We would meet in the center of the city from where we would drive (around 30minutes) to the start of the hiking trail. From here we would head to the top called "Vojak" (around 2 hours). Vojak is the highest peak of Učka and Istrian peninsula. His scalp is naked with the grassy ridge of the steep side, on whose peak there is a stone viewing tower ten meters high. The tower was built 1911, which is evidenced by the inscription built on the threshold itself. The interior of the tower is decorated as a souvenir shop of the Učka Nature Park, and its terrace, which leads to 30 steps, is one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the whole of Croatia. Near the top there is a telecommunication tower and a military radar for air traffic control. Then we would go back on another route. At the end of the trail its a mountain lodge where we can refresh and eat something. Only an experienced hiker can show tourists the nicest parts that will surely bring them back to visit the city again.
