Route description

  • The Petrinja promenade starts at the new bridge on the Petrinjčica. It goes upstream along the left coast to the bridge near the hospital and an asphalt road climbs along Ćiro's hill in the direction of "Villa GAVRILOVIĆ". Off this road to the right there is a branch that leads to the cemetery of St. Rok (Grobljanski path). After a hundred meters left there is a separate forest trail, which comes out onto the clearing near the monument to the memory of the executed defenders of Petrinja. From the monument continues the macadam road at the crossroads near St. Elijah's church. Here we turn to the right on the road that leads us towards the facilities of water supply of Petrinja. About 150 meters from the crossroads, there is a trail right downhill through the meadow that goes to the forest. The trail leads into the Popova forest to the spring "Jelen" (a deer in English). Our promenade continues to the crossroads in front of the water supply. To the right there is the 6th August Street, leading towards the city. We continue straight along a macadam road in the direction of the cemetery of St. Trinity. We pass the cemetery and we descend towards the Resort PIGIK. From the crossroads at PIGIK we descend through the Vinogradska Street to the Matthias Gubec Street and we follow it to the new bridge on the Petrinjčica.

Signs

  • The primary signs of the Petrinja Promenade are around red and yellow marks. These marks are used on the European hiking trails, We wanted to distinguish The Petrinja Promenade from the mountain trails.
