    This Saturday night we went to explore an abandoned sanatorium "Brestovac." Since none of us had been up there, at night it was a bit more difficult to find a location hidden in the bowels of the forest. We ran into the road which matches the description of the location- and we were right! After a few minutes of walking through the woods we were greeted by a gruesome scene of an abandoned sanitarium ...

    850 meters above the sea level, close to the former route of the cable car, the forest offers a horrifying scene. The former sanatorium Brestovac is today a tangle of ruins that have become a training ground for paintball clubs.

    Brestovac, opened in the year 1909, preserves the story of the tragic love between Milivoj and known actress Ljerka Å ram. Milivoj was so in love with her that he had built an entire sanatorium for patients with tuberculosis in order to treat his lady in the fresh air. Although Ljerka was married to another man, he cared for her and her son until she died in his arms, in Brestovac.

    From the love story bloomed one of the most advanced hospitals in the area, with the first X-ray which has functioned almost independently. In Brestovac they produced their own bread, meat, patients were entertained in the theater and spent their days in the library. At one period Brestovac had its own radio station!

    The idyll lasted until the end of the Second World War when partisan units liquidated about 200 patients in a single day, while the staff was spared. Forests around Brestovac still hide the bones of the killed...

    Brestovac was a hospital until the end of the 60s, when it was decided that such a course of treatment is no longer necessary. There has been a change of use and Brestovac since then sinks into oblivion ...
