River Lika

River Lika is Lika’s largest sinking river which emerges in Velebit foothills and flows through Lika field. With the length of 78km, it is the second largest sinking river in Europe and has tributaries of four rivers. From its spring, it flows to Kosinj village, where its journey was cut off by a dam resulting in flooding of most of the canyon and the Kruščica village (today’s Kruščica lake).

River Lika’s flow is impressive for the gorges and cliffs it passes. One of the architectonic landmarks is the Kosinj Bridge built in a way to fit into the environment and withstand the rushes of the stubborn river. Kosinj’s locals have adjusted to the river which cuts them off from the rest of the world on one hand, and has been giving them rich, fruitful ground for centuries on the other.

Exploring this part of Lika is definitely worth the effort!
