The Učka and Ćićarija mountain range

Close to the sea, yet a world of its own, stands the mount of Učka with its highest peak Vojak, 1401 m.

There you will find a tower with a fantastic panoramic view. This nature park is recommended for hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, mountaineering, hang gliding, horse riding, etc. The Vela Draga trail is one of the most famous ones. It leads through a magnificent canyon that is protected as a geomorphological monument of extraordinary importance. The chances are that, along the path, you will stumble upon some of 1300 different species of the Učka Nature Park flora. It’s quite an impressive number for such a small area. What makes it more interesting, it abounds in both continental and Mediterranean species.

The pass between the mountains of Učka and Ćićarija is called Poklon (922 m) or the bow since this place offered the pilgrims of Istria a beautiful view of the Kvarner Gulf and the Trsat shrine. Therefore, they bowed here to the Blessed Virgin Mary in Trsat, Rijeka.

Explore Učka and Ćićarija, find out what korito means while heading to it from a small village of Brgudac and enjoy fresh drinking water at its source.
