If you ever visit Rijeka or places around it would be shame if you wouldn't take a day and visit the top of Ucka mountain. Along the way to the top of the mountain you arrive at this place. I suggest you to make a stop, you won't regret it. It takes just a few minutes off the road to... More

Veprinac is one of those places that is immediately drawn to man under the skin. The view is breathtaking - the entire Kvarner Bay is in your palm, and when you sat on the lookout in front of the local church one can truly feel the flow of positive energy.

By traveling to Istra, we always take this route back home that leads us to Veprinac! We love to stop by and enjoy the view. They have a small restaurant and hotel that serves amazing cakes so it's double the fun!

We've walked our way up there and back. It took us about 2 hours to go up, and ~1h40min to get back down. There are several marked Opatia-Veprinaс paths which are easy to follow. Have in mind that the paths and (especially) stairs are really old and barely existant in some parts, so choose your footwear wisely. Also, going upstairs... More

The location is just great to have a nice view of Rijeka and surrounding villages and of course to have a very nice picnic. But unfortunately there is not much to do there apart form driving there and enjoying the view.

Takes 28 minutes of bus ride from center of Opatija, 7-8 buses a day. Don't overestimate - it is a small place, museum is just one room although very nice and friendly. They offer a home-made drink for each ticket (adult ticket is 10 kn). Other then in july-august, museum is open only on weekends. Venetian-built church of St. Marc... More
