If you are a cycling enthusiast and want to enjoy the view from the highest and most beautiful vantage point in Istria, then route no. 5 is right for you. It starts in front of the Poklon mountain hut and takes you higher and higher along a gently rising asphalt road towards Vojak. The coolness of the beech forest and occasional magnificent glimpses of the azure sea in Kvarner Bay should be reason enough for you to master this ascent. And when you reach the top, climb the stone tower, congratulate yourself and feast your eyes and spirit on the sheer beauty of the view. The whole of Istria and even further towards Venice, the Dolomites and the Alps, the whole Kvarner Bay, Gorski kotar, Velebit and the islands – these are all yours in plain view. After enjoying the view, reward yourself with a pleasant descent to Poklon along the same road. When you reach the finish, you deserve top marks.

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.
