Mt. Velebit is the great mountain of Croatia. It is part of the national identity, but it is also a huge wall separating the coast from the mainland.

Since 18th century roads have been built in order to conquer the mountain.  Still, the road network is not very dense and most of the roads are unpaved. A trip on Mt. Velebit 19th century, unpaved highways is a time-machine experience.
