Trail of Stone Stairs


The Trail of Stone Stairs winds through the wooded area around the four largest towns in the municipality of Vinodol – Bribir, Drivenik, Grižane-Belgrad and Tribalj. The lovely looped walk begins and ends in the centre of Grižane. It is about 4.5 kilometres long and, in addition to 1300 steps carved out of stone, features a series of cultural and historic monuments and several rocks suitable for rock climbing. Besides being a great recreation spot, the trail is of great importance as a tourist attraction as well, revealing interesting stories from recent past, as it served as the main way connecting the wooded areas and the four small towns. People living in the villages in the municipality of Vinodol used the trail for carrying grapes, figs, cherries and salt in World War II which they exchanged for corn, potatoes and beans in the Gorski kotar area. Every day they would cross this arduous path to exchange their produce for other basic commodities.
The walk passes through the village of Gobići, the birthplace of the celebrated Croatian miniature artist Julije Klović (1498-1578) known worldwide as the Michelangelo of miniature. From Gobići it leads up to the cutting of Mt. Klamaruša and two attractive caves and comes out on the very top of the mountain, at an altitude of 500 m above sea level. It is connected to the Litica hiking trail leading back to the other side of the village of Grižane.

The Love Path

The captivating name has won this path many admirers, but its beauty is not falling behind. The path linking Crikvenica and the green inland area of Vinodol displays many cultural and historical attractions.
The name Love Path probably dates back to 1930s when couples in love started to visit this romantic environment in ever increasing numbers.
It is assumed that the path is the work of engineer Ante Premužić. It is lovely in so many ways because it has everything: pine trees, aromatic Mediterranean plants, a castle built in the late Romanesque period and lovely views of the Vinodol Valley, Kvarner and the Velebit Channel. Obviously, to those who are in love, have been in love or are just about to fall in love the symbolic meaning of its name will be enough to come here and enjoy this stunning natural setting.
