he name Nehaj comes from the Croatian term Ne hajati [ne xajati], which means Don't care. In the Croatian language this fortress has also other names, which are: Kula Nehaj [kula nexaj], what means Nehaj Tower, and Nehajgrad [nexajɡrad], what means Nehajtown.

Beautiful view, nice park around the castle.

I wanted to check the castle, as the name of it is similar to my name :D

If there is no raining, then I appreciate this trip to every Senj visitor. It is easy accessible by car, or on foot.
It is also possible to park car under the castle and walk shorter, tha path is well maintained and lighted during evenings/nights.
There is very nice view to the sae (and close island).
There is a muzeum and restaurant (that I did not try).

Not a must but if you have time you can go there. There is really nice view, but whole castle is moreless tower and it is not interesting inside. There is some exposition and art gallery.

We stayed over in Senj overnight on our way from Pula to Plitvice with intention of visiting the Nehaj Fortress (I think fortress is a better description than castle).

The fortress has been preserved really well and en route to visit there are infromation boards around providing information about different Uskoks which had made an influence during the times of Ottoman & Venetian threats. The exhibits within the fortress had information boards in different languages so we were able to pass round and have a good idea of what we were seeing. The boards also presented the history of the town and the fortress itself. Although this was very interesting I did feel that it was a little subjective in that it swayed in great favour of the Uskoks and gave them much praise perhaps instead of historical accuracy (not that I am disagreeing with the events but rather how they were written on the boards).

Overall, we got an hour or so of looking around and them made our way to the roof of the fortress. We chose a wet and windy day so it was a little scary up there but the views were great. It also gave us an impression of what it would be like to be on guard duty up there and suffering the elements!

From the main road it was just a minute to drive there. It had great free parking facilities. Inside there is found a small restaurant serving great food. The personnel hardly had any english language knowledge but were helpful and service minded. Perfect for a lunch break when driving the Croation coastal road. The affordable (55 KN) mixed grill tasted great. There is also a museum if thats your cup of tea.
