The location of Bužim

Wooden house at the edge of Velebit Nature Park, in the hamlet of Dubokolje (1 km of gravel road form the center of the place, the first gravel road after the church right), in a valley surrounded by a dense beech and hornbeam forest, with only a few houses.
Fourteen kilometers northwest of Gospić, in the direction of Smiljan, the road takes you beside Nikola Tesla's birth house and Memorial Center.

About Bužim

Since the times of the Japodi, followed by the rule of the Turks, the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, the Italians, all the way to the present, people have migrated from this area, in more recent times especially to the City of Gospić. Therefore, today, in Bužim there are only some 70 inhabitants, mostly elderly individuals. Most people engage in agriculture and livestock-breeding. In private households, from the good-natured hosts, you can buy domestic products - milk, cheese, potatoes, homemade brandy, meat products - and all of this derived from the unspoiled pastures and meadows of the pristine nature, providing flavors that are significantly different from the flavors of ingredients that we buy everyday in supermarkets in the city.


Domestic eggs, cow cheese, milk, potatoes, Lika sausages and bacon, and plum brandy from the Ćaćić Family Farm, 400 m from the house.
