Alpine and Recreational Climbing
Paklenica National Park is the most visited Croatian climbing center, well known throughout the country as well as outside its borders, and both in terms of organization and quality, and is included among the top European climbing areas.

This climbing center is particularly charming due to its proximity to the seacoast, and as such, the Paklenica Riviera is an ideal place to combine climbing and water sports.
The history of alpinism in Paklenica began long ago, in 1938 when Dragutin Brahm attempted to climb Anića kuk. Tragically, he died in the attempt. Two years later, S. Breovački and M. Dragman completed Brahm’s mission. The second phase of alpinism began in 1955 when the most difficult slope of Anića kuk, Mosoraški, assessed as a V+ slope, was conquered. From 1960 to 1970, many faces including the Velebitaški, Klin, Funkcija, Karabora and Ljubljanski were climbed. Today, there are some 400 equipped climbing routes of varying difficulty and length, providing something to satisfy every climber.
The main climbing season in Paklenica begins in spring and lasts until late autumn.

Each year, at the end of April and beginning of May, an international alpine gathering is held, with competitions in big wall speed climbing. For more information, see
