Hrastovačka gora (Hrastovica Hill), 415 m - General information


  •  This is a local mountain for the citizens of towns Petrinja and Sisak. It was relatively unknown to hikers but now it is part of The Croatian Hiking Trail (Hrvatska planinarska obilaznica) The mountain hut is ready for opening and there are many signed trails.
  • Hrastovačka Gora (also called HrastovIčka gora, too) is a low forested mountain (max altitude is 415 m), placed a few kilometers SW from Petrinja (about 60 km S from Zagreb).
  • It is named after the village of Hrastovica, placed at its foot. The origin of its name is a little controversial because there are two names in Croatian: Hrastovačka Gora and Hrastovička Gora. The first one is used by local people and the other is more frequently used in older references.
  • Additional information about The Hrastovica Hill can be found in excerpt from the hiking guide "Upoznajmo Hrastovičku goru" written by Đuro Priljeva and Marko Kovačević. The guide is used for the basis of trails description through The Hrastovica Hill. It contains a brief overview of the history of Petrinja.
