Učka Nature Park

The symbol of the Učka Nature Park is the stone tower built in 1911 on the Vojak peak, the highest peak of the mountain and the whole Istrian peninsula.

Nature Park since 1999

The area of Učka and a part of Ćićarija are protected as nature park since 1999.

Vela draga

The Učka Nature Park contains the geomorphological monument of nature called Vela draga, which is a karst kanyon formed during a long geological period.

The Učka's bellflower

The Učka’s bellflower (Campanula tommasiniana) is a stenoendemic species, which means it grows only on the Učka ridge and nowhere else in the world.

Veli Planik

The highest peak of the hilly plateau Ćićarija is Veli Planik (1272 m), followed by Mali Planik (1265 m) nearby.

Poklon

The heart of Učka Nature Park is the Poklon mountain-pass where the Visitor Centre is situated, built where the old poultry house used to be.

Poklon Visitor Centre

The Poklon Visitor Centre is the new prime destination for all future visitors to the Učka Nature Park. The central place of the Center is a multimedia exhibition, in which, in a modern and interactive way, the natural, cultural and historical values of the Učka Nature Park and the surrounding area are presented, with an emphasis on the needs of its protection and preservation.

The center was built with the reconstruction of an old, devastated, and abandoned farm building in the center of the Park. It is at 930 meters above sea level, which makes it truly unique locally and globally.
The project was co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The published content is the sole responsibility of the Public Institution Učka Nature Park.
