OUR FIVE UNFORGETTABLE DAYS IN LOVINAC - DAY 1
Our regular guest and lover of Lika and nature, this summer took her granddaughter to get to know the Lovinac region. She decided to share her experience with us!
Lika- love at first sight
This year, too, we are faithful to the habit of spending part of our vacation at the beginning of August in beautiful Lika. Unlike last year, when my friends and I visited spring of the river Una, climbed Tulove grede, Zir, and Dušice at the foot of Sveto Brdo, visited the monastery on Krupa, descended to Kugin most, swam on the Zrmanja waterfalls, and rode bicycles along numerous bike paths in the Lovinac area. This time we took our 8-year-old granddaughter and adapt the program to her.
Nicole always spends her summers at sea, so we wonder how she will accept Lika. Quite an unnecessary dilemma. For her, Lika is love at first sight, which begins with riding a pony next to the cheese factory in Baške Oštarije, and continues in the Velebit camp where a cheerful team of young people from all over Europe learns acrobatic skills at the traditional acrobatic festival in that camp. Nicole tried her hand at walking on a leash with the help of a young Austrian and she is doing very well in this acrobatics. It is therefore understandable that our next stop is Rizvan City Adventure Park. One can choose from a range of attractions, zip lines, climbing cliffs, suspension bridges, a huge swing that rises high above the ground. However, we decide to wait a few more years with these activities.
We arrive in Lovinac where the program to mark the Day of the Municipality is underway. We are greeted by dancing under thousands of stars with great live music. We join the joy of the locals and their guests that lasts until late into the night. And only then did we realize how good it was to book accommodation in time because in Lovinac until mid-September there are no free rooms, apartments, houses.
And the offer is great and varied, from the rooms in the hostel, well-equipped apartments to villas with swimming pools and two beautiful treehouses in the woods in Raduč. Although different from each other, they are the same but also unique in one thing - kind hosts who will welcome you with homemade brandy, freshly baked bread, or freshly picked apples. Peace, quiet, and fresh Lika air are guaranteed. That is amazing after the unbearable heat at the sea area where air conditioners work all night.
