Revitalising break on the islands of health

The Kvarner Bay hides the islands Cres and Lošinj, health destinations, with endemic island cuisine and a rich cultural heritage. The clean sea air of the Mediterranean climate, with great choices for an active holiday and more than 200 sunny days a year, make these islands favourite destinations for the revitalisation of the body and mind.

While you are walking or riding a bike on more than 380 kilometres of theme promenades on Lošinj, Ilovik, Susak, Unije or Cres, you will feel the pleasant scents of around 1,200 plant species. Relax in numerous hotels and resorts that offer various programmes for restoring tired skin and revitalising the body in the clean air.

The rich cultural heritage of the Cres-Lošinj archipelago, called the “Apsyrtides” after the legend of the Greek hero Apsyrt, originates from Antiquity and is reflected in the architecture, many customs, stories and historic artefacts. The ancient bronze statue, Apoxyomenos, recovered from the seabed between the islands of Vela Orjula and Lošinj, bears witnesses to the uniqueness of the culture and tradition.

You can try local dishes by skilful chefs in many restaurants or taste the specialties of Apoxyomenos’ cuisine, based on preparing and using ingredients from the period of Antiquity, as well as traditional specialties from the history of Lošinj seafaring.

The fans of traditional and cultural events will be able to have fun at the Osor Music Nights, the Nerezine festival Muaj and the International Bagpipe Festival, and those who prefer sports may take part in the races Downhill, MTB 4 Islands and the Lošinj Half-Marathon. Owing to the long seafaring tradition, this is the site of the New Year’s Cup in underwater fishing, while you can also enjoy the Lošinj Pasara Rowing Regatta and the Nerezine Traditional Boat Regatta, the Lošinj Optimist Regatta and the traditional fishing Arbunada.
