This was a planned visit. First seen from the pass where Route 23 crosses the mountains coming from Žuta Lokva. Well sign-posted so long as you are not looking for the word 'castle' on the road signs - look for 'Nehaj'. There is vehicle access right up to the entrance steps (beware - the gravel is so deep, you might... More

We didn't go into the fort itself but walked round it. It is a really impressive building. The walk up to it was stunning. It is a but of a muscle burning walk but so worth it for the panoramic views. One one side is the sea and the other the town of Senj and mountains. Absolutely stunning!

If you are in the area it's worthwhile to stop here. You can see why this castle was built in its strategic location overlooking the Vinodolski straight with the islands of Krk and Rab both in the line of fire. Haven't gone inside but the park and the surroundings of the castle are worth a stop on their own

Came across this castle while driving through Senj. A nice collection of artefacts on each floor as you make your way to the top of the castle. The views from the top are fantastic.

We enjoyed visiting Nehaj Fortress, situated near Senj with commanding and very beautiful views up and down the coast. The interior is interesting, with some good displays of the costume and weaponry of the people who built the fort and manned it in the 16th century, and some other items used by them too. A lot of the history of... More

The fortress is now used for tourist purposes, and its top serves as an excellent vantage point from which to enjoy a beautiful view of the Croatian coast and islands of Rab, Goli, Prvić, Cres, Krk and the mountains Učku and Velebit. Also, Negligence is the symbol of the town and in a stylized form located on the city's coat... More

Nehaj Castle and city Senj are so nice. They have long tradition. If you want to see Croatian history go to Senj and you can see that. I was there many times.
