mali losinj

The Island of Losinj (75 square km, 8.500 inhabitans.) is place, that, on the contrary to Cres, was a holiday destination since the beginning of the past century. It's lenght is of 18 miles and it its width is up to 3 miles. There the vegetation is much more luxuriant than in Cres, due to the mild climate, that in Losinj gives the opportunity to cultivate, beyond olives, also vegetables, wine and officinal herbs as well. Losinj is never lashed by the cold winds from the continent as it happens in Cres. Therefore the climate in Losinj is milder, the vegetation is more luxuriant and the island is surroundet by an archipelago of green islands. The sailors made a lot of efforts in order to cultivate exotic plants on this island and to increase the interest for tourism on their home island, so since 1886 they started the establishment of parks with palms, agaves, oleanders, orange trees and many pine woods. Losinj was under the Cres' Government until the 14th Century. Only after an agreement with the Osor Government the Losinj inhabitants obtained their autonomy rights.
The chief town is Mali Losinj (5200 inhabitants) and is an antique healing an fishing place, situated at the end of a deep and shielded bay. There you can enjoy the first hint of subtropical climate. There are plams and glamorous villas everywhere, with fascinating fronts, that remind the brilliance of the past ancient times.
