    Hiking in Biokovo Mountains

    Up in the mountains (close to Vosac)

    Just above Makarska, there is one of the highest Croatian mountains - Biokovo massive, with the mountain of Sveti Jure (1762) as the highest point. Hiking from Makarska to Sveti Jure can be done in a day. Following the LP advice, we located at the east border of Makarska St. Mark Church, and took the street Put Makra uphill. You cross the Adriatic highway over the bridge, and then follow the road till the village of Makar (20 minutes). On the way, markers (a red circle with a white center) appear which then lead you to the path to the mountain Vosac (1425 m, at least 2h30), almost all the way above the Makarska Bay. From Vosac, St. Jure is signposted as 2h30, and we did not attempt it. If you are only interested in Sveti Jure, there is a road which starts from Makarska and goes around the mountain almost all the way.
