Brestovac Sanatorium, Zagreb Overview

Built in 1909, the Sanatorium has been one of the best tuberculosis care centres of its time in the whole of Europe. The ruins of this sanatorium now hide amid the woods of Zagreb.

Located in the quaint surroundings of mountains, the Brestovac Sanatorium was built as one of the leading TB care facilities with its location giving the perfect healing surrounding to the patients. But behind the formation is a beautiful love story of a doctor who built the Sanatorium in the memory of his tuberculosis ailing lady love whom he lost due to the deadly disease. The hospital is also said to have rendered its services during the time of the World War II post which it fell into ruins and was abandoned. The site is open for travellers who want to see the remains of the hospital, be a part of the painful love story behind it and also by paintballers who indiscriminately use the space for their unsuspecting targets. This one is a must see place!
