Northern Velebit National Park Visitors’ Centre - Velebit House
Northern Velebit National Park Visitors’ Centre
Krasno is a small village, where the first thing you’ll notice is the amount of green, forests and charming Velebit foothill homes. Although it is already recognized as a Marian pilgrimage site and a destination with some of the finest Lika cheese, Krasno is still developing and continuously improving the offered contents based on the amazing nature in which it stands. The latest such content is the Northern Velebit National Park Visitors’ Centre „Velebit House“.
„Velebit House“ slogan – Where Nature Resides – couldn’t be more precise if we take into consideration that this beautiful phenomenon has a „rough“ side: geological as well as meteorological. On that note, those who believe in the “soul” of the nature might say it is a defence mechanism through which North Velebit banned the human hand (or foot) to destroy it. If it wasn’t so, perhaps we would not be writing about it today, or even admire it as passionately as we do.
This worthy project has resulted in the „Velebit House“ which enables visitors to learn of the North Velebit’s specific nature and the human activities in a fun and interactive way. You can, e.g. learn the types of clouds, turn shortly into a Velebit bird through 3D glasses, hear the sound of caterpillars, find out which mythical creatures roamed this space, see the mountains and underground creatures creation or go on a speleological adventure inside the House!
Make sure to bring your youngest with you, there are many facilities for them as well. The most entertaining will probably be the search for mysterious „Planinci“. What is it about? We won’t tell, because it is best to see it yourself, right?
So, pick a date, book one of our gorgeous vacation homes and head straight to the lovely Krasno!
