SljemeSljeme is the highest peak (1033 m asl) of the Medvednica mountain in the central Croatia, just north of Zagreb. The peak Sljeme (summit) is often used to refer to the entire mountain.The name Medvednica can be translated as "bear mountain", and there are other toponyms on the mountain using the kajkavian dialect term medved (bear, standard Croatian "medvjed"), notably Medvedgrad, a medieval castle on its southwestern edges. Most of the area of Medvednica is a nature park, a type of preservation lesser than a national park. There are three ways to reach the mountain: by car, on foot (there are numerous mountain paths) or by gondola lift, which starts from the Gračani neighborhood. The cable car has run since 1963, and takes four people, with a 23 minute journey time. Because of its proximity to Zagreb, Medvednica has many visitors, especially during weekends.
