Ucka Nature Park, Opatija Reviews - Write a Review

  • Out of every national /nature park I visited during my holydays, Učka was the one I enjoyed most. Maybe because it was the first one that I have seen, maybe because it was less crowded then others. We started from the parking lot and went up to the top. The six kilometres are quite hard to hike but the view is worth it.

  • Beautiful park. Clean and taken care of. Would highly recommend climbing the Vojak hill the view is worth the climb.

  • Super beautiful park, really worth it to visit. There are several hiking routes which are really nice. You should also visit the village Mala ucka, it is about halfway the mountain with nice scenery and old ruins/houses.

  • Beautiful nature! I enjoy it for my Sunday walks!

  • Beautiful area. Get away from the coast on the hot summer day.
