    Used to be nice and quiet but then everyone started talking about it online, residents are getting frustrated with the parking and damage to road/property, it is full of slobs leaving their rubbish all over the beach and around the church area which is a car park/toilet now,
    It is beautiful indeed but much nicer out of Holliday season when it is clean and quiet.

    We stopped here on our trip from Rijeka to Senj. This 1558 Nehaj Fortress sits boldly and starkly alone with a commanding view over the Adriatic to Krk Island.
    Although it was closed, today’s fine weather also gave nice views of the mountains to the back and historic Senj below.

    We stayed for few days in Senj, and were advised by our host to go down to Prva Draga beach...
    Kind of small, crowded, so we went left passed by some large rocks and enjoyed smaller areas with less swimmers and smaller rocks...
    For first time in Senj, not bad, but noting special...

    The clock placed in that place indicates that we are exactly halfway between the Equator and the North Pole and that we are exactly 5 thousand kilometers away from each of them.

    The drive down the coast from Rijeka is so spectacular, we keep stopping to take photos(see). Then, we stop for lunch in Senj, where we meet Marco, a relaxed dog with care-free attitude(see). Soon after leaving Senj, we run into a large sign along the road, announcing the sanctuary and rescue center. I remember that the island of Cres is famous for the existence of the Griffon vultures, a very rare and endangered bird. Needless to say, we stop and have a look at the extraordinary creatures. Admission is Kuna 30 (about $4.50) which is high compared to other attractions in the area, but this is a private rescue center and I can see how much they need the funds.

    We stayed 10 days with the guys from Galathea Diving Center and we really loved it!

    First of all the staff is very friendly, helpful and convivial. The dive masters Bela, Cheebor, Maté and Viktor are very experienced and showed us many interesting dive spots. The "captain" Istwan, who runs the diving center together with his daughter Sara, brought us safely to every diving spot. Sara, the instructor, is very friendly and knowledgeable. She really knows her stuff and can explain everything in detail. She can also give you the reasons and background regarding equipment, diving techniques and limits. Further, she really knows how to motivate and advance her students without any pressure.

    We can absolutely recommend this diving center, especially, if you consider starting to dive or doing any advanced diving course.

    The "Vratnik" fortress is a wonderful monument next to the old main road towards Senj or the Velebit mountain.

    It also marks the first spot where travelers from Lika towards the Adriatic can see the sea. The view is breathtaking. It is a must-visit landmark for every adventurer and traveler.

    Sadly, there are no facilities of any kind available at this location. Also, watch out, as it gets quite windy!

    It is a very old church, having been built during many different stages. Today it is very well renovated making it a cathedral (church) worth visiting.
