excursions

Visitors who are interested in antiquities may take a short walk to the Nehaj fortress. Easily accessible by car are the mountain village of Krivi Put, the mountain pass Vratnik (698 m), offering a magnificent view on the surroundings (the sea and the mountains), hunting grounds in the neighbouring woods - an ideal place for hiking and hunting, as well as Senjska Draga, where tourists may visit a classicst mausoleum from 1848. For those who are keen on Velebit Mountain, the best destination is the mountain lodge Zavizan (with some 50 beds), which may be reached through Sveti Juraj and Oltari. From Zavizan one may take shorter or longer walks to numerous natural rarities (botanical garden, Hajducki i Rozanski Kukovi, Lukina Jama, etc.).




Many entertainment programs and events take place in Senj: winter carnival (in January and February), festival of harmony-singing groups (in July), Senj summer carnival (in August).




Senj, a town and port in the Velebit Channel. The town lies like an amphitheatre on the very edge of the forested cove called Senjska Draga, at the foot of predominantly bare karst slants of Velebit and Senjsko Bilo. The geographical position of Senj is primarily determined by mainland communications; it is the shortest connection between Zagreb or Sisak and the coast, through Karlovac or Topusko to the pass Razvale (884 m) on Kapela Mountain, and from there over Vratnik (698 m) on Velebit; at that point the Dinara mountain barrier is the narrowest. This route from the Pannonian basin and the Adriatic coast has been used since ancient times. Apart from this connection with the region of Posavina, i.e. the Pannonian plains, the position of Senj offers also favourable connections with Bosnia. Senj was often mentioned by Greek and Roman geographers and historians, and at the Roman Tabula Peutingeriana marked as por(tus) Senia. In Roman times it belonged to the province of Illyricum (later Dalmatia) as one of the most important port towns of the northern Adriatic. Chief occupations are farming in the immediate vicinity of the town, livestock breeding, fishing and tourism. Senj is located at the intersection of main roads (M2) and Karlovac - Brinje - Senj (M6.02) and Senj - Otocac - Gospic (M5).
