Jablanac Shipwreck

Historical Place Croatia, Croatia

The remains of a sunken WWII military ship wreck visible through clear water Jablanac Shipwreck

Jablanac is a village in Lika-Senj County, Croatia, located on the Adriatic Sea underneath the Velebit mountain, overlooking the island of Rab. The village used to have a ferry port that connected it to Rab, but that moved up the coast to Stinica in July 2012. The population of Jablanac is 83 (2011) and it is located in the municipality of Senj (which lies to the north). The village also boasts the lowest mountaineering hut in the whole of Europe which, at 20 m above sea level, overlooks where the ferry used to dock. There is a newspaper kiosk and a fruit stall. Bread vans visit the village most days. Local attractions include Zavratnica inlet where you can see a sunken military ferry wreck from WW2 and stunning scenery. Nearby is the Velebit mountain and the Northern Velebit National Park.
