Paklenica National Park

One of the main reasons for visiting Paklenica National Park are its relief forms, among which the valleys of Velika Paklenica and Mala Paklenica, which at some points turn into impressive canyons, certainly stand out. Mala Paklenica is characterized by a much more challenging territory than Velika Paklenica, which explains it being visited by a smaller number of occasional visitors who are eager to experience the true nature. Among the discovered and explored speleological phenomena, the ones that stand out are Manita peć and Jama Vodarica, which delight with their beauty. The plant life of the Park is extremely rich and diverse. More than 900 plant species grow at a distance of just a few kilometres, with beech and black pine forests being of the highest value. Birds of prey, on the other hand, are of particular value to the ornithological world. The canyon area of Velika Paklenica and Mala Paklenica is home to the only land nesting ground of griffon vultures, magnificent creatures whose wingspan reaches up to 3 meters. Being that Velika Paklenica is known to allow for both the easiest and most difficult climbs, the Park generously welcomes numerous climbers from different parts of the world throughout the year.
