Did you know that, when you reach peak of Sveti Jure (St. George), in the winter, after the rain and north wind of bura clears the air, you can see Italian coast (some 200-250 km distance) across the Adriatic! Amazing to see. Throughout whole year, at the back of the mountain, at some distance, lies Bosnia and Herzegovina. Tree countries... More

We went three years ago by hired car high up to the highest point Sveti Jure. Interesting narrow road with lots of curves, better be a talented driver! Horses and cows on the road. Marvellous views until. ca 1400 m. Then we went into the clouds and couldn't see anything any more. But with a sunny day the views from... More

When you are in the bottom of the mountain overlooking from one of many pebble beaches on the Makarska riviera, you have no clue as to how majestic this nature park is. When we went to check the top, the view overlooking the entire Adriatic sea and islands is breath-taking and majestic. One has no idea how small we are... More

2nd highest mountain of Croatia, and the highest you can drive with car right to the top (antenna station). A breathtaking view all road long. It's EXTREME! The road is narrow, mostly one band with meeting points along the way, no guard rails... FOR ACROPHOBIANS ABSOLUTELY NOT RECOMMENDED! Not as passanger as well. As a driver you'll need steady hand,...

Our first full day in Makarska took us to the Nature Park Biokovo. Our party of 6 adults and 1 toddler reached the park entrance after a pleasant ride from our vacation house. Our first stop was the parking area at Vosac, and it's 15 minute hike up to the top. A fantastic view over Makarska and the outlying islands... More

We went up Biokovo on a day where the weather wasn't quite right for beach lounging... unfortunately the very top (Sv Jure) was inside the clouds, so the view wasn't what it could have been... despite that, we got some great views on the way up, stopped to say hello to the horses roaming the mountainside, and had a good...

We've been hiking from Makarska. First hill was Vosac with beautiful view on coast line. Than we walk to Svati Jure from the top you can see mountains in Bosnia and also a bit of see.
