One of the Most Beautiful Archipelago in the Adriatic - The Pearl of Adriatic

stunning italian history

The island of Lošinj is part of the Cres - Lošinj archipelago, the biggest group of islands in the Croatian Adriatic. The Lošinj islands comprise Lošinj, Unije, Ilovik, Susak, Vele Srakane, Male Srakane and 30 other smaller islands, islets and rocks.
Mali Lošinj is the biggest town on the Adriatic islands, well known for its long tourist tradition. The fact that you can find an isolated beach far from the stress of civilization by taking a 15 - minute walk from the town centre makes this place special.
Veli Lošinj, the first larger settlement on the island, thus named ´Veli´ (big), is smaller than Mali (small) Lošinj today. Veli Lošinj was one of the favourite climate health resorts among the Austrian aristocracy, and is still renowned today. Facades painted in lively colours, a church and a tower adorn the small town harbour.
The Mediterranean brings its scents and beauties closer to Europe, and the specific climate characteristics make these islands a perfect place for a holiday throughout the year. Small picturesque towns, gravelly beaches, numerous green paths and promenades, fine restaurants by the sea and cafés on the quay, comfortable hotels and hospitable people are reasons enough to spend your holiday on Lošinj!

Island Lošinj short history - Apsyrtides

sea, the beaches
The historical name of the archipelago - Apsyrtides - is associated with a legend about a mythical hero called Apsyrt, who his sister Medeia had killed. She threw parts of his body into the sea and they turned into the Apsyrtides Islands. The history of the oldest settlements on the islands (Lubenice, Osor, Beli) goes back over 4000 years, and the Roman town of Osor was the Bishopric seat in the 9th century. Having been practically uninhabited until the 13th century, by the 19th century Lošinj developed into one of the leading regional maritime forces, and the town of Mali Lošinj became the second most important harbour in the Mediterranean, after Trieste. The people of Lošinj were esteemed as the best navigators in the Mediterranean. It was in this era that the architectural appearance of the centre of Mali Lošinj was defined, and it has remained almost unchanged to this day. The first hotel was built in 1887 and called Vindobona, after the Roman name for Vienna. Because of its exceptional climate characteristics, Lošinj was pronounced a climate health resort, pursuant to a decree passed by the Ministry of Health of the Austro - Hungarian Monarchy. Lošinj became one the favourite holiday destinations among the Austro - Hungarian aristocracy, who built numerous villas and summer residences which still adorn Lošinj today.

Lošinj health resort since 1892.

sea, the beaches
The local inhabitants of the island of Lošinj have always been aware of the pleasant, healing and almost miraculous effect of the climate on their island. In 1880 Ambroz Haračić, a professor of renowned nautical school initiated his 25 year-long meteorological observation which, scientific in its approach, confirmed exceptional properties of the island’s climate. In 1885 dr. Conrad Klar, a famous Austrian specialist for allergies and respiratory diseases, brought his son on the island to recover from a grave disease. Three weeks later his son was fully recovered and dr. Klar familiarized the experts with a phenomenon of Lošinj. In 1892 on the basis of meteorological measurements carried out by Ambroz Haračić and further analysis of the Viennese experts, Mali and Veli Lošinj were proclaimed the health resorts by the contemporary State Ministry of Health of Austro-Hungarian monarchy. Several factors make the climate of the island unique.
The island is approximately 30 km distant from the land which eases the effect of strong north wind and cold European anticyclone. It is also very narrow and long with the maximum width to 5 km which does not allow the extreme cooling of the sea and the favourable effect of the aerosol may be felt on the entire island. It is located on the dividing line between the East European anticyclone and Mediterranean cyclone which eases the influence and unpleasant effect of these disturbances. The natural healing factors of the island are the result of the climate, air, sea water, vegetation, footpaths, trails and Sun radiating. The latest analysis dating back to the period between 1981-1991 have confirmed all the basic information collected at the end of the 19th century.
