Cerovac caves

Located in the southern part of “Velebit Nature Park”, among the most renowned Croatian speleological structures are the Cerovac Caves. This 3-tier complex (Lower Cave, Middle Cave and Upper Cave) features a total of 4 km of explored channels. The Upper Cave is 1200m long, the Middle Cave is a lot shorter, and the Lower Cave is 2400 long. These caves abound in archaeological traces from the distant past, and they are also among the largest discovery sites of the cave bear in Croatia. Cave jewellery, bronze axes from the Pleistocene, human bones and the like were found in the caves. They were discovered during the construction of the railway track from Gračac toward Cerovac, and named after this station. The Cerovac Caves have been protected by law as a geological nature monument since 1961. The temperature in the caves is between 5⁰C and 11⁰C, so warmer clothing is recommended.
