Šija Scouts Hut
The hut is located in the Košuta range, more precisely on the mountain pasture of Šija. The buildings of the former guardhouse have been converted into a pleasant mountain hut by Scouts. It can serve as a starting point for approaches to nearby summits (Veliki Vrh, Kofce Gora, Malo Kladivo, Kladivo or traversing Košuta to Košutnikov Tower (Turn)) or as a pleasant place to stop and eat while exploring the mountain pastures that lie along the slopes of Košuta.
