This tour starts at educational trail Pjeskarica, named after flower that grows only in the canyons of Velika and Mala Paklenica and nowhere else in the world.
Walk takes us on a journey through an area of diverse relief forms and lush vegetation. Several mills along the way prove the incredible stories of local’s people life and their survival.
Trail takes us further to the heart of the canyon, surrounded by up to 700 m high cliffs, which is famous croatian and european climbing area with over 450 boulted routes for climbing that attracts hikers and climbers from around the world.
It reveals the secret hidden deep in the heart of the rock – Underground City Paklenica, huge bunkers (2000 square metres) built by the former president of Yugoslavia, Tito in 1950’s.
Not far from the bunkers opens a view of the impressive rock of Anica Kuk (712m/asl), the most famous rock for climbing in Croatia.
