When you come to the Cave park the first thing you must visit is beautifull cave Samograd. Cave Samograd is a true work of nature and a great place to get acquainted with the underground world. The cave is about 345 m long and offers an impressive insight into the many shapes of its glittering rocks. Solid footwear and warm clothes are recommended because the average temperature in the cave is 8°C.
After visiting the cave you can choose to walk on education trails (3 educational trails in the Park) or you can choose to rest on many beautifull sites in park.

Along the trail there are 20 information panels that will tell you a very interesting story of coexistence of man and karst.The trail also leads to Vidikovac, a viewpoint with a rest stop, which offers an unforgettable view of Gospić, the Velebit Mountain and the canyon of the Lika River - the second-largest subterranean river in Europe.
