It was an awesome and delightful experience to learn the rich history of this small town. I learnt that the name Osor is derived from the name of the ancient hero Apsirt, which makes this town mythical. Osor is a lovely town with nice gardens that are good to have a photoshoot session.
I love beautiful space and Osor offered exactly that! the town is magnificent with love gardens full of blooming flowers and amazing trees. This city is perfect for picnics and evening walks.
Great history of the place and amazing sites that we were able to visit. We were perplexed by the whole town and by the beautiful ancient wall . The tour around the forts was remarkable and would love to do it again some other time.
This town is really historical. I loved walking along its streets. The buildings were really old. It had unique and simple structures. The view of the sea was very therapeutic. It is a really small but amazing town.
