Fuzine the tourist destination in Gorski Kotar A- A A+

Fužine is the most popular tourist destination in Gorski Kotar, the so-called green heart of Croatia. As a result of routes that have existed in the area since ancient times, a tradition of engaging in excursions has always been popular with visitors and locals alike.

Today, Fužine has added one more thing to its offers. It takes about half an hour to reach the coast so you can easily return and spend the night in Fužine, at an altitude of 730m, where you breathe the invigorating air of the highlands. Don't forget you can also have a swim in two nearby lakes, where fishing is yet another option.

The clear waters, whose surface reflects the century old forests and the surrounding hills, are only 22km away from Opatija, Crikvenica and Krk.

Accommodation is available in hotels, B&Bs, private rooms and apartments.
