Ucka – Monte Maggiore: “The roof of Istria”


As many different rulers governed Istria so we have many different names for Ucka, which is a Croatian name. Before the Romans it was named Dolphin, the Romans named it Mons Major, the Austrians named it Utschkaberg, Caldiera and Monte Maggiore were the names in Italian. Venetians used to call it also Monte degli Uscochi (Uskok’s Moutain). 

The first Croatian glagolitic inscription named Ucka as “Vucka Gora”, which means the “Wolf Mountain”, and it is possible that from the word Vucka derived Ucka.

In the Ucka’s photo gallery you will find some pictures taken from Vojak. The air was not very clear that day. During your visit you may be luckier :).
