Mali Lošinj

  • Town/Village

Fodor's Review

With 8,000 inhabitants sheltered around an inlet, Mali Lošinj is the largest island settlement in the Adriatic. In the 19th century Mali and Veli Lošinj experienced a golden age, when many wealthy sea captains lived on the island. Brightening the waterfront, the mansions and villas they constructed contribute greatly to the towns' appeal. A long tradition of tourism means that you'll find a healthy selection to choose from. A number of attractive churches will catch your gaze as you wander around town. Somewhat scruffy and announcing its presence with a tall, square tower that tapers to a spike at the summit, the 15th-century St. Martin's Church was the original centerpiece around which the town was built. The cemetery it lords over amalgamates much of the history of the town. If you wish to dig a bit deeper, The Church of Our Little Lady hosts many fine examples of religious art.
