Krivi Put is a village located in a forested area near Senj, in Lika-Senj County, Croatia. The name of the settlement means "wriggly way".

Krivi Put is one of the most famous resorts in the Bunjevci-populated areas; its earliest settlers founded the village in 1605, favouring it as good grazing land for their cattle. The nearby villages of Veljun, Serdari, Alan, Krmpote and Podbilo were also founded by Bunjevci settlers around the same time. The village celebrates an annual holiday on August 5.

Today a majority of Krivi Put's population are farmers. Famous former inhabitants include Rudy Perpich (the former governor of Minnesota)[1] and the parents of Croatian Poglavnik, Ante Pavelić.
