The hike to the Partizan Hospital Franja goes trough a difficult terrain that provided a natural safety feature to the wounded partisans and people caring for them. You learn along the way what safety measures have been necessary in order to keep the location secret...More

This was our second visit, we returned with our daughter and her friend. Visiting this place evokes many emotions. It gives one an understanding of the hardships, dangers as well as camaraderie during the war.
