Gospić is a town and municipality in the mountainous and sparsely populated region of Lika, Croatia. It is located near the Lika River in the middle of a karst field. The foundation of the present city consists of two Turkish towers and an old bridge around which, during the period of Vojna krajina (the Military Frontier), the town core developed into the administrative, military and cultural centre. The beautiful surroundings of Gospić, which include the National Park Northern Velebit and Velebit Nature Park, offer numerous possibilities for sports and recreation (horseback riding, paintball, Velebit safari, archery, canoeing through the Lika canyon, hunting, fishing…). In the vicinity of Gospić, in the village of Smiljan, you can visit a Multimedia Centre dedicated to Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest inventors in the world, born in that very village.
