All about the Brestovac Sanatorium Hiking Tour.

Brestovac was once a natural sanatorium used to treat many pulmonary diseases. In the beginning of 20th century in Kingdom of Croatia and Slavonia there were very few doctors and the level of hygiene was pretty low. The tuberculosis-induced mortality was really high so the initiative was made and Brestovac sanatorium received its first patient on 22. May 1909. Beautiful natural sanatorium today lies in ruins since no actions of reconstruction were ever made. Trail is considered low to medium level of difficulty and the length of the trail is around 6,5km. Time of ascent to the top is around 3h depending on individual physical state. During the tour we will make brief stops for refreshment and on the top of Sljeme you can enjoy in astounding views and prefect Croatian cuisine.
