of the Park. You will become acquainted with the geology and process that created the caves, research history and techniques and gain insight into the specific animal world of the underworld. The special attraction has to be the experience of entering the caves through a special ‘lift’. Mystical and inaccessible to most, in the Velebit House the real underground world can be experienced by almost everyone.”

“Zip line "Pazi Medo" is part of the Bijeli Vrh sport center and is located on the western border of the Plitvice Lakes National Park, 20 km from the state road A1 and covers an area of about 100 ha of sports and recreational zones. The vicinity of the Plitvice Lakes National Park, the Northern Velebit National Park, the Gacka river and city Otočac make this area unique and interesting for many lovers of untouched nature. On the zip line you can book your solo or tandem flight (together) and you can rent a camera and record your selfie and / or panoramic flight. You can also book climbs with an instructor (lead) or without an instructor (boldering) on an artificial rock climbing, a disc golf party, and you can rent bikes and ride the beautiful scenery.

“Beautiful place and more beautiful animals ... bears are wonderful ... if you are passing throug definitely stop and visit. You can help the volunteers to make life easier for these wonderful animals. It is a way to drive, in the middle of the country side. But, worth a visit. These people, all volunteers, help these orphanaged brown bears live a decent life. There are some 800-1000 brown bears left in Croatia. None die a natural death. All human. And Croatia gives out licenses to hunt up to 120 bears a year. More that 10% of the total bear population! This organization needs our attention and our support. And it is lovely to see these gorgeous, peaceful bears.”
