In addition, Cres is famous for its delicacies from figs to lamb meat products. The city and the center itself make the streets a maze, and if you do not know the right path, the road will always take you to a new place. The remains of Greece and rivers were found in the town itself.

As we approach the island of Losinj, we come to the sign of Lubenice, rolling long roads, far from all the main centers of the island. Situated on a hillside, with a beautiful sea view, and a beautiful sandy beach, it takes 30 minutes to walk on the steep road. This town has been inhabited for over 4000 years, and the city itself has been well established and strategically important during the winter months. During the summer months you can come and enjoy except for the Watchtower evenings of Renaissance music.
Finally, we arrived at the entrance to Losinj, Osor. The most important place in history, especially in the Roman Empire when Osor was a developed and established city, a maritime center. The town became a Roman town already in 167 BC. . At that time, it was an important port and a shopping hub, while the city itself is nowhere near a port. Today, Osor is a cultural and historical city, perilous to part of the seaside walls, and every year in the summer months has become known to the general public for its Osman-style music evenings. And to get to know the history of this city better, explore its interior and the changes that take place from entering the outer world into one of the main centers of maritime affairs at the time of the Roman Empire in the area of the Kvarner. Also see the interesting collection of historic artificial to today’s preserved sights in the Osor Museum.
After you pass the bridge at Osor, you will be waiting for Nerezine. A place that has been a hectic business in history has turned and became famous for making wood boats. Today, the old scaffold is regulated by the marina to accommodate a larger number of yachts and sailboats, thus strengthening the tourist spectrum of places. In the resort you will find 2 campsites by the sea, beautiful coastal beaches, and if you are a little away from the place you will find a beach ride that will fascinate you with its famous burgers and a sandy beach.
The main center and the largest town on all the islands in Croatia, has 7000 inhabitants, and is spreading and developing every year. Unconsciously known for shipbuilding, which has been developed today but not as much as before. Thanks to the Austro-Hungarian rule, which, by investing in the villas that today make up this place, has stimulated tourism, which today is the main branch of the island’s survival of fisheries and agriculture. The city itself was re-italianized after the Austro-Hungarian rule and annexed to Italy until 1942 when the island was returned to Croatia. The lowest number of inhabitants after the war was 2200. With the development of tourism, Lošinj is now positioned on the map of the world as one of the most famous summer destinations. In addition to the finding of the abtic bronze statue Apoksiomen, a special 5-room museum was built, in which the story of the age when the seagulls were floating in these seas and the way in which this ancient statue got its present appearance.

The Veli Lošinj is mentioned already at the end of the 14th century when the first 12 families moved in with the permission of Osor to today’s area of St. Nicholas above Veli Lošinj. Over time and with the constant development it spread and came to the first of all St. John to expand to church m
Mother of God and eventually came to the present center of Velog Lošinj, a river that was built several times and built one of the largest churches in this area which currently has one of the most famous collections of paintings from the era of famous Italian painters of Kvarner islands B. Vivarinija, F. Polenza and other. Not so, Velo village was a short time known for the sailing shipbuilding, until the primacy took over the motorboats. There is a tower in the center of Velika Lošinj, which protected the inhabitants from attacking the pirate from the sea, and to preserve the food they had sacrificed to them. Inside the tower are 2 floors, with an open tip from which they attacked with hot oil. One of the interesting things to look at is the area of the Veli Lošinj Spa, where you can find over 80 different plants. Also in the very center of the city is the Dolphin Protection Center, which was established in 1999 and is concerned that the dolphin habitat is preserved, safely and to increase the number of good dolphins in this area.
