Meeting point: Mošćenička Draga

Description: The tour starts in Mošćenička Draga, at the starting point of the Trebišća-Perun history and mythology trail. The trail leads through the hamlet of Potoki to the abandoned hamlet of Trebišća below the peak of Perun. Scientific research shows that these slopes of Mount Učka had very special significance for the first Slavic settlers to reach the Adriatic. This area was chosen as the site for their cult rituals, and the stage for their mythology explaining the annual cycle of life and natural changes, crucial to human existence. With the help of richly illustrated interpretation boards, visitors can learn more about who the Slavs actually are, what we know today about their origins, why they came here, and the beliefs on which life in their community was based.

On the way back to Mošćenička Draga, the tour passes through the hamlet of Sučići.

Duration of the trekking tour: ca. 4:00 h

Difficulty: medium-hard

Did you know?

The griffon vulture feeding site

…that griffon vultures, endangered in Croatia, are often flying over Učka in search for food? Once they were nesting here, but today their northern-Adriatic population is decreasing and in order to help in their preservation, a feeding site was build in Učka Nature Park, popularly called 'griffon vulture restaurants'.

The „Two towers“ trail

…that in 2018 a trail named „Two towers“ was established, which connects the town tower in Lovran with the Vojak tower on Učka? The trail goes through the existing hiking trail, and alongside there are educational boards that inform visitors on the flora and fauna of Učka.

The Roman cheese

…that it is traditional on Učka to produce the „molded“ sheep cheese of distinctive taste since the Roman Empire time? Its production was standardized due to its use in the nutrition of the Roman legions, while today's cheese made on Učka doesn't differ much from its antique ancestor.

Slavic mythology

…that the Mošćenička Draga's canyon used to be the scenery of sacred beliefs for the first Slavic settlers on the Kvarner area? The local toponyms like Perun, Babin grob and Voloski kuk witness about the old Slavic cult of Perun.
