ADD TO LIST
Lasco de Kosin, where the princes of Kosinj had their seat, is mentioned in the year of our Lord 1071, in the charter of the Croatian king Petar Krešimir IV.
This truly preserved and interesting natural environment is ihabited by a great number of plant and animal species; just to mention the indigenous grape-vines, flax, cornelian cherry, minnow, otter, olm and many others. It should also be mentioned that the Tsar fir in the mountainous region Bovan is the biggest tree in Velebit and the biggest tree of the old continent, and that in the meanders of the Lika river which winds through the fields to its chasm Begovac probably the greatest carps in Europe were caught.
The Kosinj valley is full of miraculously beautiful caves, pot-holes and karst valley, numerous water- wells, pools, springs, and as one of the symbols of Kosinj imposed with its dominant stature the mountain-top Kalić ( 969 metres above sea-level), offering magnificent view of Zavižan, Krasno, Ljubovo, Perušić and a large part of the Kosinj Valley.
