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.

he name Nehaj comes from the Croatian term Ne hajati [ne xajati], which means Don't care. In the Croatian language this fortress has also other names, which are: Kula Nehaj [kula nexaj], what means Nehaj Tower, and Nehajgrad [nexajɡrad], what means Nehajtown. Beautiful view, nice park around the castle. I wanted to check the castle, as the name of it... More

If there is no raining, then I appreciate this trip to every Senj visitor. It is easy accessible by car, or on foot. It is also possible to park car under the castle and walk shorter, tha path is well maintained and lighted during evenings/nights. There is very nice view to the sae (and close island). There is a muzeum... More

Not a must but if you have time you can go there. There is really nice view, but whole castle is moreless tower and it is not interesting inside. There is some exposition and art gallery.

We stayed over in Senj overnight on our way from Pula to Plitvice with intention of visiting the Nehaj Fortress (I think fortress is a better description than castle). The fortress has been preserved really well and en route to visit there are infromation boards around providing information about different Uskoks which had made an influence during the times of...
