Old Catholic Churches and monasteries can be found in abundance, as well as archaic Roman villas, charming olive mills and romantic lighthouses.

It was found in 1999, surrounded by calmness of Adriatic’s bottom, disturbed only by passing of happy dolphin groups. These friendly animals might be the first to greet you on your way to Losinj.
