Mali Lošinj – Days of the Apoxiomen
There are only seven preserved statues of the Ancient Greek athlete statue Apoxiomen in the world, one of which was discovered in Croatia.

The bronze statue was discovered in 1999 near the island of Lošinj, stuck between two cliffs, 45 metres under water. The athlete more than 2,000 years old was taken out of the depths of the sea and meticulously restored.

At the end of this year, Apoxiomen will be put on permanent display in Mali Lošinj in the Kvarner palace.
On the occasion of this significant archaeological discovery, the inhabitants of Lošinj are organising the Days of the Apoxiomen, held between April 24th and 27th. During this period, visitors will be able to attend various events surrounding Apoxiomen, from photography exhibitions, exhibitions of ceramics and Ancient jewellery, to presentations of Greco-Roman wrestling and Ancient hair-styles to a Mister Apoxiomen and Roman Miss pageant. The events will also include archaeological scuba diving and a presentation of Ancient gastronomy, and Lošinj hotels will feature a special offering of Roman baths and massages.
