In the north of Croatia, in the area called the Kvarner Bay, there is the green island of Loshinj. On the east side of the island is the village of Veli Losinj, which was once larger than Mali Loshinj, and the name suggests, because Veli in Croatian means big. Today it is a small village with about 1500 inhabitants. If you climb a hill above the town and look the other way, you will see only the islet of Susak and, as far as the view goes, the blue sea.Interesting tourist attractions are the church of St. Antun Pustinjak with a bell tower from 1774 and the most valuable sacral collection of the Kvarner islands, the Roman church of St. Nicholas and the 16th century watchtower.Veli Losinj is also known for a climate favorable to your health, where allergies, skin problems and lung diseases can be cured or cured.During a walk through the narrow streets of Loshinj, you will be enchanted by the Mediterranean flora, magnolias and palm trees.
