Senj, Croatia - holiday information

Senj, Croatia – visitor information

The little town of Senj attracts visitors with its charming squares, narrow streets, towers, and particularly hospitable citizens. A symbol of Senj is bora, a strong cold wind that has a positive side og blowing away all the clouds, so Senj is one of the sunniest Croatian cities. On the hill above the town you can see the Fort Nehaj, a military fortification from the 16th century, and at the sole entrance to the town stands the beautiful church of St. Mary from the 18th century, while in the old town  among the narrow streets hides the Cathedral of the Assumption from the 12th-century. We need to accentuate the rich cuisine of the Senj Riviera where the blend of Mediterranean and mountain influences can be sensed. In Senj we want to mention the restaurants Kresimir , the restaurant Riva, the restaurant Zagreb , in the settlement Sv. Juraj the restaurant Hazienda, and in Karlobag: Amphora tavern and restaurants : Bag, Delfin and Florida, while we also recommend you visit the site Baske Ostarije because of its rich gastronomic offer.
