Human monument to people's benevolence. It is remarkable and extraordinary. From parking lot leads you 500m path through forrest and rocky grounds. At some points it is a bit steep but well renovated and poses no problem. 5€ entrance for a walk on the sight that is well marked and explained. Facts are written down everywhere along the way (could... More

This site tells a true story of people going a lot more than the extra mile to care for others. The site is well organized. The info provided tells personal stories, not just dry facts. Access to the site is well done and safe, but not suitable for wheelchairs or baby buggies.

When you just hear Partisan Hospital – you can’t imagine what you will see. You will need 10 minutes of walk over some rocky way. After a small waterfall you will enter to a narrow gorge with more than dozen wooden barracks. Each one had special function and is kept nearly intact or, as good guides explain, was reconstructed for... More

been there in 2001 and last year. it was sad to see the original hospital being washed away by the flood, but they did a really good job rebulding it. the feel how ever was better in 2001, when you knew everything there is original, as left behind after the war. but even the renovated hospital is a nice monument...

I have been there 4 times - this time was the first after the flood. It is still very impressive but I think the renovations were not done correctly - for example they could have worn out the new wood or paint it that it will look older. But again - The place is very moving

One walks through a gorge to see 14 rebuilt cabins. There was a flood in 2007, but based on the writings, they were able to rebuild the site. There are quotes from Franja and others. The history is amazing, and I am glad to see at least 1 of the 120 such hospitals still in existence.

You should visit and a tour guide is recommended for the whole story behind the scene. The path is well maintened, parking is free and 500 meters from hospital. WC is free in the bar on the parking.

We loved this place, parents and kids (13,18) alike. The drive there was beautiful. The walk up the gorge with the written explanations is exciting. The actual hospital is a gem, interesting and concise explanations in every hut with personal anecdotes which bring it to life. It's a fascinating peep into history presented in an authentic way. I highly recommend... More
