About Velebit Nature Park
Instead of presenting the already known facts about Velebit which has been so frequently portrayed, we offer a quotation from the book “Flora of Velebit” (Biljni svijet Velebita) by Sergej Forenbacher. These are the words of an expert on Velebit, whose knowledge and experience gained during his numerous visits to this special world have been passed on to us in the form of a useful and instructive book.
Cerovac Caves, located in the south part of the Velebit Nature Park, are one of the best known and most important speleological features in Croatia.
The complex is comprised of three caves (Lower, Middle and Upper Cave) containing a total of 7 kilometres of explored passages. Available for visitors are the first 700 meters of Lower and Upper Caves.
Cerovac Caves abound in finds from the ancient past. In addition to being an important archaeological locality, the caves are also one of the largest cave bear sites in Croatia where you can see animal markings on rocks which were created by bears rubbing against cave walls.
Cerovac Caves will be closed for visitors untill further notice due to the implementation of the project “Center of excellence Cerovac Caves – sustainable management of natural heritage and karst underground”.
