No Croatian mountain has become so firmly a part of traditional legends and stories so firmly as Klek has. A steep mountain close to the town of Ogulin attracts from afar and with its impressive form and size puts into shade everything that surrounds it.
According to a traditional tale, the summit of Klek is a gathering site of witches who are a sort of a symbol of Klek and Ogulin.
It is the custom of hikers in Croatia to mark the beginning of the New Year by gathering on Klek on the first Sunday in January. This year they did it for the 24th time in a row.
Up to 500 mountaineers from all over Croatia gathered at the cradle of Croatian mountaineering, and for some, it was an opportunity to get a license to operate and fly a broom! Croatian Mountain Rescue Service Ogulin was in charge of their safety and everyone had a great time.
