  • Nice fresh air, conveniently located 30 min from Zadar. Not far from the bunkers opens a view of the impressive rock of Anica Kuk (712m/asl), the most famous rock for climbing in Croatia.  more »
  • Beautiful leafy Park also for short hike 1 3 hours. Parking can, if too much of the day is going on to the waiting game will be. Because we only were at the 13: 00 here on a not so sunny day... We had luck relatively far forward (500 meters) before entrance to the Park a place to get otherwise it can be ever 2-3 KM). Suitable for children aged 8 and joy of hiking have most beautiful ravines and streams, to the stay. Good shoes! and even at least what to drink take as partially already thirsty the climb (stairs). The menu in the first hut was not very extensively what I can understand of course delivery (same way with donkey, etc.).
