The lake is cryptodepression, which means that the surface is above the sea level, while the bottom is below the sea surface. The lake is a depth of 2 to 5 meters, and since it is close to the sea, underground waterways penetrate the lake and make it mildly salty. The lake collects many rainwater and water from the surrounding rivers.

In the Vransko Lake Nature Park there are also old buildings such as the late antique Towers of Osridak dating to the 4th century. The tower served as military observation and shelter from bad weather.

It is interesting to note that Paklenica was first proclaimed National Park in 1929, but according to the then laws, the proclamation should be reviewed every year - which has not been done, and for years Paklenica has been without the status of National Park.

On July 7, 2017, the Paklenica National Park was also included on the UNESCO World Heritage list in Europe, as part of the common world heritage of 13 countries called "Beech forests in the Carpathians and other areas of Europe".

Apart from the pines, the Paklenica forests are rich in beech (Fagus sylvatica), and there is also a birch curve here. Paklenica, by its surface, owns the largest preserved forest complex in Dalmatia. More than half the park is covered with vegetation, and the rest is karst relief.

Interestingly, he used to serve as a pillar of shame in a single period, as evidenced by the chains from that period.
