What shall I see

Velebit Nature Park is Croatian greatest mountain range and considering its flora and fauna wealth, it is no surprise it has been listed as a part of the UNESCO’s World Network of Biosphere Reserves. It also represents the natural border which separates the continental and coastal part of Croatia. An important historic site leading across the mountain is Majstorska cesta road. Originally built in 1832, this macadam road was the only connection between inland Croatia and Dalmatia. Another highlight of the tour are Tulove grede (Tulo's Rafters). To some, these white limestone cliffs seem like a crown sitting atop of a great peak. Last but not least, you pass by the emerald snake of river Zrmanja which goes through a 200 meters deep canyon.
