A Most Tricky Scenic Road to Vratnik Pass

Vratnik Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 700m (2,300ft) above the sea level located in Lika-Senj County, Croatia.

Tucked away in the Dinaric Alps, the road to the summit is totally paved. It’s called D23 road, part of the Jozefinska cesta road. This scenic road was already in use during Roman time as a salt road and became important for timber and other goods in the Middle Ages.

The drive offers great views of the islands of the northern Adriatic. The pass is 22.9 km (14.22 miles) long, running west-east from Senj, a town on the upper Adriatic coast to Žuta Lokva, in the foothills of the Mala Kapela and Velebit mountains.
