Fužine

Fužine - the most famous tourist center in Gorski kotar

Fužine is a picturesque mountain town and probably the most famous tourist center in Gorski kotar, and for a reason!

It is located at 730 m above the sea, between the sea and the mountains, and is well-connected traffic-wise.

Fužine was founded in the 17th century when the Zrinski family began to dig iron ore here.

Fužine is known for its excellent offer of mountain delicacies as well as New Year's Eve party at noon.

What to visit in Fužine?

Most famous sight in Fužine is the lake Bajer and cave Vrelo.

Among the cultural sights is the church of Saint Anthony of Padua, which is the largest sacral object in the region of Gorski kotar.

For a family outing, we also recommend visiting the City of Roswell, a movie set where a film about Winnetou was made.

 

Lake Bajer and cave Vrelo

There are as many as 3 reservoir lakes in the vicinity of Fužine and the lake Bajer is the oldest one. A 7 km promenade runs around Lake Bajer, ideal for cycling. There is a tourist train (except in the winter months).

Lake Bajer is located in the submerged valley of the Ličanka river and is 2 - 7 m deep.

A must-see attraction is the Vrelo cave, with a water source within the cave. The fact that this cave has no stairs makes it very unique.

The cave is about 300 m long and is extremely rich in stalactites and stalagmites, making it a popular tourist destination. Its age is estimated at 3.5 - 4 million years, and it was discovered by accident when the Bajer reservoir was built in the middle of the 20th century.

About 20 minutes should be set aside for the tour. In summer, bring a jacket because the temperature in the cave is around 8ºC.

Jezero Bajer i špilja Vrelo

U okolici Fužina nalaze se čak 3 akumulacijska jezera, a jezero Bajer je najstarije. Oko jezera Bajer vodi šetnica duga 7 km, idealna za vožnju biciklom. Postoji turistički vlakić (osim u zimskim mjesecima).

Jezero Bajer smjestilo se u potopljenoj dolini rijeke Ličanke, a duboko je 2 - 7 m.

 

Nezaobilazna atrakcija je špilja Vrelo, s izvorom vode unutar špilje. Činjenica da ova špilja nema stepenica čini je vrlo jedinstvenom.

Spilja je dugačka oko 300 m i izuzetno je bogata stalaktitima i stalagmitima. Njezina se starost procjenjuje na 3,5 - 4 milijuna godina, a otkrivena je slučajno kada se polovicom 20. stoljeća gradilo akumulacijsko jezero Bajer.

Za obilazak treba izdvojiti oko 20 minuta. Ljeti ponesite jaknu jer je temperatura u spilji oko 8ºC.
