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

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 b
asin 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).
