Majstorska road

Through the territory of Jasenice Municipality goes a 24 kilometre long section of Majstorska road (total length is 41 km), representing a significant resource of architectural and historical heritage.

Majstorska road is a unique panoramic road presenting a trans-Velebit road, or connection between St. Rok in Lika with Obrovac in Dalmatia. It was inaugurated on October 4th in 1832. Significance of this road was reflected by post and goods exchange made possible by it.

At the time when this road was built its construction represented a distinctive step forward because of building techniques in difficult conditions, so the name of the road derives from German word “Meisterstück” which means Masterpiece.
