Lika

Lika is a region in Lika-Senj county uniting natural, cultural and historical diversities, a spacious basin inside a mountain frame with many fields and rivers vanishing in chasms. Lika’s identity can be seen in the mountains and forests – these natural resources are what makes Lika special and even that is an understatement. Velebit’s untouched nature, picturesque villages and scenery are just a part of what you should experience. Relax in one of our vacation houses, try hiking or walks on Velebit, pass through Gospić and surrounding places on bicycles in search for landmarks as well as refreshments for the body and soul. The climate barrier Velebit creates gives you the opportunity to enjoy the green springs and romantic falls, idyllic snowy winters with family and friends and warm summer days with chilly nights enabling you to sleep soundly.

Sports & nature

The most significant Croatian mountain is surely Velebit, the whole of it being a nature park. Velebit's beauty, nature monuments, strict reservations and two national parks: Paklenica and North Velebit allow you to enjoy hiking, excursion and explorations in the fresh Lika air. If you want to take a walk by the coast, you can walk by Lika river (emerging in foothills of Velebit) or visit the Kruščica lake in the heart of Kosinj. Between the Lika stream and Perušić, Cave Park Grabovača is located. In Grabovača, you can enjoy a bicycle ride, a picnic with friends and family or see the park's biggest attraction, Samograd cave. Samograd is an extremely beautiful and rich with cave jewellery and protected as a geomorphological culture monument. Pick your vacation house in Lika, relax and enjoy your adventure.

Culture and history info

Nature is not the only thing Lika has to offer – cultural and historical heritage is quite diverse. Known fact is that Lika area was inhabited even in the Stone age. Many archaeological findings are displayed in the Museum of Lika Gospić under which protection is the Nikola Tesla Memorial Centre in Smiljan, dedicated to the great scientist. Besides Tesla, in Gospić, or to be more correct, in Veliki Žitnik, the great politician, Ante Starčević was born. The whole Lika area has cultural monuments witnessing its turbulent past. Two Turkish (Ottoman) tower remains- that of Agha Alić and Agha Senković- are thought to be the oldest buildings in Gospić and the foundations of the nowadays city. First Croatian printed book was printed presumably in Lika as well – the sight of the printing office can be seen in Kosinj village. Explore Lika and find for yourself what kind of history and cultural heritage Lika and its inhabitants hold.
