At the top there is an old military fort build during Napoleonic wars in the beginning of 19th century. Nowadays it is used as a Museum of Croatian War for Independence. There is also a restaurant and coffee bar where you can refresh yourself before you continue your trip.
The hike continues with a descent down the north-west side of mount which gives you a beautiful view to the port of Gruz and the Elaphite islands.
The path is well marked but rocky, so a pair of good trainers or hiking shoes are necessary for this hiking trip. The whole hike is 9 kilometres long.
