We will pass through urban forests and meadows, and take roads even most citizens of Zagreb are not familiar with. We will have a tour of the ruins of the sanatorium of Brestovac, 500 Horvat's stairs carved in stone, several sources of drinking water, two mountain huts...

Our journey begins in front of the restaurant Dubravkin put. At first, there is a pedestrian path which later turns into a real hiking path, goes through the woods and across meadows, and leads us to the estate of the president of the Republic of Croatia. After a short asphalted section, it reaches the foot of Medvednica, where several roads to Medvednica start. The path will lead us to Queen's Well (an excursion site and a source of potable water), the ruins of the sanatorium of Brestovac and the station of the former cable car, all the way to the top of Sljeme. There, we will have a lunch break at the restaurant on the observation deck. After the break, we will descend to the source Srnec, where the climb on 500 Horvat's stairs begins. We will then continue through the woods and across meadows to the mountain lodge Hunjka. Following our break, we will start heading back towards the city and pass by another source of potable water, another mountain lodge (Runolist) and in the end reach the tunnel in Gračani. We will return to the departure point in the city center by a vehicle from the parking lot near the tunnel.
