Lika is a mountainous region in central Croatia, roughly bound by the Velebit mountain from the southwest and the Plješevica mountain from the northeast. On the north-west end Lika is bounded by Ogulin-Plaški basin, and on the south-east by the Malovan pass. Today most of the territory of Lika is part of Lika-Senj county and some parts part of Karlovac county and Zadar county.

Major towns include Gospić, Otočac, and Gračac, most of which are located in the karst fields of the Gacka river along with others.

The Plitvice Lakes National Park is also in Lika.

Famous people born in Lika include the world-renowned physicist and entrepreneur Nikola Tesla, Croatian politician Ante Starčević and the painter Miroslav Kraljević.
