The richness of the cave world Perushich and its surroundings are located in the center of Lika, northwest of Lichko polje and 12 km from Gospich. Perusic was first mentioned in 1487. It was founded by brothers Dominik and Gashpar Perushich, a noble family who came from Dalmatian Zagora. The site was named after them, and they built their defensive tower on the hill, which has different names in the literature - the old town of Perushich, Gradina, but most often called the Turkish Tower, built in the 16th century. The tower had three floors and was surrounded by a thick dry stone wall whose remains appear only in contours. Grabovacha Park (770 m), a unique cave park is located 2.5 km from the center of Perushich. It consists of six caves and one cave: Samograd, Medina cave, Amidzhina cave, Velika Kozarica, Mala Kozarica, Tabakusha and Slipica-jama / Japaga. In Grabovacha there is an invaluable wealth of underground karst buildings, even ¼ of all protected cave buildings in Croatia. Although the town of Perushich is located in the interior of the region, it is gaining increasing tourist importance, especially with those who love the peace and beauty of nature.

As a historian , i was delighted by the story of the two brothers who built their defensive tower on the hill. And that the tower had different names in the literature, of interest was the tower with three floors that is evident up to date through the remains of contours. I ended my visit at the unique cave that has 6 other caves inside.

This place was the best for the active vacation that we needed. We went hiking and exploring the mountains. We came across caves and wild animals in the process. It was amazing how we could walk for a long distance without getting tired. Our guide ensured that we were safe. We had a lovely your.

The best way for me to describe this place is a wonderful place for one to visit to connect with nature, enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the nature in the area. The visit is made even enjoyable with a tour of the cave located in the place, with its beautiful karst formations, a beautiful sight indeed.
