Starigrad

The thousand years of the rapidly flowing streams of the Velika and Mala Paklenica canyons, with their sources high up in the Velebit Mountain, formed at their base the fertile plain and peaceful shore that is the site of the present towns of Starigrad, Seline, and Tribanj.
Starigrad, the center of the Paklenica Riviera, arose on the foundations of the ancient Roman city of Argyruntum. Today it is a lively tourist center with somewhat more than one thousands inhabitants, who exchanged their traditional manner of life in the foothills of the Velebit for life alongside the sea some half a century ago.
The nearness and the easy access to the mountains, particularly through the attractive Velika Paklenica canyon, means that Starigrad is not merely a pleasant seaside resort, but also a traditional gathering place for hikers and climbers, adventurers and scientists, and all nature lovers who come to enjoy the beauties of Paklenica and the Velebit.

NP Paklenica
The Paklenica National Park encompasses the areas of the impressive canyons of Velika and Mala Paklenica, vertically incised into the southern slopes of the Velebit Mountain. Composed of karst features, the Paklenica park abounds in highly varied rocky “sculptures”, which alternate with wooded valleys and mountain meadows. It hides in its bosom the opulent beauty of the underground, as best exemplified by the cave of Manita Peć. Orchids and lilies in green glades, endemic blue-bells on sheer cliffs, dense forests of black pine, and incredibly varied species of butterflies and birds are all only a part of the rich flora and fauna that exist in the Park.
All the full beauties of Paklenica can be experienced only by hiking, and in recognition of this, over 150 km of hiking paths have been made. The particular attraction of this area is the closeness of the seacoast, which allows you to experience all the charms of the mountain and the sea in one place.
Paklenica is also considered to be among the most famous European climbing centres. The climbing area is settled at very beginning of the canyon Velika Paklenica. The climbing site has over 400 climbing routes of various difficulty levels and lengths and the climbing season in Paklenica lasts from early spring until late autumn.

An oasis of sport and recreation
If you wish to have an active holiday, or you have an adventurous spirit, then the Paklenica Riviera is the right place for you. The Paklenica National Park is the ideal destination for those who love walking and hiking, but that is not all. At the very entrance to the Velika Paklenica canyon, you are welcomed by an impressive cliff with possible climbing routes marked – the dream of all climbers and mountaineers. Further afield, the rapids of the upper course of the Zrmanja River are an ideal place for unforgettable rafting and canoeing, while those who prefer to travel on two wheels will be attracted by the numerous bicycle paths. The karst landscape abounds in extraordinary caves, and three can be visited in the immediate vicinity – Manita Peć, Modrič Špilja, and Cerovačka Pećina. But adventures can be expected even on the seacoast, from sailing and rowing, to diving into the depths of the sea.
