It would do you good to stop for a while, to rest and refresh. We recommend walking. So, let's walk together. We'll show you our town which will, for certain, stay in your memory forever.
The name of Senj, SENIA, is recorded in many historical books dealing with science, culture and art. It has always been mentioned as an example of brave fight against all conquerors.
THE TERRITORY OF SENJ occupies the area of 658 square kilometers with the population of 8.500. 6.000 people reside in the town itself.
The rims of its territory run along the 60 km long sea-coast, which offers you numerous bays and beaches with transparent sea, and 40 km along the Mountain Velebit.
And now THE TOWN. You'll certainly get to like Senj, not only because of its beautiful Fortress Nehaj built in 1558 to protect its citizens from the Turkish and Venetian attacks, but because of its charming squares, narrow streets and towers, as well. You'll be hearty welcomed by the citizens of Senj who are known for their hospitality and good- mood.
Down there, at the bottom of the mountain slope, where Velebit kisses the Adriatic Sea, are some little, quiet places which, because of their heavenly peace, attract tourists from big towns and cities who are seeking complete and ultimate rest. These places are:
Sv. Juraj, Lukovo, Klada, Starigrad, Jablanac, Prizna and many others.
