At a first glance, the maritime slope of Velebit range looks like a stone desert, unsuitable for human occupation. This appearance is misleading, however, since the area has been settled some ten thousand years ago, if not earlier. Ancient inhabitants left behind many traces of their presence, their history and prehistory. Journey through the past starts from prehistory, from hunter-gatherers of the final Ice Age, through Neolithic shepherds, Liburnian chiefs, Roman rule and the troubled times of the Middle Ages.

Today, Starigrad is a place with about one thousand inhabitants, which mostly live from tourism, home made products and fresh foods. The place is popular for its exciting combination of mountains and sea. The proximity of the Paklenica national park is very favorable. Thats a reason more for climbers, hikers and runners to spend their vacation here.
The range of accommodation in Starigrad Paklenica is varied. You can find accommodation usually in hotels, on campsites, in apartments, rooms or pensions.
