Among the most significant speleological structures are the Cerovac Caves, located in the southern part of “Velebit Nature Park ”.
This 3-tier complex (Lower Cave, Middle Cave, and Upper Cave ) features around 7 km of explored channels. The first 700 m of the Lower and Upper Caves have been prepared for tourist visits.
In addition to large quantities of archaeological findings, they are also among the largest discovery sites of the cave bear in Croatia.
This is the place where you can find claw marks on the cave walls that were left by the bear.
Water has worked for thousands of years to create dripstones. It is vital to treat these cave ornaments with care and not touch them, as just a single careless move may put an end to a process that has been going on for decades.
The temperature in the caves is between 5o C and 11o C – warmer clothing, a head cover, and comfortable shoes are recommended.
The Modrič Cave is located next to village with the same name near the National Park Paklenica. The cave was discovered in the eighties of the last century and was closed for visitors until 2004. Even today, the visit to the cave is not a typical tourist visit since there are no steps, paths or lighting inside. Therefore, it is necessary to wear overalls and a helmet with a carbide lamp to walk freely around the cave. Thus, equipped, we will take you through the halls, corridors and gaps of the 840 meters long cave filled with cave decorations, stalactites and stalagmites. Constant temperature in the cave is 15ºC.
