Rest Area Marune
REST AREA MARUNE is located at the 227th kilometer of Zagreb-Dubrovnik highway.
Facilities found at Marune rest area comprise a four star hotel (closed for good – read a story bellow), picnicking tables (yes) and restrooms (non-existent).
At the Marune Rest Area an attraction of completely different kind awaits you. This is the hotel “Velebit Queen”, built at the very southern entrance to the Sveti Rok tunnel. The problem is that this is also the location with the strongest winds, sometimes of hurricane force. But the “Velebit Queen” did not collapse because of the winds; it went broke because of the millions of debts of the over-ambitious builder … In any case, it is worth to see this architectural wonder that has never worked, and will never host a single guest.
