Paklenica guide

The national park Paklenica has two canyons: Mala (Small) and Velika (Big) Paklenica at the southern slopes of Velebit, the longest Croatian mountain. Paklenica was proclaimed a national park in 1949 to protect the largest forest region in Dalmatia. The park consists of wooded valleys, rocky parts and mountain meadows. Paklenica abounds with flora and fauna – lilies, orchids, endemic zvončići (bells), black pine, various species of birds, butterflies and more species. The beauty of the underground is best described by Manita peć cave. The beauty of the park can be experienced along trails and paths. There is a climbing area up to 400 meters, which offers a breath-taking view of the attractive landscape.
