The idea for the eco-centre "Oaza mira" (Oasis of Peace), positioned in the tame valey of the Sanica, came founded on the recognisable brand that this place acquired by being proclaimed 'the first tourist place' in former Yugoslavia.
Surrounded by the slopes of the Grmec mountain, with its three natural lakes, two mountain rivers and innumerable streams. Even then Sanica was recognised as a place with a unique natural surrounding.
In such ambiance, at the source of stream of Trebunj and looking over the Sanica panorama, less than 500m from the river Sanica and its fly-fishing beats, there sits eco-centre "Oaza mira".
The centre is at the very entrance to the town and is reached by taking a right turn up a tarmacked road, that used to lead to a railway station and its narrow gauge tracks, operated at the time by the popular 'Ciro' as the locomotives used to be known.
The railway is gone and its route has been turned into a mountain bike track, which passes a mere 100m from the eco-centre.
