Gospić – On the Paths of Velebit and Croatian Greats on Two Wheels
The tourist offer of the center of the Lika-Senj couny has recently been enriched by eight bicycle trails, totaling 397 kilometers. The paths were named ‘Paths of Velebit and the Croatian Greats’ because they connect the birth towns and villages of eminent Croatians, for example, the Croatian politician and patriot Ante Starčević and the world-renowned scientific genius Nikola Tesla, and pass through numerous villages in the vicinity of Gospić, across fields, through woods, to the mountain trails that stretch along Velebit.

Gospić is located on the western edge of one of the largest karst fields in Croatia, Ličko polje, beneath the highest and most beautiful Croatian mountain Velebit, on the crossroads from the north to the south and along the banks of three rivers, Lika, Novčica and Bogdanica. The name Gospić was first recorded in historical documents in 1604.

The city is surrounded by an oasis of nature which as a tourist destination, apart from cycling, offers many opportunities for an active vacation: abseiling, trekking, paintball, jeep safaris, horseback riding, archery, horse-drawn carriage rides, hiking, adventure travels through Velebit, canoe safaris, boat rides through the canyon of Lika and the lake Kruščica, and caving adventures. Fans of hunting, fishing and hiking will in this area certainly experience the true pleasure represented in the preservation of flora and fauna.
