Worth to see if you around. To the right from entrance is beginning of the very quiet and average difficult hiking route.

Long walk to the caves, approx 1.5 hours steep paths but well worth it. 30 Kuna to enter. Tour guide spoke excellent English. Very informative. Take a light layer to wear as its quite cool in the caves.

This place was amazing. The entire Velebit is breathless but the cave was dreamlike. Would reccomend to everyone.

The walk to the cave is quite a hike and you should allow plenty of time and take water. You walk into a massive underground cavern - it is quite a sight. The walk to/from is also spectacular - beautiful does really cover it!

Took us just over an hour to walk up from car park to the cave. Be aware that the first 1/3 of the walk is on very slippery rock even in dry and hot weather. I wore proper walking boots and still felt really uneasy...More

Brilliant cave tour with knowledgeable guide. Beautiful geology and cracking views on the way up and down. A steep and (in may) hot walk but our kids (7 and 9) hot footed it up there pretty well. Wear decent shoes - it's very uneven, particularly...More
