Transportation around Croatia
While in Osor, Cres, Lubenice and Beli you feel the atmosphere of the past with every step of the way, in Mali Losinj one feels the breath of maritime captains. The nucleus of the town and many stately villas date from the 19th century when the citizens of Mali Losinj were very well off due to the peak of maritime navigation here. If you happen to be a guest in one of these captain's homes or villas, ask the owner and he might show you old family photographs, furniture brought from England, vases and porcelain from China or Japan, souvenirs from Africa or South America and so on. The spirit of Losinj's seamanship is present in such houses. Today's seamen, faithful to the old tradition, untiringly bring old and new objects from afar. In the summer months, when about 10,000 tourists flood Mali Losinj, the seaman's spirit falls into second place. This is when the town's newer character as a tourist resort is revealed. Numerous restaurants, cafes, tourists agencies, excursion boats and other facilities tempt and invite you to visit them.
