Hiking in Istria
Two expeditions to Učka and Ćićarija
The southern ridge of Učka (peak Sisol) that stretches along the sea is a wooded very rocky and karst landscape with lots of sage and not many butterflies. Ćićarija, on the other hand, has more butterfly habitats that include forests, rare macchia and dry meadows. Due to that, there were many species of butterflies, of which Erebia aethiops was especially numerous.Photos from Učka... Photos from Ćićarija...
