about velebit mountain

Velebit, the longest mountain range in Croatia; stretching from the cove of Senjska Draga to the upper course of the Zrmanja river, in the total length of about 145 km. Northern Velebit does not have the shape of a typical mountain ridge or crest; it consists of several ranges of ridges and crests, separated from each other by deep karst ravines and valleys. Southern Velebit has a simple aspect of a narrow high mountain range with clearly defined bare littoral and forested continental slopes. Major peaks of Velebit lie in the central part, east of Starigrad.

These are; Vaganski Vrh (1,753m), the highest peak of Velebit and Sveto Brdo (1,753m). Sotheast of Sveto Brdo, the massif of Velebit is lower. Here are also the most important passes Oštarijska Vrata and Prezid. The oldest pass on Velebit is Mali Alan, which has lost its importance. Caves are amply represented in the relief of Velebit, the best known being Cerovacke Spilje near Gracac and the caves of Paklenica near Starigrad. Littoral slopes are the oldest inhabited areas on Velebit. The only larger place on the coast is the town of Senj. The Lika slope and the mountain itself are not so much populated. According to its size, natural features and role in the Croatian history and culture, Velebit is the most famous Croatian mountain range. Velebit can be reached from the coastal region and from the region of Lika. There are several lodging facilities on Velebit itself.
