Senj (on Roman time Senia) is a city with a tempestuous and rich history. In Middle Ages it was the most important seaport and trade center in the north Adriatic sea. In the 16th and 17th Century it was the core of courageous resistance to Venetians and Turks. Senj is the city of old warriors and famous writers. Numerous cultural and historical monuments from the Romantic and Gothic period and archeological remains give the evidence of a tumultuous past of the oldest city in the upper Adriatic.
