  • This was an organised trip up the mountain as a half day excursion,and it was well worth the money.Lots of hairpin bends but when you reach the top, wonderful views of the Markaska Riviera. 
  • I went on a sunny day from Makarska in the direction of Vosac. Despite the heat, the way seemed not too strenuous (walking tour 5 - Makarska - Makar - Kruska - Strbina - Vošac), there were only two during the approximately 1200 metres I got marks. I had to reverse approximately in 30 minutes to the Hill Vosac - because my water supplies only to 0, 7 l has fallen (I took almost 3 liters). Anyway, I've had very nice views of the Harbor, Makarska and its surroundings (see pictures). Next time I'm taking more water.

  • Luckily drove his friend on these narrow twisting roads up after the mountain and national park. In all honesty, I thought it was exciting with a bit of steep slopes and narrow passes. However, the asphalt all the way and bring it in a quiet pace, it is absolutely no danger. The National Park contains different types of environment and passes inter alia old settlements. The reward at the top is awesome with a view to Italy, weather permitting. Croatia's highest situated Chapel one can find at the top. The tip of the antenna mast is said to be the highest peak of Croatia. That's right, we met both pedestrians and cyclists who did the distance in about 4 hours (one way). Another year we are investing there.
