"Učka" Ucka by Fiuman

Ucka Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 7 photos

Učka extends for 20 km from the saddle at Poklon (across which the Rijeka-Pazin road passes) to Plomin bay. It appears as a prominent mountain ridge, the peaks of which are lower towards the south (the highest peak Vojak is 1401 metres high). There are numerous springs on both slopes, which are quite vigorous in the winter (Medveja).

Učka represents a considerable climatic barrier forcing air masses to elevate, and thus bringing about substantial precipitation. With its luxuriant vegetation it is quite different from other littoral mountains. In summer you may enjoy the pleasant refreshment offered by Učka's woods and the unique view from its peaks.

Several mountain-tourist and catering facilities have been built on Učka: the climbers' lodging boarding house and restaurat Učka at Poklon, the Hotel INA at the foot of Poklon, and the belvedere on Vojak.
